The world demanded change.

Join the Smart Marine revolution @ Nor-Shipping Hall D, Stand D03-40



4 - 7 June 2019, Oslo, Norway

Join the Smart Marine Revolution! 

There’s Nor-way around it – change is coming! Discover the ground-breaking technologies enabling a sustainable maritime future.

The marine sector stands on the threshold of rapid transformation, driven in part by the emerging technologies that have the potential to truly reshape the world in which we live and operate and most certainly owing to the mounting pressure to cost-effectively meet environmental compliance in line with consumer-driven need for change.

At Wärtsilä, we understand both the complexity of the industry and the need to meet the new realities faced by vessel owners and operators the world over. 

We were at Nor-Shipping to share our vision of a Smart Marine Ecosystem and to demo a host of our products, solutions and systems that deliver on this vision.

It was a pleasure to meet you at the Wärtsilä digital lounge at stand D03-40 where we shared our exciting new solutions, upgrades and the steps you can take today to get Smart Marine-Ready!

The smarter way to continuously improve performance and profitability 

Wärtsilä’s Operim – Operational Performance Improvement & Monitoring – provides owners and operators with real-time data on Wärtsilä products and solutions on-board. This enables the implementation of cost-saving operating performance improvements in a continuous and dynamic fashion. Vessels are only as efficient as the way they are operated and inefficiencies can translate into avoidable costs that impair profitability. Operim utilises the latest digital technology to provide the data needed to allow the vessel, and the machinery driving it, to be operated at optimal efficiency at all times. It monitors performance constantly so that adjustments can be made as operating conditions, including external factors such as sea and weather, change.

The smart approach that delivers greater efficiency and lower costs 

Wärtsilä’s Smart Water & Waste treatment system utilises connectivity and data-driven process optimisation to deliver trouble-free operation, compliance with international and local regulations, notable cost savings, and environmental sustainability. To the industry’s broadest portfolio of water & waste solutions, Wärtsilä has now added its in-house competences in digitalisation to create smart solutions that meet the challenging demands of shipping’s emerging new era. Combining advanced treatment technology with real-time data collection and modelling, our systems ensure both better performance and energy efficiency. At the same time, by constant remote monitoring of the systems, maintenance needs can be accurately predicted to avoid unexpected and unplanned downtime.
