Wärtsilä SOLAS solutions for 4-stroke engine rooms

The Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS) convention in its successive forms is generally regarded as the most important of all international treaties concerning the safety of merchant ships. The main objective of the SOLAS convention is to specify minimum standards for the construction, equipment and operation of ships, related to their safety.

Wärtsilä SOLAS solutions are designed to prevent the unexpected in regard to injuries, engine room fires, material and capital damages, or off-hire. Furthermore, SOLAS upgrades ensure that the requirements of classification societies, flag administrations, and port authorities are met.

Wärtsiläs SOLAS solution options consist of maintenance sets, splash guard solution improvements, upgrades for hot surfaces protection solutions, and SOLAS compliance audits.
