Connectivity is vital for ship operations and remote vessel management. By investing in digital solutions, vessel operators save on their future bills

Maritime satellite market, equipment manufacturers, fishing, and leisure markets can expect $42 billion in retail revenue between 2018 and 2028 as a direct result of satellite communications and connectivity technologies, claims NSR’s report. 

However, natural conservatism prevails in the sector – the shipping industry is still adapting to the digital age. Vast differences between ship operators add another layer of uncertainty.

Ships operate differently depending on type and size, engine, monitoring and managing system. Whatever the vessel's operating profile, Wärtsilä Voyage offers customised solutions that meet specific needs of a ship owner or a cargo vessel operator.

Wärtsilä Navi-Planner can dynamically adjust the route and speed of a vessel, approaching a port – for a just-in-time arrival. By enabling connectivity with ports, the system makes smart voyage optimisation possible. Smart voyage planning leads to improved safety, lowered CO2 emissions, and significant saving.
