Wärtsilä offers propulsion control solutions for electric motor and thruster systems, as well as for conventional mechanical propulsion systems. The system is designed with redundant and physically separated processing control units for maximum system availability and operational safety. Command levers have an electric shaft system, and the setpoint potentiometers are dual for maximum redundancy and safety.
Both hardware and software are tailored to meet demanding marine environment and operational requirements, with lifelong support engineered into every component. The PCS components (EMS, EPS) are not only proven in use but also approved by main engine manufacturers (WinGD and MAN Diesel), as well as by all the major IACS class societies.
