Technological advances in ship control have raised the standards in economic, efficient and reliable vessel management. As a result, the demand is greater than ever for highly accurate automated steering to optimize vessel performance whilst reducing the crew workload.
Wärtsilä successfully combines decades of experience in heading and track control with the benefits of modern platform technologies and innovative user centered design. Thus we can provide navigators with a reliable copilot for the most demanding navigational situations.
