Research and development, product launches

In August, Wärtsilä introduced a new optimised stern trawler design that will reduce fuel consumption and notably increase vessel efficiency compared to currently available designs. The propulsion system is based on the Wärtsilä 31 engine and Wärtsilä’s 2-speed gearbox. It also incorporates Wärtsilä’s hybrid battery technology, which offers a significant improvement in energy efficiency over conventional systems by running the engine at optimal load and absorbing many of the load fluctuations through the use of batteries.

The updated Wärtsilä Nacos Platinum series of navigation, automation and control systems was launched in September. Among the most interesting of the new features is Intelligent Route Planning, which takes into account weather and sea conditions to provide route and power optimisation and, therefore, notable fuel savings. Also in September, the recently acquired Eniram introduced a fleet performance monitoring service called SkyLight. The solution allows ship operators to monitor the performance of their vessels and fleet, and enables reporting, planning and cost optimisation.

During the third quarter, Wärtsilä launched QuantiServ, which offers reconditioning services, in-situ services, as well as onboard repair and overhaul services to customers operating multiple brand equipment in the marine and energy markets.
