Offshore vessels are becoming more complex and in many cases such as wind farms are larger due to the tasks that they need to complete requiring high performance propulsion systems for DP and transit. There is also tough competition to win contracts with charterers, which is driving the increased need for efficiency and reliability whether that is in a new build or an existing vessel.
Wärtsilä offers the most comprehensive range of integrated solutions in the market that enable existing vessels to increase efficiency and reliability in the face of tough competition and regulations plus for new builds delivers optimised solutions that reduce CAPEX and OPEX throughout the life of the vessel.
