Wärtsilä navigation and positioning systems for Viking Line newbuild

Wärtsilä has agreed a deal to supply a range of systems to an LNG-fuelled ferry being built for Finland-based Viking Line at the Xiamen Shipbuilding Industry yard in China.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}Alongside propulsion and fuel management equipment, Wärtsilä will also install its Nacos Platinum integrated navigation technology, used to integrate various functions into a single system to allow the vessel to be navigated, controlled, and monitored from several onboard positions.

Also included in the overall scope of the project is the recently launched Wärtsilä SmartPredict system, which displays a vessel’s predicted future position and heading. The software evaluates the wind and sea forces affecting the ship to provide advanced motion prediction, with a configurable prediction time display.

Commencing in early 2021, the new vessel will operate across the Baltic Sea between Turku, Finland and Stockholm, Sweden. The ship is the first LNG-fuelled ferry of this size to be built in China, Wärtsilä says.{/mprestriction}
