Wärtsilä has signed a partnership deal with the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) to promote maritime innovation and R&D, covering four different streams: digital acceleration, cyber-physical security, intelligent vessels and port operations.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}“This partnership with MPA is a great example of how combining digitalisation, ecosystems thinking, and collaboration will benefit the maritime industry and drive tangible value at pace,” said Marco Ryan, chief digital officer at Wärtsilä.

“Our joint focus on innovation, cyber-physical security, intelligent vessels and port integration is not only exciting, but will help us both to accelerate our smart marine strategies.”

The organisations will aim to educate and create awareness on maritime technologies as part of their collaboration efforts, as well as synergise and showcase activities across both the MPA Living Lab and Wärtsilä Digital Acceleration Centre (DAC).

“We are pleased to work with Wärtsilä on its establishment of a DAC in Singapore as it is aligned with our efforts to promote greater digitalisation of the maritime sector,” said Andrew Tan, chief executive of the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore.

“Together with the MPA Living Lab, we believe that Wärtsilä can bring its strong expertise to bear on autonomous and intelligent systems for shipping and ports.”

Outside of its deal with the MPA, Wärtsilä has also announced the creation of a new cyber training academy in Singapore, in partnership with cyber security company Templar Executives.

“We believe this is a first for the maritime industry; a centre of excellence including a cyber academy, combining threat intelligence and cyber education designed to support collaboration for our customers and the wider maritime community,” said Mr Ryan.

The cyber academy’s courses will cover a range of relevant topics, from cyber security coaching for senior management to cyber awareness for all organisational levels within the maritime industry. The academy will be located in the Wärtsilä DAC in Singapore.{/mprestriction}
