Wilson to implement Fleet Operations Solution from Transas

Wärtsilä’s Transas division has announced the signing of a new contract to supply a Fleet Operations Solution (FOS) to Norway-based fleet operator Wilson ASA, with the new infrastructure to include onboard navigational and communication components as well as access to fleet data from shore-based locations.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The roll-out of the new set-up will be one of the first applications of the Thesis concept within Wärtsilä’s Smart Marine Ecosystem vision, which aims to connect fleet operations with ships, ports, and with coastal traffic management, using shared data to increase safety, reliability, and efficiency.

“For Wilson’s extensive fleet operations, flexibility and reliability are of the utmost importance,” said Thorbjørn Dalsøren, general director, Wilson Ship Management.

“We have worked with Transas for several years, and see them as a trustworthy and competitive partner in developing the systems needed to secure our most efficient operations, and we expect that within a short period Transas will be able to equip our vessels and support them.”

The managed service package incorporates elements of the recently launched A-suite portfolio of decision support tools developed by Transas, which applies machine-learning tools within a maritime setting to improve operations.

Wilson will also implement Transas’ Advanced Remote Training for Seafarers (ARTS) system, an e-learning application within A-Suite that provides online access to manufacturer-approved type-specific training courses for Navi-Sailor ECDIS.

“This landmark contract with Wilson to roll out the Fleet Operations Solution demonstrates the value that digital solutions can add to large fleet operations in today’s business environment. Joined-up technology has a definite role to play in the marine sector’s transition to a new era of efficiency,” said Frank Coles, Transas leader for Wärtsilä Voyage Solutions.

As a managed service, the FOS is delivered based on fixed monthly fee payment terms, which cover ECDIS charts and associated updates, and maintenance. The charge also incorporates all airtime costs incurred.{/mprestriction}
