Wärtsilä and ABB deal to improve engine optimisation efforts

Performance data from ABB turbochargers will be exchanged under the agreement Performance data from ABB turbochargers will be exchanged under the agreement

Wärtsilä and ABB have signed an agreement to expand their cooperation in lifecycle service offerings, covering ABB turbochargers installed with Wärtsilä 4-stroke engines, to assist in optimising the performance of the equipment on board.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}Under the terms of the six-year service agreement, Wärtsilä will become an Authorised Service Provider for standard maintenance of ABB turbochargers installed with Wärtsilä 4-stroke engines, to support engine performance optimisation over the lifecycle.

Wärtsilä and ABB will share specific service data under the new arrangement, with ABB turbochargers to now be included in the Wärtsilä Online Services offering for digital monitoring.

“Being able to look at the whole installation increases its availability and efficiency, optimising service speed and agility. Customers can reduce their operational risk, ensure optimal tuning and save time by being able to overhaul their ABB turbocharger at the same time as the engine,” said Tomas Hakala, vice president, 4-stroke engine services at Wärtsilä Services.

“Wärtsilä’s aim is to expand its leadership as a global provider of quality services also to turbochargers. Thanks to this agreement, we are now able to serve our customers even better by offering them ABB turbocharger services coupled with our engine knowhow across 25 locations.”

The new deal is an evolution of a cooperation agreement between the firms that stretches back to 2005. ABB has the largest turbocharger population in the Wärtsilä installed base with 27,000 ABB turbochargers on Wärtsilä 4-stroke engines.{/mprestriction}

  • Abu Dhabi Maritime Academy takes delivery of Wärtsilä Cloud Simulation solution

    Wärtsilä has successfully delivered its brand-new Cloud Simulation solution to Abu Dhabi Maritime Academy. Comprising a combination of cloud-based solutions, including navigational, engine room and liquid cargo handling simulators, Wärtsilä is the first company to offer class-approved cloud-based simulation technology to the maritime industry.

    The online installation was deployed in early July, allowing the Academy to continue providing its training despite ongoing social distancing and travel restrictions.

    Abu Dhabi Maritime Academy is a maritime training provider in the region, which is now powered by Wärtsilä Voyage technology. The addition of the online installations of NTPro and TechSim will broaden the simulation-based training offering available at the Academy.

    Cloud Simulation technology takes simulation beyond the boundaries of the physical classroom, to provide location and device independence, and to deliver simulation-based training wherever, whenever, and however it is needed by the user.

    Remote access to training allows students and instructors to reach various Wärtsilä Voyage simulation models on their personal devices, away from the classroom and without the need for specific Wärtsilä software. Both the TechSim and NTPRO platforms in the cloud provide a classroom configuration with trainer and multiple student stations for familiar instructor-led training.

    “We are excited to be at the leading edge of this technology in the maritime industry and enable trainees to acquire a wide range of navigational and engineering skills, without the need to physically attend the training centre. By having remote access to the simulation library and any classroom-based exercise, instructors can easily manage the application and deliver the training,” commented Torsten Büssow, director, Wärtsilä Voyage.

    "We are very pleased to have this next-generation of blended-learning solutions delivered by Wärtsilä Voyage. The bespoke training that this solution allows to deliver will undeniably enhance the training experience of our students. The Wärtsilä Voyage distance learning application will surely open up many new training opportunities inside and outside the physical classroom”, said Capt. Clive Hotham, head of Marine Short Courses and Simulator, Abu Dhabi Maritime Academy.
