Anglo-Eastern rolls out Fleet Operations Solution by Wärtsilä

Hong-Kong based ship manager Anglo-Eastern has partnered with Wärtsilä to digitalise operations across more than 600 vessels.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"} The ship manager will roll out the Wärtsilä Fleet Operations Solution (FOS) to support voyage planning and execution as well as engine performance and fuel efficiency monitoring. FOS integrates individual processes that are otherwise separate from each other to optimise the planning, weather routing, fuel consumption, and speed of a vessel. It also facilitates ship-to-shore reporting and fleet performance management to reduce fuel consumption, taking into consideration charter party compliance, speed management, as well as the hull, propeller and engine condition.

Key benefits of deploying the Wärtsilä FOS include a unique platform that integrates with a ship’s planning station and electronic chart display and information system (ECDIS), immense cloud computing power, machine learning, data analytics, and onboard/onshore mobile applications.

Anglo-Eastern’s Capt. Pradeep Chawla, managing director of QHSE and training stated: “We believe that the Wärtsilä Fleet Operations Solution will further increase ship navigational safety, reduce crew workload, and improve fuel efficiency.”

“We are keen to leverage the advantages of the latest digital solutions to maximise the efficiency of our voyages and the performance of our fleet. Realising the opportunities made possible by the Wärtsilä Fleet Operations Solution, we look forward to contributing to the further development of the solution as an early adopter,” said Capt. Bjorn Hojgaard, chief executive officer of Anglo-Eastern.

“Our Fleet Operations Solution is exactly what we mean when we at Wärtsilä talk about utilising a Smart Marine approach to raise efficiencies, improve safety, and reduce the carbon footprint of shipping. We are excited to be bringing these benefits to the 600 vessel Anglo-Eastern fleet over the coming 12 months,” said Dr Torsten Bûssow, managing director of Wärtsilä Voyage Solutions/Transas.

  • Wärtsilä Translink certified compliant with latest DNV GL cybersecurity rules

    Wärtsilä has been awarded a DNV GL type-approval certificate and cybersecurity certification by the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) for its Translink solution, part of the company’s connected ECDIS concept.

    The cybersecurity verification has been issued according to the updated DNV GL rules and the internationally recognised standard for cybersecurity for bridge and navigation systems, IEC61162-460.

    Translink is a system that comprises the hardware, router, and software components. Together, they ensure that data can be encrypted as it is transmitted across the network using the latest protocols of cybersecurity. The certificates validate that the Translink Gateway has the key components in place to ensure secure operations. They also denote Wärtsilä’s commitment to developing cyber secure products in support of critical infrastructure and operations.


    Wärtsilä achieved the certification after in-depth analysis by DNV GL, verifying that the system follows best practices on cybersecurity. The product is type approved and ready to be applied for vessels with the DNV GL Cyber Secure Class Notation, while the IEC reference aligns it with the industry prerequisites, as well as any regulatory requirements.


    “Digitalisation offers more efficient and better ways of operating and designing vessel equipment, such as integrated voyage planning including the remote update of ECDIS charts. With a 3rd party cyber verification, vessel owners can take advantage of such new technologies with assurance that it follows best practice cyber security design. Wärtsilä Voyage has achieved the first Cyber Secure Type Approval using the updated February 2020 Type approval programme,” said Jarle Coll Blomhoff, group leader Cyber Safety & Security, DNV GL.


    “Great work has been done to ensure that Wärtsilä Translink not only complies, but sets the standard for ship-to-shore data exchange through secure channels. The full compliancy with IEC61162-460 and DNV GL Cyber Secure rules takes Wärtsilä Translink to an unprecedented level of security, quality and trust,” commented Anton Karelskiy, solution manager, Wärtsilä Voyage.


    Following more than ten years of experience in connecting ECDIS with implementation and certification of four generations of cybersecurity solutions, Translink provides a cyber secure gateway for Wärtsilä Navigation systems to the outside world, including for connecting ports or revolutionising voyage planning with the new Wärtsilä Navi-Planner.
