Developing automated and optimised operations to increase system intelligence and efficiency resulting in emission reduction
In order to drive further emission reductions and enabling the implementation of new fuels as an economically viable option, Wärtsilä will together with the ecosystem partners develop digital technologies that enable significant reductions in fuel consumption leading to further savings in time, total lifetime costs and emissions.
Main objective: Optimise the operation on fleet and vessel level to reduce energy consumption and related emissions, and increase the shared value in the ecosystem
List of important research topics:
- Platform enabling cloud applications, user interface onboard and cloud
- Development of optimisation and “autonomous ready” AI models, APIs and libraries to quantify energy usage and related emissions
- Developing open APIs for equipment integration onboard, integration of new data sources, equipment and sensors
- Development of applications supporting the visibility (tracking, awareness, reporting), operational optimisation, integration with autonomous actions supporting the overall technology landscape
