Strategic vision to transform marine services.

Wärtsilä is a global leader in providing smart technologies and complete lifecycle solutions for marine and energy markets. They wanted to transform their Service Operations with digital technologies. By emphasising sustainable innovation, total efficiency and data analytics, Wärtsilä wants to maximise the environmental and economic performance of the vessels for their customers.

Wärtsilä Services provides high-quality lifecycle services that enhance customers’ business – in a safe, reliable, and environmentally sustainable way.
