Maersk Line newbuilds to add Wärtsilä integrated navigation system

Wärtsilä has agreed to supply its Nacos Platinum series of integrated navigation, automation, and propulsion control systems for 27 new container vessels being built for Maersk Line at yards in China and South Korea, the sum of three contracts agreed since summer 2015.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The addition of these orders means that the latest 47 new buildings in the Maersk Line fleet will all be fitted with the Nacos Platinum system. The equipment is scheduled for delivery to the yards commencing in April 2016.

The integrated Nacos Platinum set-up covers the control systems for navigation, automation, power and propulsion, allowing the vessel to be navigated, controlled and monitored from various onboard positions.

“We are looking at a global service and support network as one parameter when systems are selected,” said Jørgen Hansen, Maersk Line Ship Management.

“Furthermore, with the ongoing and growing need for data availability, both internally as well as externally, Maersk Line finds the Wärtsilä Nacos Platinum an attractive solution.”

“We also foresee many synergies across the three projects, not only in the design phase but also later when the vessels enter service, since operations with further innovation and developments are simpler and faster with one single supplier responsible for the whole system, rather than with several.”{/mprestriction}
