Wärtsilä has signed a partnership deal with the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) to promote maritime innovation and R&D, covering four different streams: digital acceleration, cyber-physical security, intelligent vessels and port operations.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}“This partnership with MPA is a great example of how combining digitalisation, ecosystems thinking, and collaboration will benefit the maritime industry and drive tangible value at pace,” said Marco Ryan, chief digital officer at Wärtsilä.

“Our joint focus on innovation, cyber-physical security, intelligent vessels and port integration is not only exciting, but will help us both to accelerate our smart marine strategies.”

The organisations will aim to educate and create awareness on maritime technologies as part of their collaboration efforts, as well as synergise and showcase activities across both the MPA Living Lab and Wärtsilä Digital Acceleration Centre (DAC).

“We are pleased to work with Wärtsilä on its establishment of a DAC in Singapore as it is aligned with our efforts to promote greater digitalisation of the maritime sector,” said Andrew Tan, chief executive of the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore.

“Together with the MPA Living Lab, we believe that Wärtsilä can bring its strong expertise to bear on autonomous and intelligent systems for shipping and ports.”

Outside of its deal with the MPA, Wärtsilä has also announced the creation of a new cyber training academy in Singapore, in partnership with cyber security company Templar Executives.

“We believe this is a first for the maritime industry; a centre of excellence including a cyber academy, combining threat intelligence and cyber education designed to support collaboration for our customers and the wider maritime community,” said Mr Ryan.

The cyber academy’s courses will cover a range of relevant topics, from cyber security coaching for senior management to cyber awareness for all organisational levels within the maritime industry. The academy will be located in the Wärtsilä DAC in Singapore.{/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.
