Maritime startup accelerators gain support

Wärtsilä has partnered with theDOCK Innovation Hub Wärtsilä has partnered with theDOCK Innovation Hub

Wärtsilä and Cargotec have respectively announced partnerships with two separate maritime startup accelerator programmes, to support the development of new technologies for the shipping and logistics sectors.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}Wärtsilä has agreed an official partnership with theDOCK Innovation Hub, an Israel-based maritime-focused startup accelerator which connects existing maritime players and new startups to create practical technologies for port, shipping and logistics operations.

"We are delighted to be working with Wärtsilä to seek relevant innovation for the maritime sector,” said Hannan Carmeli, founder and CEO of theDOCK.

“Wärtsilä has been leading the way in constantly exploring new boundaries. Areas such as the automation of vessel functions, advanced maintenance, cyber security, and others will play an important role in our collaboration.”

Cargotec meanwhile has announced its own agreement to join a Trade & Transport Impact programme initiated by Rainmaking Ltd that connects startups and established companies to address challenges in maritime, cargo transport and logistics.

The programme is scheduled to last three years, based out of Hamburg, Germany.

“Over the years we have built proven models and experience in other industries, and we are now bringing this to maritime, cargo transport and logistics,” said Alex Farcet, partner and founder of the Rainmaking startup accelerator.

“We are excited to do this with Cargotec, which has a unique position in the global cargo flow chain and needed capabilities and mindset to truly impact the industry change, together with other players in that field.”{/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.
