Tuesday, March 23, 2010

Wärtsilä, a ship power systems integrator, has signed a new agreement with Raytheon Anschütz, a division of Raytheon Co., USA. Raytheon Anschütz is based in Kiel, Germany. The agreement extends the scope of Wärtsilä's offering of integrated system solutions to include navigation systems, which can now be offered by Wärtsilä on a global basis.

"The co-operation between Wärtsilä and Raytheon is in line with our strategy of staying at the forefront of systems integration within the marine sector," commented Mr Jaakko Eskola, Group Vice President, Wärtsilä Ship Power. "This close association with Raytheon Anschütz is something that delivers benefits to the global operations of both parties. It gives us the ability to combine our engine and propulsion controls, our alarm and monitoring systems, and the Raytheon Anschütz navigation systems into a seamless integrated package."

Wärtsilä intends to make these integrated packages, combining navigation and automation systems, available for all types of vessels. Wärtsilä Services will also, as a result of this agreement, be offering global retrofit possibilities. Raytheon Anschütz will provide their entire range of Integrated Bridge Systems, including Multifunction Displays, Radars, Chart Systems, Conning Display, Gyro Compasses, Autopilots and Steering Controls, Speed Logs, Echosounders, and Communication Systems, which provide maximum flexibility for navigation data access at any location on the bridge, and delivers the information needed for safe and precise ship navigation.
