"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.
