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.
