Wärtsilä launched its Wärtsilä Communication and Control Centre (Wärtsilä 3C) solution at the SMM exhibition in Hamburg, Germany on 7 September.
 
Wärtsilä 3C is the first system to integrate the entire vessel's control into one solution, the company said. With the introduction of Wärtsilä 3C, Wärtsilä's expertise in integrating its own products and systems, such as automation, propulsion and engines, with other operationally relevant equipment and systems to obtain a truly fully integrated solution, isn highlighted.  In this case, all the needed ship's controls and alarms are integrated with a common interface for the highest efficiency and best possible situational awareness. The Wärtsilä 3C has been designed in co-operation with experienced maritime professionals to ensure fluent control of the vessel, and to make ship operation easier and safer.
 
The Wärtsilä 3C system enables users to leverage energy management and integrated navigation solutions, and offers efficiency optimization and emissions reduction benefits. Route planning, optimal engine configuration and decision support will increase the vessel's fuel economy and reduce the maintenance requirements of the ship's systems. In optimizing engine performance, and ensuring maximum power availability with high efficiency, fuel consumption is reduced - as is, therefore, the volume of harmful emissions.
 
With the Wärtsilä 3C, owners can remotely optimize their assets and achieve real-time fleet management. The system is supported by Wärtsilä's global service capabilities to maximize the availability and efficiency of a ship's crucial operating equipment throughout its lifecycle. This global network is enhanced by the Wärtsilä Land and Sea Academy's training facilities, to provide comprehensive instruction on all ship operating systems.
 
The Wärtsilä 3C will comply with all major classification societies and notations, and is designed to meet the highest standards - even when being used in the most difficult operating environments. The modularized components and customized design make the Wärtsilä 3C suitable for all types of vessels. Furthermore, regardless of the ship's level of redundancy, it will maintain the same high system design and component quality. The navigation technology used in the Wärtsilä 3C is supplied by Raytheon Anschütz, a proven provider of advanced maritime navigational systems.
