The Wärtsilä Nacos Platinum series of navigation, automation and control systems has been updated to include a number of new functions. Among the most interesting of the new functions is Intelligent Route Planning, which takes into account weather and sea conditions to provide route and power optimisation and, therefore, notable fuel savings. Automated execution is also available. Other new features include scalable 'plug-in' software for various applications, seamless integration with third party applications, remote maintenance, a highly advanced and easy to learn interface, and highly advanced security against possible cyber attacks.
"Wärtsilä has years of experience and deep in-house know-how in this field, and the Nacos Platinum series is acknowledged as being a highly reliable and advanced aid to shipping around the world. This update will make it even more competitive," says Maik Stoevhase, Director, Automation, Navigation and Control, Wärtsilä Marine Solutions.
The Nacos Platinum series has been developed at the Wärtsilä Sam Electronics facilities in Germany.
