Ship Navigation Simulator Helps Propel Plans for Unmanned Ships of the Future (2)

 

Published on April 2, 2014 at 8:47 AM

Ships of the future will soon be steered across the Seven Seas – unmanned. A new simulator is helping propel these plans forward. Partners from five different countries engineered the design of the autonomous freighter.

 Hans-Christoph Burmeister scans over the onboard instrumentation: an electronic maritime chart; a display of water depths; the adjacent monitor that displays the radar image. Burmeister then reaches for the wheel and steers his 220 m mass-goods freighter into a new direction. “We are now sailing on a course of 290 degrees, speed twelve knots.” Even if this scenario is quite realistic, Burmeister is no captain on the bridge, but is standing instead in a room at the Fraunhofer Center for Maritime Logistics and

HELSINKI, Finland – A new platform supply vessel (PSV) to be built for operations in arctic conditions is to be designed and powered by Wärtsilä. This is the first confirmed contract for Wärtsilä Ship Design's new series of arctic PSVs.

Wärtsilä will also supply an integrated package that includes machinery, and the electrical and automation systems, including the patented Wärtsilä Low Loss Concept (LLC). The company says this highly redundant diesel-electric system provides additional reliability for continuous operation in various failure modes.
