Wärtsilä launches Nacos Platinum upgrade

Wärtsilä is using the platform of SMM to introduce an updated version of its Nacos Platinum series of navigation, automation and control systems developed at the Wärtsilä Sam Electronics facilities in Germany.

The company said new features include Intelligent Route Planning, which takes into account weather and sea conditions to provide route and power optimization, which can bring notable fuel savings; scalable “plug-in” software for various applications; seamless integration with third party applications; remote maintenance; an easy-to-learn interface; and advanced security against possible cyber attacks.

"Wärtsilä has years of experience and deep in-house know-how in this field,” says Maik Stoevhase, director of automation, navigation and control at Wärtsilä Marine Solutions, “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."
