Wärtsilä introduces next generation radar system

Wärtsilä has announced the introduction of its new Nacos Platinum solid state S-Band radar system. This next generation marine radar offering promotes safety via optimised target detection, regardless of the prevailing environmental conditions.

The compact design also enhances system reliability, while the elimination of a magnetron creates a significant reduction in maintenance costs compared to conventional radar systems, the technology group said in a press release.

“Wärtsilä’s smart marine vision is to utilise the latest technologies, together with high levels of digitalisation and connectivity, to ensure even greater efficiencies and added safety. We see this as being essential to ensure sustainable profitability for our customers’ operations. The new solid state S-Band radar system is entirely in line with this thinking,” said Wärtsilä Marine Solutions Navigation Systems product manager Eberhard Maass.

Wärtsilä’s Nacos Platinum radar systems are an integral part of the company’s industry-leading navigation offering. They have made especially strong inroads into the cruise, ferry, and luxury yacht segments. The solid state system is expected to enhance this market position even further. The first units are scheduled for delivery in mid-2019.

The new system will be featured at the SMM conference and exhibition in Hamburg from September 4 to 7 on the Wärtsilä stands, B6.220 and B6.310.
