Wärtsilä Making A Move to Digital Transformation

Finnish technology group Wärtsilä is implementing a digital transformation to become “a data led, insights driven, and agile technology company” in an effort to take a leadership role in the smart marine and smart energy ecosystems throughout their entire lifecycle.

According to the company, the aim is to increase efficiency while enabling a zero emissions society.

Wärtsilä said it has taken several actions to speed up the developments achieved during the last decade, with the focus being on future technology, notably the use of artificial intelligence, data analytics, open platforms, block chain and cyber security, as well as on creating new business models.

“Digital disruption is already affecting the energy and marine sectors and will do so increasingly in the future. We are building on decades of expertise in digital development and accelerating the pace at which we build new digital solutions, services and opportunities for our customers,” Marco Ryan, Wärtsilä’s Chief Digital Officer (CDO) and Executive Vice-President, commented.

“Wärtsilä’s recent acquisitions of Eniram and Greensmith demonstrate Wärtsilä’s ambitions and active role in helping its customers to benefit from smart technology initiatives,” Ryan added.

To accelerate this digital transformation, Wärtsilä has recruited a digital leadership team and established a new digital organisation with more than 400 existing Wärtsilä employees.

With an aim to develop digital services and products in a more agile way, Wärtsilä plans to launch digital acceleration centers globally in which it would take “promising” ideas and transform them into service concepts and products.
