Wärtsilä’s purpose is to enable sustainable societies with smart technology. The demand for clean and flexible energy and the need for efficient and safe transportation are increasingly affecting the way that customers operate. This forms the basis for Wärtsilä’s visions of a Smart Marine Ecosystem and a 100% renewable energy future.
The Smart Technology Hub is the place where we turn our visions into reality. In the Hub we will be able to do research, develop, innovate and pilot products and solutions that will support our journey towards a sustainable society. This is done together with ecosystems of players; companies, start-ups, organisations and academia. Wärtsilä’s close collaboration with the ecosystem will continue to develop through the Smart Technology Hub.
The Hub will be linked to Wärtsilä´s other Centres of Excellence globally and the Smart Partner Campus will even further deepen the collaboration with both local and global partners by acting as a natural platform for mutual innovation and co-creation. The location of the Hub is furthermore strengthening the ecosystem. The energy cluster in the Vaasa region is the leading energy region in the Nordics, and together with other key-players, we will position ourselves as a leading ecosystem of collaboration.
