Wärtsilä is proud to be part of the new Wasaline ferry project and the long-term relationship with NLC Ferry. The new ferry, called AURORA BOTNIA, will have a Wärtsilä delivered integrated package of solutions that will enable this ferry to be among the world’s most efficient and environmentally sustainable vessels when it starts operating next year. The ferry will be the first of its kind to get the Clean Design classification and it will be one of the most sustainable RoPax vessels in the world.
The ferry will be a concrete step towards implementation of Wärtsilä’s Smart Marine Vision, which is about the maritime industry working together towards a sustainable future. The vessel will act as a floating test laboratory linking to the Smart Technology Hub, which will allow real time monitoring and management of the vessel. This will improve efficiency and allow for further R&D of solutions that can help the marine industry meet the targets and environmental requirements in the future.
