Wärtsilä’s Smart Technology Hub (STH), a new integrated centre of research, product development and production is located in Vaskiluoto, Vaasa. STH is the latest tangible step in Wärtsilä’s path to drive decarbonisation in the Marine and Energy sectors. It enables us to innovate and manufacture clean technologies in a completely new way.
In this new technology centre we do top-notch research, develop, innovate and pilot new products and solutions. STH is a one uniform agile testing facility linking together various Centres of Excellence to improve product and solution development by maximising synergies. In this way we are able to effectively put to use all of the know-how we have in Wärtsilä all over the globe.
Wärtsilä has invested 83 million euros in modern testing and production technology for STH. The total investment in the Smart Technology Hub is over 200 million euros, consisting of office and production buildings, logistics and infrastructure. During 2022, all of Wärtsilä’s functions and personnel in central Vaasa will be moved to the new Hub, along with the logistics and maintenance workshop operations from Runsor, Vaasa.
