A new services portfolio has been launched by Wärtsilä designed to optimise of generation assets in real-time, improving predictability.

Wärtsilä Genius services is designed to help seize the opportunities from digitalisation under three product families and are targeted at marine, energy and oil & gas markets.

For the power generation market there is a need for customers to cope with the increase in renewables, which creates the need for greater flexibility in power generation. Additionally, utilities and Independent Power Producers (IPPs) in the energy sector are constantly looking for services that can decrease costs.

‘Wärtsilä Genius services are designed to optimise, for example, an installation’s energy efficiency, or even the management of an entire fleet. This will be done by integrating advanced dynamic voyage planning, ship efficiency advisory services and energy analysis, as well as extensive condition monitoring of the main equipment into one consolidated solution,’ says Ari-Pekka Saarikangas, Director, Asset Performance Optimisation of Finland-based Wärtsilä Services.
