Marine lifecycle upgrades

Make the most out of your asset

Optimise your vessel’s performance across its entire lifecycle

At various stages across your vessel’s lifecycle, you need to make decisions about how to keep your asset delivering the best possible value. These decisions can range from lifecycle extensions and modernisations to major repairs and even modification of a vessel’s purpose to take advantage of new business opportunities. Successfully carrying out complex projects on existing installations – including equipment upgrades, construction work, engineering, system integration and commissioning – requires world-class project management capabilities.

With more than 30 years of experience in delivering complex projects around the world, Wärtsilä is well-positioned to execute both EPC and equipment delivery contracts.
