ABB delivers the primary distribution solution and robotic technologies for Wärtsilä’s new Smart Technology Hub

ABB has delivered and installed the primary power distribution solution with switchgears and protective relays, as well as robotic technologies with ABB’s robotics partners, at Wärtsilä’s new technology centre. ABB is also responsible for the implementation services of the entire system.

“We are excited to provide our top-level technology expertise in Wärtsilä’s modern research, product development and production centre in Vaasa. The primary power distribution solution with protective relays allows for safe, sustainable and energy-efficient power distribution and use in the centre,” explains ABB sales manager Mika Numminen.

The management, design and implementation of the power distribution project is being handled by ABB’s local Energy Industries division in Vaasa, so support is nearby where needed. In addition, the facility uses numerous ABB robots to automate Wärtsilä’s production. The applications for demanding production processes have been designed and implemented with ABB’s robotics partners.

Wärtsilä’s new technology centre is an ecosystem in which companies, organisations, start-ups and universities can meet, share experiences, and create new smart solutions for maritime transport and the energy industry.

“Our long-standing experience is being put to good use in the new technology centre, where we are using solutions from several fields of business to promote a safe and efficient working environment. In addition, we can use the Smart Technology Hub and its cooperation opportunities to create new power and automation solutions for Wärtsilä or other customers,” Numminen adds.

Vesa Riihimäki, director for delivery management at Wärtsilä, says: “We are very pleased to have ABB in our partner network and be able to deepen our cooperation even further. We have selected leading players such as ABB for our Smart Technology Hub technology partners to bring the best products and solutions available to our technology centre. At the same time, we are creating a mutually beneficial agile ecosystem for the development and deployment of the marine and energy industry solutions.”
