Wärtsilä Voyage, part of the technology group Wärtsilä, has completed an investment in Marindows, a Japanese company delivering an open digital platform for Japan’s marine industry, says a press release published on their website.
About the collaboration
Common vision of digitalisation
Both Marindows and Wärtsilä Voyage share a common vision of digitalisation as a means to accelerating decarbonisation and efficiency in the global marine industry, making them a perfect fit for collaboration. The move will also serve to strengthen Wärtsilä Voyage’s commitment to the Japanese market.
Optimization and autonomy
Together, Marindows and Wärtsilä Voyage will be creating significant value for the Japanese market through their collaboration, which will include the areas of vessel optimization and autonomy.
Efficient & eco-friendly operations
Safer, greener and more efficient operations are some of the benefits both companies set to bring to the market by reinforcing synergies and leveraging a digital ecosystem of applications that run on board and ashore.
“It’s a great pleasure to have Wärtsilä Voyage as the first overseas partner collaborating with Marindows and participating in our project. Marindows also welcomes Wärtsilä’s strong commitment to the Japanese market, which is one of the largest markets of domestic ocean transport in the world. However, this market has faced complex challenges such as a shortage of manpower and faced some obstacles in supporting sustainable shipping,” said Yasumasa Suetsugu, President, Marindows.
“We provide the solutions to overcome these challenges through digital transformation (DX) and we’re very excited to work together with Wärtsilä Voyage to add new value. Starting with DX, Marindow believes both companies can do more to create a bright maritime future and contribute to a sustainable world.”
