Wärtsilä is proud to be part of the new Wasaline ferry project and the long-term relationship with NLC Ferry. The new ferry, called AURORA BOTNIA, has a Wärtsilä delivered integrated package of solutions that enables this ferry to be among the world’s most efficient and environmentally sustainable vessels. The ferry is the first of its kind to get the Clean Design classification and it is one of the most sustainable RoPax vessels in the world.
The ferry is a concrete step in implementing Wärtsilä’s path towards decarbonisation, which is about the maritime industry working together towards a sustainable future. The vessel acts as a floating testbed linking to the Sustainable Technology Hub, which allows real time monitoring and management of the vessel. This will improve efficiency and allow for further R&D of solutions that can help the marine industry meet the targets and environmental requirements in the future.
