The launch of a new online platform for the popular Wärtsilä Encyclopedia of Marine Technology, formerly known as the Encyclopedia of Ship Technology by Wärtsilä is welcome news. The new site promises a that it is more user-friendly and has more links to relevant internal and external data than the previous platform. It also has common functionality with the existing wartsila website and better connections with social media sites, thereby enabling sharing and more convenient user interaction.

The launch of the new online platform is to be announced during the CIMAC World Congress, a forum for the combustion engine industry, which is being held in Helsinki, Finland from June 6 to 10 this year. Wärtsilä is a main sponsor of the event.

Ongoing industry support programme

The Encyclopedia is part of Wärtsilä's ongoing industry support programme aimed at helping current and future marine engineers, naval architects, and other industry specialists. It also provides valuable assistance to anyone reviewing the shipbuilding trends that are moving the industry forward. The site provides definitions for current terminology used in the marine industry's technical vocabulary.

"The Wärtsilä Encyclopedia of Marine Technology is a practical means of passing on the company's know-how and experience to others. At the same time, as a technology leader in this field, we recognise our obligation to give something back to the industry we serve," says Jaakko Eskola, President & CEO, Wärtsilä Corporation.

"We are pleased to introduce the new online platform as it will make it easier for readers to access and use the information provided. It also strengthens our commitment to move into the digital future along with our customers and stakeholders," says Roger Holm, President, Wärtsilä Marine Solutions.

The second edition of the Encyclopedia was launched in June 2015 at the Nor-Shipping exhibition and conference in Oslo, Norway. The first version was published in 2008, and the rapid development of new technologies led to the need for a second edition.
