Improving Ship Fuel Efficiency Through Connected Simulation
Posted Tuesday February 6 at 6:57pm
Digital simulation tools have gained acceptance in the marine sector over recent years, but their application is still generally disconnected, with little crossover between different design teams or the software they use. Connecting these tools gives much greater understanding of ship performance and can lead to significant design improvements.

In this webinar, Wärtsilä propulsion shows how using connected Siemens Simcenter portfolio products allows easy system simulation.
