YOU DON’T WANT TO SEE LIFEBOATS ON BUILDINGS

Well guess what, neither do we in Wärtsilä. But if we, people of this planet cannot get our act together, we might have to manufacture a product that should never exist.

THE WORLD AROUND US IS CHANGING

Extreme weather conditions, floods and rising sea levels are reality and it’s only getting worse. But all hope is not lost. There is still time to avert a global climate disaster, but we can’t do it unless we work together.

We teamed up with IFLScience to drum the message about climate change.

There is no denying it. Climate change is the biggest challenge the mankind has ever faced and we have to act now

LIFEBOAT FOR BUILDINGS –
A PRODUCT THAT SHOULD NEVER EXIST

We want to underline the urgency of the situation and to amplify the critical need to move climate change discourse to action. This is why the experts at Wärtsilä developed a product that should never see the light of day.

The hypothetical lifeboat for buildings is conceptualised and designed by Wärtsilä Ship Design and features Wärtsilä’s world-class smart technologies from both Marine and Energy.

All the features of the lifeboat are already here.

The smart technology behind it is no science fiction for us. We do this every day.

WE ARE #COURSESETTERS

We have set our course towards 100% renewable future and sustainable shipping. Our purpose enabling sustainable societies with smart technology drives everything we do.

Climate change and scarcity of natural resources call for innovative and creative solutions. Our technology is part of the solution.

Today, we are massive in energy, marine and everything in between. Wärtsilä’s extensive portfolio of environmentally sound products and solutions enable our contribution to sustainable global development.

Climate change is too big of a task to tackle alone. We need to collaborate with forward looking start-ups, partners, customers and future colleagues to find smart solutions for energy and marine.

We simply cannot afford to wait for the marine and energy industries to evolve at their own pace

SHOUT OUT TO START-UPS!

We are after start-ups with a mission to build a better world.

We are especially into renewables, environmentally friendly solutions, automation and smart use of data. But we are open for something totally new as well.

We are eager to collaborate with tech-heads around the globe and across industries to make perfect matches with the best talents.

Wärtsilä envisions a 100% renewable energy future. The energy landscape is in transition towards more flexible, sustainable and smarter energy systems and Wärtsilä is leading the transition as the Energy System Integrator – we understand, design, build and serve optimal power systems for future generations.

Wärtsilä leads the shipping industry’s transformation towards a Smart Marine Ecosystem. By connecting everything and utilising data analytics, we can automate and optimise the safe movement of cargo and people from one point to another, saving time, money, fuel and the environment in reduced emissions – eliminating the waste.

We are committed to An Oceanic Awakening, a global initiative focused on the radical transformation of the world’s marine and energy industry into one supremely efficient, ecologically sound and digitally connected ecosystem.

ART MEETS SMART TECH
co-creation is the name of the game

Often the best results are achieved with somewhat surprising partners like art students. We asked Aalto University School of Arts, Design and Architecture student Lavinia Nuvola to create consumer ads for lifeboat for buildings. Would you buy a lifeboat?

Autodocking

Afraid of crashing your neighbour’s window?

Autodocking makes docking smoother and easier. No more parking problems. You enjoy the ride, we dock your lifeboat for buildings for you.

The smart tech behind this hypothetical product is no science fiction in Wärtsilä. We do this every day. Hopefully not for this product, though.

Wireless charging

Are cables driving you mad?

With Wireless Charging you can forget about cables. Enjoy the ride, we charge the lifeboat for you.

The smart tech behind this product is no science fiction in Wärtsilä. We do this every day. Hopefully not for this product, though.

Dynamic positioning

Worried about your baby waking up?

Dynamic positioning keeps your lifeboat’s position and heading so smoothly that your little one will sleep like a baby.

The smart tech behind this product is no science fiction in Wärtsilä. We do this every day. Hopefully not for this product, though.
