UPSKILLING PROGRAMME: the first students’ study visit- WARTSILA’S Hybrid Centre

Friday the 9th of November, students attending the Upskilling Programme were welcomed to the new Hybrid Centre, the first of its kind in the world, assembled in Wartsila. The facility is the world’s first real-scale hybrid centre consisting of an engine, batteries, power drives, a propeller load simulator utilising an electric motor, a power take off/in motor generator, together with the overall energy management system.The centre, capable of simulating operational data, will certainly be exploited to train crews, to optimize the data coming from the field and to give a real experience to customers.
