”One of the most significant recent projects with Protacon was the total upgrade of the trial test process and loading automation at Wärtsilä Vaasa, also including bus protocol modifications. A challenging aspect in this project was that the entire modification was completed without any major production breaks.
At the same time, improvements were made to the data collection system, because data management and analysis now play an increasingly significant role at us. Data collection is needed for measuring engine performance, plant and production efficiency and maintenance need – not forgetting data that is necessary in engine and genset startups. These improvements have increased the efficiency and quality level of the test trial event, as well as speeded up production.
