Wartsila introduces Nacos Platinum solid state S-Band radar system


(HELSINKI) — The technology group Wartsila announces the introduction of its new Nacos Platinum solid state S-Band radar system. This next-generation marine radar offering promotes safety via optimized target detection, regardless of the prevailing environmental conditions. Furthermore, the compact design enhances system reliability, while the elimination of a magnetron creates a significant reduction in maintenance costs compared to conventional radar systems.

“Wartsila’s smart marine vision is to utilize the latest technologies, together with high levels of digitalization and connectivity, to ensure even greater efficiencies and added safety. We see this as being essential to ensure sustainable profitability for our customers’ operations. The new solid state S-Band radar system is entirely in line with this thinking,” said Eberhard Maass, product manager, Navigation Systems, Wartsila Marine Solutions.

Wartsila’s Nacos Platinum radar systems are an integral part of the company’s navigation offering. It has particularly strong market penetration in the cruise, ferry, and luxury yacht segments. The solid state system is expected to enhance this market position even further. The first units are scheduled for delivery in mid-2019.

The new system will be featured at the SMM conference and exhibition to be held in Hamburg, Germany from Sept. 4 to 7 on the Wartsila stands, B6.220 and B6.310.
