By emphasising sustainable innovation and total efficiency, Wärtsilä maximises the environmental and economic performance of the vessels and energy solutions of its customers.

Designed to meet all IMO DP class requirements, our laser and microwave sensors can be integrated by all major DP manufacturers and are used on a daily basis by most Offshore, Platform Supply Vessel, Shuttle Tanker and FPSO operators for DP1, DP2 and DP3 class vessels.

Our products accurately measure the relative position of the target in relation to the sensor to enable the vessel to hold position and operate safely in close proximity to an installation, immune from GPS errors caused by shadowing or reflections.

In 2018, Guidance Marine released the first targetless laser position reference sensor; SceneScan. The SceneScan System is a high accuracy rotating laser sensor to provide positional information to allow automated approach and/or station keeping relative to a structure or vessel. It is designed to be semi-portable and straightforward to operate.

SceneScan provides tracking information relative to natural or man-made structures within the sensor field of view. It tracks by matching its current observation of the scene against a map generated from previous observations of the scene.

Guidance Marine invests heavily in its people and in their skills with innovation as the pivotal culture around everything we do. The expertise, passion, ambition and collective team ethos forms the cornerstone of our business.

We are committed to maintaining our position as a leading technology company and we believe it is our technology, investment in innovation and products, that will help shape the future of our industries.

At Guidance Marine, we pride ourselves on the awards we have received and been shortlisted for. These are a mark of our achievements in areas such as product innovation, growth, and international trade.
