See and feel our innovative working method
THE NEW WÄRTSILÄ EXPERIENCE CENTRE
As a technological company that develops smart solutions for and with clients, and because we believe it's important to express that, we are opening our first Experience Centre this year, where visitors can see and experience what kinds of things we do. Ultimately, more centres like this will be opening their doors across the whole world.
The new Experience Centre gives a clear picture of our innovative working method. It offers an inspiring peek behind the scenes, with themes such as design, equipment, software and re-use. Interesting presentations, wall-sized screens, the use of Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality and multifunctional furniture will all immerse visitors in the world of Wärtsilä.
Management came up with the idea for a Wärtsilä Experience Centre last year, and a number of collaborating departments worked the idea out. Atte Palomäki, VP Communications & Branding and joint owner of the idea, has high hopes for the centres. “We're helping to build a sustainable society with the aid of smart technology. The new Experience Centre is a perfect location in which to share our enthusiasm and our results with visitors. I expect our Experience Centres to demonstrate in a powerful way what we stand for, and I hope that colleagues will be proud to show guests around. The Centres are in any case excellent places in which to reinforce the ties with contacts”, says Atte.
The first two Experience Centres will be opened this year, one in the new head office in Helsinki and the other one in Powergate II in Vaasa. More Experience Centres will be created in interesting Wärtsilä locations in other parts of the world. They are to be used for presentations and events for clients, personnel and other contacts. They can also be linked together for joint meetings, for example.
