Paul Welling
Sales Director, Wartsila Voyage at Wärtsilä Voyage


Paul’s experience in the maritime industry spans over 40 years. He acquired his Unlimited Master’s license after gaining the required sea-time in 1986 after initially graduating from the Maritime Institute, “ De Ruyter “ in Flushing, The Netherlands in 1978.

A sea-going career of 11 years on the passenger ships of Holland America Line was followed by 15 years as Area Sales Manager at Radio Holland USA during which time he was involved in the implementation of various new navigation and communication technologies on board ships.

Paul joined Transas USA in 2005 and was appointed Sales Director. The development of on-board, shore based monitoring, simulation and training solutions has always retained his interest and the 2018 acquisition of Transas Marine by the Wärtsilä Group has proven to only amplify this through Wärtsilä’s  Smart Marine initiatives and the drive towards digitalization of the entire marine industry. Currently Paul leads the sales of Wartsila Voyage Fleet Operations Solutions
