With these new agreements, valid from January 1st, 2018, both providers can now offer support for all two-stroke engine brands from WinGD, namely WinGD, Wärtsilä and Sulzer. The support includes delivery of spare parts, provision of service engineers, reconditioning and overhaul work on components, training, upgrade solutions and maintenance agreements.
The parties emphasised however that the rights of the licensed engine manufacturers, to provide services for their engines, remain unaffected by these new global service agreements. WinGD’s warranty and customer support will continue while these new agreements allow for normal scheduled and preventative maintenance or long term service agreements to now be provided by Wärtsilä and CMS as well.
WinGD operations director Rudolf Holtbecker said: “We are very glad to have signed an agreement with these two partners, Wärtsilä Services and CSSC Marine Service.”
He added: “It was important to us that Wärtsilä Services remained a key partner. Having been the sole global service provider for many years, they have an extensive global footprint with a full-service solutions portfolio in the lifecycle support for two-stroke engines. CSSC Marine Service, a new company in the two-stroke engines service market, provides additional customer choice and the opportunity to diversify the offered services meeting a larger variety of customer needs.”
