Wärtsilä opens large Shanghai facility

Shanghai: Wärtsilä Corporation today inaugurated the first phase of a new reconditioning workshop in Shanghai, China. It will provide high-quality reconditioning services to owners and operators of marine engines, gearboxes, controllable-pitch propellers, thrusters and other ship equipment. This first phase represents an investment of EUR 2.3m.

"This new one-stop-shop service centre employs the latest technology, expertise and design to provide top quality and warranty for all reconditioned components. In addition to serving both customers in the Shanghai area, it will keep up with the fast-growing demand throughout China. It is also envisaged that the scope of services undertaken from this workshop will be extended and that it will become one of the biggest reconditioning workshops in the world", said Tage Blomberg, Group Vice President, Services, Wärtsilä Corporation.

This workshop is the third to be established by Wärtsilä in China. One is in Hong Kong, and the other, opened in 1994 in Panyu, in the southern Guangdong province.  [22/03/07]
