Engine maker CSSC Wartsila Engine (CWEC), a joint venture between Wartsila and China State Shipbuilding (CSSC), is keeping an eye on opportunities in specialised vessels, in view of the prolonged slowdown of the conventional vessels market.
Finland’s marine equipment manufacturer Wartsila is poised to ramp up the capacity of its annual production of ballast water management systems (BWMS) at its China facility in Suzhou, in anticipation of increased demand ahead of the IMO regulation.
Technology group Wartsila has announced the introduction of a unique hybrid product, the Wartsila HY, the first hybrid power module of its kind for the marine industry.
Wartsila has announced that it will supply the engines and other propulsion machinery for the world’s first LNG-fuelled offshore construction vessel currently under construction at a Cosco shipyard in China.
China State Shipbuilding Corporation (CSSC) and Wartsila have penned an agreement to establish a joint venture firm to focus on the growing Chinese electrical and automation (E&A) market, especially for high-tech ship applications.
