Wartsila Opens New Workshop in Poland

Wärtsilä Corporation opens a new workshop in Gdansk, Poland on May 20, 2011. Located close to Polish shipyards and ports, the workshop further strengthens Wärtsilä's presence in the Baltic area and its position as the leading services provider for shipping customers visiting Poland. The new facilities enable advanced servicing and repairs of engine components, as well as enhanced re-machining capabilities. Included among the new activities that will be undertaken are the overhaul of fuel pumps, fuel valves and air coolers, and overhauls of bow thruster units.

"Our customers will benefit from the increased range of services we now can provide," said Wojtek Wlodarczak, President and Service Manager, Wärtsilä Polska. "One of the advantages is that we now can handle very large engine assemblies. The new facilities also enable us to carry out engine repairs and overhauls using the very latest technologies, and to further expand into areas such as the supply of propulsion equipment and electrical and automation services."
