CSSC Marine Services, the China State Shipbuilding Corp (CSSC) subsidiary formed last year, has launched its support and aftersales service business with an agreement with engine developer (and fellow CSSC subsidiary) WinGD.

Under the deal, CSSC Marine Services (CMS) will offer worldwide services - including field services, technical services, repair centres and the supply of solutions - to all WinGD low-speed diesel engines, including Wärtsilä and Sulzer two-stroke engines. The agreement also enables a platform for sharing engine data to ensure that service solutions and findings are fed back into future engine design.

Andrew Stump, president, CMS, said: “Since the establishment of CMS in 2017 we have been focussing on the necessary business processes, regulations, databases, stock investments, getting our warehouse operational and cultivating relations with important business partners. With the advantage of easy access to the technical knowledge of engines and ships built by our fellow CSSC companies, this approved supplier agreement with WinGD was the next logical step in our journey.”

CMS has also signed exclusive aftersales agreements with CSSC-MES Diesel Co (CMD) and Hudong Heavy Machinery (HHM) engine factories. The deals include management of all warranty processes for both WinGD and MAN brand engines. Other agreements have been signed with CSSC Jiujiang Fire Equipment Co, OMT in Italy and Greek marine technology supplier Technava.

The company’s mission is to provide competitive parts and services, field service and warranty for all CSSC-manufactured products. It offers global distribution of key engine components for engine builders including CMD, HHM, and CSSC Marine Power (CMP), including the management of warranty processes for both WinGD and MAN Diesel & Turbo designed engines.

Adding to its current Shanghai distribution hub, the company plans to open service centres on the north and south coasts of China and is assessing locations in key ports worldwide.
