Wärtsilä has added another Chinese licensee with the conclusion of a licence agreement with Jangsu Antai covering the manufacture and sales of two-stroke engines.

The agreement, between Wärtsilä Switzerland and Jangsu Antai Power Machinery Co (JAD), allows JAD to manufacture and sell the entire portfolio of Wärtsilä two-stroke engines. JAD, which is the former large horse-power division of Wuxi Diesel Engine Plant, will initially focus on small and mid-sized engines up to and including X-series 72cm bore engines. Wärtsilä says that it expects JAD’s manufacturing capacity to make a significant contribution to the delivery of its low-speed marine engines to the large and still growing Chinese shipbuilding industry.

"We are delighted to establish this co-operation with one of China's major engine producers. Jangsu Antai Power has a well-deserved reputation for quality, and together we can serve our customers in China with faster delivery of Wärtsilä engines featuring the very latest technology," said Martin Wernli, vice president, two-stroke, Wärtsilä Ship Power and MD of Wärtsilä Switzerland.
