On 20 May Wärtsilä opened a new workshop in Gdansk, Poland. The location of close to shipyards and ports is said to strengthen Wärtsilä's presence in the Baltic and its position as a services provider in Poland.

The new facilities enable advanced servicing and repairs of engine components, as well as enhanced re-machining capabilities. Among the new activities that can now 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," says 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."

It focuses on service solutions for marine applications, including ship design.
