Wärtsilä has signed new licence agreements with seven of its long-term Chinese partners: four companies in the CSSC (China State Shipbuilding Corp) group, and three from CSIC (China Shipbuilding Industry Corporation).

CSSC has been a Wärtsilä licensee since 1978, and the four of its engine companies which have signed new agreements giving them licence to manufacture, sell, and service Wärtsilä low-speed engines for a further ten years, are HHM (Hudong Heavy Machinery), CMD (CSSC-MES Diesel), CME (Zhenjiang CME) and GMD (CSSC Guangzhou Marine Diesel Engine).

Similarly, three companies belonging to CSIC, a licensee since 2004 when it demerged from CSSC, have had their Wärtsilä licences renewed: thy are DMD (Dalian Marine Diesel), QMD (Qingdao Qiyao Wärtsilä MHI Linshan Marine Diesel), and YMD (Yichang Marine Diesel Engine). The agreements cover the period from 2013 to 2022.

Under the terms of the agreements, the seven companies are licensed to manufacture and sell the full range of Wärtsilä RTA, RT-flex and Generation X low-speed marine diesel engines within their specified territories.

The first orders for Wärtsilä’s Generation X (long-stroke) engines have already been received in China.
