Wärtsilä extends WinGD service agreement
Technology group Wärtsilä has signed a 10-year service partnership agreement with Winterthur Gas & Diesel (WinGD), extending its existing relationship with the two-stroke engine developer.
Under the agreement, Wärtsilä remains an authorised global service provider for all WinGD products while customers of WinGD will have access to Wärtsilä’s worldwide service network. The agreement will also make Wärtsilä’s integrated lifecycle solutions available to all WinGD-powered vessels, including new digital solutions for performance management, ship management and energy efficiency optimisation.
“Digital solutions that optimise the energy efficiency of two-stroke engines are of great interest to customers in merchant shipping,” said Ole Pyndt Hansen, director, Wärtsilä 2-stroke engine services, Wärtsilä Services.
Wärtsilä’s support for WinGD, Wärtsilä and Sulzer brand two-stroke engines will include availability and delivery of parts, global logistics services, remanufacturing, overhauling, repair and field service. The company will also benefit from Wärtsilä’s competence in two-stroke engine maintenance and the development of upgrade solutions.
Wärtsilä Services continues to have access to WinGD’s intellectual property rights and technical specifications.
WinGD was established in 2015 as a joint venture between Wärtsilä and China State Shipbuilding Corp (CSSC) for the design, marketing and sales of low-speed engines. Wärtsilä’s minority stake was transferred to CSSC in 2016.
