Winterthur Gas & Diesel Ltd (WinGD) is establishing an engineering centre in Shanghai with China Shipbuilding Power Engineering Institute Co. Ltd (CSPI) in order to increase its technical capacities by 20%.

WinGD is looking to further expand its resources, continuing its focus on maritime two-stroke engine design, in response to the successful market response to its X-DF engines and planned technical advancements to come.

“Our new engineering center, in cooperation with CSPI, is a milestone in our efforts to increase our overall R&D capacities and our global knowledge base,” said Klaus Heim, chief executive officer, WinGD.

“It is one of the cornerstones of our strategy, to further expand our product portfolio and strengthen our market position in both market segments, diesel and dual fuel engines.”

Engineering excellence

The new engineering centre will be located at the CSPI premises in Shanghai, PRC.

As part of its mission to achieve engineering excellence through collaboration, WinGD said it will also continue to invest in its successful engagement with L&T Technology Services Ltd, a leading global engineering services provider.

“The shipping industry is highly volatile and heavily regulated. It is therefore essential for us to partner with global companies like L&T Technology Services who bring cross domain expertise and can understand our complexities to consistently deliver through high quality engineering work,” said Dominik Schneiter, vice president of research and development, WinGD.
