About Wärtsilä in China
Wärtsilä has been present in China for more than 20 years, through its fully owned subsidiary and long-term licensing agreements. To serve the world’s largest shipbuilding region, Wärtsilä has established joint ventures for propeller and auxiliary generating set production with leading Chinese shipbuilding groups and a joint venture for automation services. Wärtsilä also manufactures thrusters at its 100 per cent owned company facilities, while low-speed engines are produced by eight licensees and by a joint venture company. New acquisitions of Cedervall in 2011 and Hamworthy in 2012 further strengthen Wärtsilä’s leading position in the global marine services and offshore, marine gas applications as well as environmental solutions markets.
In the marine market, the leading Chinese ship owners and shipyards are Wärtsilä customers. Wärtsilä Services provides service and maintenance for its customers from eight locations in China, the largest of which is in Shanghai. In the energy markets, Wärtsilä has delivered altogether 3,500 MW of power plants to China. Including Wärtsilä joint venture companies, there are currently more than 2000 Wärtsilä employees working in China.
