Wärtsilä in the Dominican Republic
In 2001, Wärtsilä opened its local service network station in the Dominican Republic to increase Wärtsilä service level to its customers in the country as well as in Haiti and Cuba. The company was named Wärtsilä Dominicana CxA.
In 2003, due to the rapid increase in workload, Wärtsilä decided to extend the workshop and add more reconditioning facilities. Today, Wärtsilä Dominicana operates the most capable workshop in the Caribbean, performing any kind of work related to power installations in the marine and energy markets.
In the Dominican Republic, we service not only the large number of Wärtsilä Engines, which represent about half of the grand total of Power Plants in the island, but we also have solutions to any type of medium or low-speed engines and all the Power Plant and Marine related equipment.
For the peace of mind of our customers, we offer customized Operation and Management Services ranging from Spare Parts Agreements to full day-to-day operation and management of a Power Plant.
Wärtsilä Dominicana is specialized in supplying service to vessels from all over the world operating in the area. Our Field Service engineers are always available for trouble shooting and emergency repairs of any kind of engine and propulsion system. The capabilities of our local workshop further assure the perfect technical back-up for governors, turbochargers or any other kind of service.
