Wärtsilä's Dubai Workshop Receives Major Overhaul Orders

Posted on December 15, 2008

Wärtsilä announced that its new workshop in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, though inaugurated only last spring, already has a number of major projects underway or just being undertaken, including the full overhaul of 11 Wärtsilä engines supplied earlier to a utility in China. Wärtsilä repurchased the 11 engines together with related equipment that had originally been delivered in 1995 to a power plant in China. The 12-cylinder Wärtsilä 46 engines in Vee-configuration, each with an output of 10 MW, had each accumulated some 40 000 running hours. Wärtsilä has a regular demand from customers seeking used and overhauled or reconditioned equipment.

The engine overhauls are being carried out on two engines at a time. Dedicated teams were assigned to each of the engines in order to minimize the time required, and to ensure that quality standards are met. When completed, the engines will be utilized for either marine or power plant applications complete with warranty.
