New Marine Reduction Gears from Wärtsilä
Wärtsilä announced that it will extend its range of marine reduction gears with the addition of three types and begin manufacturing these products in Khopoli, India. The new reduction gears are at the lower end of the output range. Production will start on the same site as Wärtsilä’s existing factory. The value of the investment is approximately US$1.3 million. The new unit in Khopol will have 20 employees and it will operate in parallel with the company’s reduction gear factory in Norway. The factory in India will allow Wärtsilä to expand its business volume in the growing Asian shipbuilding market.
