Wärtsilä Establishes New Environmental Products Unit
Wärtsilä announced plans to establish a new centralized environmental products know-how unit. Termed Delivery Centre Ecotech (DC Ecotech), the unit will focus on developing and delivering environmental technologies, as well as products for emissions reduction and efficiency improvement. By combining the broad and outstanding know-how within the company, Wärtsilä plans to strengthen its global position in offering environmental technologies for power solutions.
DC Ecotech will be a global unit within Wärtsilä and it is to be headed by Juha Kytölä, President of Wärtsilä Finland, and currently also Vice President, Delivery Centre Vaasa, Finland. The new unit will be fully operational from January 2009.
"Wärtsilä has many years of experience in delivering emissions reducing equipment for the exhaust stream of its engines, both in land based power plants and ship installations,” said Kytölä in explaining the reasoning behind this initiative. “Common to all these deliveries is the fact that they are tailor made for each specific installation. DC Ecotech will focus on both the further development of these technologies, as well as a portfolio of products that can be produced in volume."
DC Ecotech will act as Wärtsilä's center for proactively developing environmental technologies. Furthermore, in promoting and providing legislation know-how, the unit will help customers to comply with environmental rules and regulations as they become increasingly stringent.
