Wärtsilä opens new workshop and service centre in Papua New Guinea
Wärtsilä has opened a new office and workshop in Port Moresby, the capital of Papua New Guinea. This latest Wärtsilä facility will service power plant installations in the region's gold, copper and silver mining industries, as well as regional marine applications in the fisheries and offshore oil and gas sectors.
The new facility will be fully functional by the end of November 2008. It will be capable of supplying the following services: fuel injection services, engine component overhauling, automation services, propulsion systems, seals & bearings services, operational & maintenance contracts, engine overhauls, and a service exchange programme. In addition to supporting customers' installations, the facility will also help create new marine equipment service opportunities within the PNG Dockyard.
The PNG Dockyard has slipway capacity for vessels up to 125m in length. A state-of-the-art ship transfer system allows seven vessels to be serviced simultaneously, and there is a 150m lay-up berth for watering, fuelling and ship repair services.
