The technology group Wärtsilä and COSCO Shipping Heavy Industry have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) covering the development of local production resources, thus ensuring further development and support of Wärtsilä’s exhaust gas cleaning systems (EGCS) in the region. The agreement was signed in June 2019.

By combining the experience, expertise and competence of the two companies, both of whom hold strong positions in the marine market, this partnership will create a ‘one-stop-shopping’ service for exhaust gas cleaning systems, thereby providing customers with seamless deliveries and installation for both newbuild and retrofit scrubber projects.

Wärtsilä has long been at the forefront of sustainable technology development, and has years of experience in exhaust gas cleaning for marine applications. The company’s extensive reference list is evidence of its know-how and expertise in this field, offering different size options, a minimized footprint, retrofit packages, and environmentally sound options. Wärtsilä’s dedicated EGCS team provides assistance from initial planning to post-installation service agreements.
