Finnish ship and power plant engine maker Wartsila Corp (HEL:WRT1V) will start offering seals, bearings and associated equipment for hydropower, tidal energy and offshore wind installations.
In addition to these products, the package also includes a range of services from repairs and fabrications to underwater services, the company said on Monday. Wartsila added that it will be offering tailor-made solutions that meet the specific service requirements for existing installations.
In mid-September, the company announced the appointment of Roger Holm as president of the marine solutions business. Most recently, Holm led the organisation responsible for Wartsila’s engine production and research and development (R&D) for the marine and energy markets.
