The technology group Wärtsilä has signed a 10-year service partnership agreement with the Swiss company Winterthur Gas & Diesel (WinGD).

The new partnership agreement appoints Wärtsilä as an authorized global service provider for all WinGD products and provides WinGD, a developer of two-stroke low-speed gas and diesel engines used for propulsion power in merchant shipping, and its customers continued access to Wärtsilä’s service network and services offering.

WinGD was established in 2015 as Wärtsilä’s and China State Shipbuilding Corporation’s (CSSC) joint venture for research and development (R&D), design, operational and manufacturing support, and the marketing and sales of two-stroke low-speed gas and diesel engines. Wärtsilä’s minority stake in the joint venture was transferred to CSSC in 2016.

Through Wärtsilä’s and WinGD’s service partnership agreement signed in December 2017, Wärtsilä continues to provide customer support and services to the end users of WinGD’s products, to WinGD as well as to its licensed engine builders.

Along with the agreement, Wärtsilä Services continues to have access to WinGD’s Intellectual Property Rights (IPRs) and technical specifications and is appointed as an authorized global service provider for WinGD products.

The agreement includes services conducted for two-stroke engines delivered under Wärtsilä, Sulzer and WinGD brands.

Wärtsilä Services supports WinGD customers with a network of services, including availability and delivery of parts, global logistics services, remanufacturing, overhauling, repair workshops, field service engineers, and high competence for two-stroke engine maintenance and the development of beneficial upgrade solutions.

The agreement will also make Wärtsilä’s integrated lifecycle solutions available to all WinGD-powered vessels, including the development of new digital solutions for performance management, ship management, and energy efficiency optimization.

In June 2018, Senegal will play host to the No.1 Annual B2B Upstream Oil & Gas event, which will bring together the senior decision makers from across the prolific West Africa region to discuss the trends and challenges currently facing the Oil and Gas industry.

Since the discovery by Tullow Oil in 2007 of the Jubilee Field in Ghana, the Upstream sector has refocused its efforts to explore similar plays around the entire West and North West African coast. These efforts were rewarded with Cairn Energy’s prolific discovery in 2014 followed by Kosmos’ in 2015. The West Africa region has the industry’s spotlight firmly focused on further unlocking the potential of this largely underexplored region.
