Switzerland-based Winterthur Gas & Diesel (WinGD) is establishing an engineering centre in Chinese metropolis Shanghai to boost its technical capacities by 20 percent. 

WinGD is setting up the centre together with China Shipbuilding Power Engineering Institute (CSPI), a subsidiary of China State Shipbuilding Corporation Limited (CSSC).

WinGD is 100 percent owned by CSSC.

In response to the “successful” market response to its X-DF engines and the planned technical advancements to come, WinGD is looking to further expand its resources, continuing its focus on maritime two-stroke engine design, WinGD said in a statement.

“For nearly three years CSPI and WinGD engineers have been sharing expertise. While initially the cooperation focused on a few areas only, for instance engineering applications, CSPI’s capabilities in developing engine related systems and components has created further, enhanced synergies.” said Dominik Schneiter, Vice President of Research and Development at WinGD.

“Our new engineering center, in cooperation with CSPI, is a milestone in our efforts to increase our overall R&D capacities and our global knowledge base. It is one of the cornerstones of our strategy, to further expand our product portfolio and strengthen our market position in both market segments, diesel and dual fuel engines,” added Klaus Heim, WinGD’s Chief Executive Officer.
