Wärtsilä to set up manufacturing plant in Brazil

19 March 2013

Wärtsilä is to set up a new manufacturing facility in Brazil to meet increasing market demand, particularly in the offshore market. The company's investment in the new facility is approximately € 20 million.
The manufacturing premises will be based on a multi-product factory concept for the assembly and testing of Wärtsilä generating sets and propulsion products. In the initial phase, activities will focus on medium sized, medium speed generating sets and steerable thrusters, with the possibility to flexibly expand the product range to respond to market needs.
The new plant will be located some 300 km north of Rio de Janeiro in the Açu Superport Industrial Complex. Construction of the 4000 square metre plant, with its own waterfront and quay, will start in April 2013 and it is scheduled to be fully completed by mid 2014.
