Wärtsilä celebrates today the inauguration of new office and workshop premises in Hirtshals, Denmark. Over the past year Wärtsilä has invested almost EUR 2 million in the new building.

“The new building will enable the company to improve the customer service and further develop its business, especially in the area of field service and ship service. The company and our employees really needed modern new facilities as the old buildings didn’t meet the requirements of the business.
