News - Relocation of 2-stroke training in Central Europe

In order to align training activities in central Europe, Wärtsilä is relocating its 2-stroke training from Hamburg, Germany to the Wärtsilä Land and Sea Academy (WLSA) training centre in Drunen, the Netherlands, where a comprehensive range of product training is on offer. The relocation process has already started and we expect it to be completed by the end of Q3 2019.

This change will affect the delivery of our “RT-Flex operation and practical advanced” training. In order that we can continue to provide our customers with the same level of service during the relocation period, alternative training sessions will be made available in Winterthur, Switzerland or in our South Korea or US training centres.

Once the relocation is complete, 2-stroke training in central Europe will only be available in the WLSA in Drunen. Optional onboard or on-site training is also available.
