at Wärtsilä in South Africa


Wärtsilä enhances the business of its customers by providing power solutions for the marine industry that are environmentally sustainable, efficient, flexible, and economically sound. Our experience in providing propulsion, powering, and environmental solutions for Navy and Coast Guard vessels is long standing, and more than 90 countries entrust Wärtsilä with the supply of equipment for their naval fleet. Wärtsilä provides environmentally and economically sound integrated solutions for technically complex vessels, such as research vessels, dredgers, and maintenance vessels.

Being a truly global organization with an extensive network, we have the ability to create and supply solutions, large systems, with support from a broad product portfolio.  

Our goal is to be known as an established leading maritime company within South Africa and surrounding countries.  We want to become the preferred partner for the whole South African maritime industry by focusing on perception management.

We are developing our presence on the maritime market through a strategic partnership with the Company Urban Soul as nominated business development partner.

In November 2014 Wärtsilä donated an 8L20 diesel engine to the Nelson Mandela Maritime University in Port Elisabeth. The idea behind this donation is to enable all new maritime graduates to be able to familiarize themselves with up to date and modern diesel engine technology.
