In August 2013, Wärtsilä announced the combination of PowerTech and Ship Power’s 4-stroke organisation into a single entity. The reorganisation is a continuation to the changes implemented in 2012. It aims to further strengthen competitiveness, and to serve customers more effectively with increased flexibility, faster decision making, and the optimal utilisation of resources. The new set-up will become effective as of 1 January 2014. Mr Roger Holm (41), MSc (Econ.), has been appointed Senior Vice President, 4-stroke, and a member of the Ship Power management team as of 1 September 2013. Holm will head the PowerTech organisation until the changes in the organisational structure become effective.
