In August 2013, Wärtsilä announced the combination of PowerTech and Ship Power’s 4-stroke organisation into a single business unit. The reorganisation is a continuation of 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. Mr Roger Holm (41), MSc (Econ.), was appointed Senior Vice President, 4-stroke, and a member of the Ship Power management team as of 1 September 2013. Holm also headed the PowerTech organisation until the changes in the organisational structure became effective on 1 January 2014.
