The service offering

Wärtsilä Services develops close relationships with its customers, thus enabling an in-depth understanding of their business so as to extend the offering accordingly. Services provides complete support for its customers operating in the marine, energy and oil & gas industries, as well as a comprehensive package of seals, bearings, and associated solutions for hydropower installations and industrial plants worldwide. While this support is based primarily on equipment sold and designed by Wärtsilä, Wärtsilä Services has the capability to retrofit and service equipment by other brands as well, thereby offering customers the most comprehensive support.

A comprehensive knowledge of the customer’s business and operational challenges, combined with technical expertise, forms the basis for being able to offer different levels of support:

  • Spare parts for equipment, with an emphasis on excellent delivery performance and the availability of a broad range of parts
  • Full maintenance and performance monitoring, utilising both spare parts and services (field services, condition based maintenance, dynamic maintenance planning)
  • Optimising customers’ businesses via analytics, proactive recommendations, efficiency improvements (e.g. fuel cost savings), and shared performance targets for the operation and maintenance of their equipment
  • Guarantees of operational reliability, performance and uptime of customer assets.

Areas of expertise include:

Engine services
