The demand for Wärtsilä’s services and solutions in 2019 is expected to be in line with the previous year. Demand by business area is anticipated to be as follows:
- Solid in Wärtsilä Energy Business. The global shift towards renewable energy sources and increasing electricity demand in the emerging markets create a need for distributed and flexible power capacity.
- Solid in Wärtsilä Marine Business. Wärtsilä’s demand outlook is supported by its extensive product and service offering and broad segment exposure, which compensates for the slow pace of recovery in overall vessel contracting.
Wärtsilä’s current order book for 2019 deliveries is EUR 3,696 million (3,207). Deliveries are expected to be concentrated to the latter part of the year.
