In October, Wärtsilä announced the decision to reorganise into two business areas, Wärtsilä Marine Business and Wärtsilä Energy Business, covering both new sales and services for the respective markets. With this change, Wärtsilä aims to deliver increased value to its customers by better serving their needs throughout the full lifecycle. Forming two business areas will enable Wärtsilä to accelerate growth and the implementation of its Smart Marine and Smart Energy strategies. It also allows Wärtsilä to more effectively serve its customers with increased flexibility and faster response times. The new organisational structure will be operational as of 1 January 2019.
