Wärtsilä Partners with COSCO on Exhaust Tech


Wärtsilä, a provider of technological solutions, has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with COSCO Shipping Heavy Industry to support the growth of its exhaust gas cleaning systems (EGCS).

According to a statement, the two companies’ agreement – signed in June 2019 – covers the development of local production resources and will extend the use of Wärtsilä’s EGCS across China.

With both organizations combining their experience and expertise, it is expected that a “one-stop-shopping” service for exhaust gas cleaning systems will be established, offering customers “seamless deliveries and installation for both newbuild and retrofit scrubber projects”.

Zhao Zengshan, Vice President of COSCO Shipping Heavy Industry, also commented: “The CHI Group intends to expand its manufacturing portfolio of marine equipment.

“The Wärtsilä technology in marine scrubber systems is world-class, and we look forward to a successful cooperation between our two companies.”

In addition to the EGCS, Wärtsilä also provides assistance from the initial planning stage to post-installation service agreements.
