Wärtsilä has inaugurated its new workshop and Land & Sea Academy training facilities in Jakarta, Indonesia.
The facilities will reportedly assist and optimise the operations of the company’s energy and maritime sector clients, as well as accelerate their decarbonisation path.
Indonesia’s energy system is fast transforming to allow more flexible and renewable power generation, in response to the urgent need to triple worldwide renewable deployment to fulfil climate targets.
Erwin Vanderkerff, Managing Director and President, Wärtsilä Indonesia, said: “The renewal of the workshop and training facilities is a concrete proof-point of our strong, long-term commitment to support our customers in Indonesia.
“The workshop is equipped with modern tools and machinery operated by skilled personnel which enable all types of maintenance and repair work, as well as remanufacturing and upgrades.”
Vanderkerff added: “The Wärtsilä Land & Sea Academy provides high-quality training solutions covering all aspects of managing and operating installations, including maintenance, safety, reliability and performance, and will help customers to master sophisticated Wärtsilä technologies and equipment.
“With this investment, we will further develop our local capabilities to provide the best services to our energy and marine customers and partners both in Indonesia and elsewhere in Southeast Asia.”
Frederic Carron, Vice President, Middle East & Asia, Wärtsilä Energy, stated: “We are proud to closely collaborate with our stakeholders in Indonesia to ensure availability of local expertise and knowledge.
“Through our commitment and investments, we can help provide reliable and affordable power generation to support economic growth and accelerate decarbonisation in Indonesia.”
