Wärtsilä announced that its new workshop in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, now has a number of major projects under way or just being undertaken, including the full overhaul of 11 Wärtsilä engines supplied earlier to a utility in China.

Wärtsilä repurchased the 11 engines together with related equipment that had originally been delivered in 1995 to a power plant in China.

The 12-cylinder Wärtsilä 46 engines in Vee configuration, each with an output of 10 MW, had each accumulated some 40 000 running hours. When completed, the engines will be utilized for either marine or power plant applications complete with warranty.
