Wärtsilä Italia S.p.A. and Meloni Heavy Industries S.p.A. have finalized an agreement concerning the manufacturing of welded parts. By signing this agreement Wärtsilä transfers its entire component factory business in Italy including assets and resources to Meloni on January 1, 2002. The transfer of about 115 skilled operators to Meloni will ensure the manufacturing of welded structures and components, enabling the business to continue uninterrupted in both companies.
