Wärtsilä has increased its range of engineering services available in Italy with the opening of a new workshop in Taranto, a commercial and military hub in the Puglia region of Southern Italy. Relocation to the new, larger facility provides a more suitable base from which to develop its offering in the region.

"The new 700 m2 workshop with its five tonnes lifting capacity, is ready to support a variety of customers, and is particularly oriented towards serving bio fuel power plant installations in the Southern and Eastern part of Italy as well as the Taranto Italian Naval Base," said Guido Barbazza, Director, Field Service Workshops, Wärtsilä Services.

The new facility opened at the end of January with a 12 person team capable of providing a wide range of engine components overhauling, re-machining and honing services.
