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 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.
