Wärtsilä Switzerland Ltd inform that it has signed a licence agreement for the manufacture and sales of Wärtsilä 2-stroke marine engines by China-based Jangsu Antai Power Machinery Co. Ltd. (JAD) which is the former large horse-power division of Wuxi Diesel Engine Plant).

Under the terms of this agreement, JAD will be able to manufacture and sell the entire portfolio of Wärtsilä 2-stroke engines.

Jangsu Antai Power has a well-deserved reputation for quality, and together we can serve our customers in China with faster delivery of Wärtsilä engines featuring the very latest technology," says Martin Wernli, Vice President, 2-stroke, Wärtsilä Ship Power and Managing Director of Wärtsilä in Switzerland.
