The acquisition of Hamworthy is a major step in Wärtsilä's strategy to strengthen its position as a total solutions provider.
“This move is fully in line with our strategy,” said Jaakko Eskola, group vice president, Wärtsilä Ship Power. “Both companies are excited by the challenges and opportunities in the rapidly evolving offshore, marine gas applications, as well as environmental solutions markets. We have the broadest range of solutions and services in the industry, and by adding Hamworthy’s strengths to our own, we can serve our customers even better.”
“We are delighted to be joining Wärtsilä, an acknowledged leader in providing technologically advanced solutions for customers around the world. The Hamworthy strengths will be gradually and systematically integrated with those of Wärtsilä, with the end result that the customer's route to greater profitability and easier compliance will be shortened,” said Joe Oatley, Hamworthy CEO.
