Wärtsilä strengthens its presence in Ukraine – a new office to serve customers
Wärtsilä has opened a new office in Odessa, Ukraine, to meet the increased demand for land- and ship-based power plant installations from customers based across Ukraine. The new office is manned by eight people. From its Odessa office Wärtsilä will look to expand its sales and services towards Crimea, Mariupol and Kiev.
Anatoliy Porkunov, Managing Director, Wärtsilä Ukraine, said: “Ukraine is an important region for Wärtsilä. It has vast potential for us. The new facility provides us with presence in a geographically important area and we can be closer to our customers, responding more quickly to their requirements. Until now, Wärtsilä’s Ukrainian customers were served from Wärtsilä in Estonia. Our Ukrainian customers are happy to have a local presence with local man-power.”
Odessa - hub of many shipping companies
Odessa, the Ukraine’s major seaport, on the edge of the Black Sea, is home to a number of state- and privately-owned shipping companies. Wärtsilä also sees potential to develop its land-based power plant business.
