Wärtsilä and Flender (Siemens AG, Mechanical Drives) have reached an agreement regarding Wärtsilä’s marine gear box portfolio. With immediate effect, the assembly and testing of the gear boxes will be moved to the Siemens Mechanical Drives facilities in Voerde, Germany.

By taking advantage of synergies with processes developed at the Siemens plant, the new arrangement aims to secure the quality and delivery punctuality of the Wärtsilä gear boxes. The design and technical specifications, as well as the delivery arrangements, project management, and interfacing with shipyards and owners will continue to be Wärtsilä’s responsibility.

The gear box is a vital link between a ship’s main propulsion engine and the controllable pitch propeller and several configurations and sizes are offered according to the actual vessel requirements.

“We are pleased to be cooperating with Wärtsilä in the production of their marine gear boxes. The products are excellent and they fit well with our manufacturing programme at this facility,” says Felix Henseler, Executive Vice President, Applications, Siemens Mechanical Drives.
