IN BRIEF - Wärtsilä completes Russian market exit

Friday, July 22, 2022

Today, Wärtsilä announces that it has completed its orderly exit from the Russian market following its announcement of scaling down activities in April 2022. All adjustments and closures of Wärtsilä’s operations were completed in accordance with local regulations. Throughout the various processes, Wärtsilä’s priority has been ensuring the safety and wellbeing of employees.

Wärtsilä continues to strongly condemn Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. Human rights, safety and prosperity are very important for Wärtsilä. The company has fully committed to complying with all trade sanctions applicable to its operations from the beginning of the war, and it has now ceased all business operations in Russia across all business units.

As part of the exit, the Wärtsilä Digital Technologies (WDT) office in Saint Petersburg has been closed. In accordance with local regulations, a reduced team will conduct final procedures to complete the closure, however all operations have ceased. Wärtsilä has built new R&D capabilities outside of Russia to secure the uninterrupted delivery of customer commitments.

In May/June, Wärtsilä signed agreements to sell the Transas Navigator business and Wärtsilä Vostok LLC to the local management of the companies. Transas Navigator will operate as an independent company and will continue to serve its local customers. Wärtsilä does not provide or deliver any services or parts to the Transas Navigator business following the divestment.

Other Media | Industrias Pesqueras: The Spanish fleet resists: it reduces catches and floats, but increases the value of its production by 10%

Friday, July 22, 2022

Catches are down, the number of active vessels and the direct employment they generate are down. However, and despite all the challenges faced, the Spanish fleet improves in the valorization of its production. This follows from the latest "Report on the Spanish Fishing Sector", published by Cepesca with the aim of analyzing the evolution of the industry during the 2020-2021 period. The document, which collects the statistics of a period inevitably conditioned by the pandemic, reflects the resistance and adaptability of Spanish fishing.
