In 1938 the diesel engine era began when Wärtsilä signed a licence agreement with Friedrich Krupp Germania Werft AG in Germany. The first diesel engine was produced in Turku, Finland in November 1942. During the following decades more focus was put on manufacturing diesel and gas engines with the acquisitions of the Swedish firm NOHAB in 1978, the French Société Alsacienne de Constructions Mécaniques (SACM), and the Dutch Stork-Werkspoor in 1989.

In 1997 Wärtsilä absorbed the diesel motor producing New Sulzer Diesel (NSD), having been created by Sulzer in 1990.

As former Sulzer licensor we have a lot of knowledge about Wärtsila engine spare parts.

The Wärtsila RT-flex96C is a two stroke turbocharged low-speed diesel engine designed by the Finnish manufacturer Wärtsila. It is designed for large container ships that run on heavy fuel oil. It's largest 14-cylinder verion is 13.5 metres high, 26.59 m long, weighs over 2.300 tons, and produces 80,080 kW (107.390 hp) The engine is the largest reciprocating engine in the world.

The 14-cylinder version first entered commercial service in September 2006. The design is similar to the older RTA96C engine where Damen Schelde Marine Services already build up a large database of knowledge from wear and tear parts. The biggest differente between the RTA96 and RT-flex96 is the common rail technology instead of traditional camshaft, chain, gear, fuel pump and hydraulic actuator). This common rail technology provides maximum performance, reduces fuel consumption and emits less emission.

Our programm contains a big variety of wear and tear parts such as cylinder liner, piston rings, bolts, and consumables such as gaskets, o-rings, d-rings and service kits.
