DNV Grants Quality Certificate To Wartsila

The international classification and certification society Det norske Veritas has granted Wartsila Diesel's Vasa factory ISO 9001 certification in recognition of the effectiveness of the factory's quality system.

The ISO 9001 quality system covers Wartsila Diesel operations from marketing to after sales service.

It is expected to guarantee the competitive efficiency of Wartsila Diesel's Vasa engines on the international market.

ISO 9001 is an international quality standard known widely on the international market. The certificate now granted Wartsila Diesel is a result of a concerted effort to improve quality at the company's Vasa unit. The entire personnel was involved in the effort. A quality development team was set up to support and coordinate overall quality development and has also created the means for monitoring, controlling and maintaining the factory's quality system in the future.

Wartsila Diesel Group is one of the world's leading suppliers of medium- speed engines for marine and power plant installations. Wartsila Diesel's Vasa factory is the design and development center for the company's Vasa 22, 32 and 46 engines.
