Trident, a subsidiary of Wärtsilä, is strengthening its underwater-related servicing capabilities with the opening of a new diving center facility in Fujairah, United Arab Emirates. 

This expansion into a major global shipping region will enhance Wärtsilä’s ability to serve its  customers with underwater repairs, refurbishments and maintenance. The UAE center became fully operational in February 2019.

Wärtsilä already has strong underwater servicing capabilities in Europe through its acquisition of the Trident Group in February 2018, and its subsequent acquisition of the Spanish underwater services company Burriel Navarro later that year. This latest expansion into the Middle East shipping region extends the company’s global footprint in this specialist field.
