Wärtsilä’s chief financial officer has said that GE’s industrial gas engine business, Jenbacher, would be a good fit for his company. Wärtsilä is one of a number of companies that made a bid for Jenbacher in April, following GE’s decision to try to offload the company and raise some cash. Jenbacher’s engines are smaller than those manufactured by Wärtsilä, which would give Wärtsilä a wider product range while keeping it in the smaller power generation market in which the company has excelled in recent years, and which complements renewable energies.
