"Despite the continuing uncertainty in the global economy and the tough market conditions, both our order intake and net sales developed well. In the third quarter they were up by 14% and 28% respectively. Ship Power's year-on-year performance is strong, and has been supported by both an active offshore sector and the Hamworthy acquisition. Among the highlights are a major engine and propulsion equipment order for six Brazilian drillships from Jurong Shipyard Pte Ltd, and three platform supply vessel related orders from Statoil, as well as the first four ballast water management system orders. Wärtsilä again received a record power plant order, this time for an approximately 600 MW power plant to be constructed in Jordan. It will be the world's largest tri-fuel power plant. I am also happy to note that the growth trend for Services continues, regardless of the difficult market environment that many of our marine service customers are experiencing.

We believe that net sales will grow this year by around 10-15%, which is more than originally estimated. Our profitability now stands at 10.3% and we believe it will improve in the fourth quarter. As a result, we expect profitability for the full year to be 10.5-11%."

1 EBITA is shown excluding non-recurring items of EUR 16 million (17) and intangible asset amortisation related to acquisitions of EUR 26 million (12) during the review period January-September 2012. During the third quarter, non-recurring items amounted to EUR 3 million (6) and intangible asset amortisation related to acquisitions to EUR 16 million (9).

2 EBIT is shown excluding non-recurring items.


The power generation market is expected to remain active during the remainder of 2012. Ordering activity continues to be focused on emerging markets, which continue to invest in new power generation capacity. In the OECD countries, there is still pent-up power sector demand, mainly driven by CO2 neutral generation and the ramp down of older, mainly coal-based generation. Despite the continuing interest for new power generation investments, the macro economic uncertainty may delay investment decisions.

Robust contracting activity, in line with the activity levels seen during 2011 and so far in 2012, is expected for the offshore, gas carrier, and other specialised vessel markets. The outlook for overall vessel contracting activity during 2012 is slightly negative, with full year contracting expected to be less than during 2011. The decrease is largely driven by the low contracting levels in the traditional merchant segments. Interesting opportunities are being seen in the following areas: efficiency improvement, gas as a fuel, and environmental solutions. These are now central issues in many newbuilding discussions and are expected to grow in importance going forward.

The outlook for the overall service market is stable despite the continued uncertainty in the global economy.The outlook for service activities in the merchant segment remains challenging, while the outlook for offshore remains promising. Activity in the other marine markets is expected to be stable. Market conditions for power plants related services are expected to remain on a good level.


Wärtsilä expects its net sales for 2012 to grow by 10-15% (previously 5-10%) and its operational profitability (EBIT% before non-recurring items) to be 10.5-11% (previously 10-11%).
