Finland's Wärtsilä has signed a manufacturing deal with Chinese Jiujiang Precision Measuring Technology Research Institute – a subsidiary of China State Shipbuilding Corporation (CSCC). The deal includes a licensing agreement for CSSC to manufacture Wärtsilä's ballast water management system.

Wärtsilä thus retains its ownership of the ballast water management system, Aquarius Electro-Chlorination (EC), and the deal gives the company access to a key market for the systems. CSSC is one of the world's largest shipbuilding groups, and according to Wärtsilä, CSSC will have a significant need for the company's ballast water systems.
