This new version of the Wärtsilä 20 engine is being developed specifically for shunter locomotives. The engines will be manufactured in Penza, Russia, through a joint venture between Wärtsilä and Transmashholding. Production is planned to start in 2012.

Wärtsilä has signed a joint venture agreement with the Russian company Transmashholding (TMH) to manufacture modern and multipurpose diesel engines in Russia. The engines, including a new and technically advanced version of the Wärtsilä 20 engine, will be used in shunter locomotives and for various marine and power applications.
