OCTOBER 20, 2017 — Wärtsilä has signed a maintenance agreement with Monaco based GasLog LNG Services, covering eight LNG carriers with Wärtsilä dual fuel engines.
The agreement covers Dynamic Maintenance Planning (DMP), technical support and secured availability of spare parts and specialized technical personnel around the clock along with constant performance monitoring.
Wärtsilä’s digital services enable remote troubleshooting and tuning of engines as well as software updates. Additionally, continuous collection of performance data allows for detailed analysis which is reported to GasLog on a regular basis.
The agreement covers eight LNG carriers: four new LNG carriers and a renewal of services for an additional four LNG carriers.
The new agreement expands the cooperation between Wärtsilä and Gaslog; the two companies have an existing maintenance agreement in force, signed in 2014, which covers seven more vessels.
“By analyzing the operating conditions of the ship engines and streamlining maintenance accordingly, the operative efficiency of GasLog’s vessels is optimized at all times,” says Yiannis Christopoulos, Director Service Unit Greece-Cyprus & Managing Director of Wärtsilä Greece. “Instead of concentrating on the theoretical lifetime of engine components, we monitor their actual condition. By applying real-time installation data we can strive for optimum lifecycle utilization of the entire installation.”
