Wärtsilä says that demand for predictive analytics and advisory services is increasing. By analyzing the data collected from GasLog’s vessels, Wärtsilä is able to provide valuable information regarding the condition of the equipment, enabling GasLog to optimize maintenance and asset performance.
Utilization of the data collected via satellite allows GasLog to maximise intervals between maintenance periods, streamline logistics for spare part deliveries and ensure that main generating engines are operating optimally, lowering operating costs and minimizing fuel consumption. This will help GasLog in ensure minimal emissions, lowering the environmental impact of its ships.
The services covered by the agreement include proactive condition based maintenance, maintenance management services, performance monitoring and remote online support that enhances the safe and reliable operation of GasLog’s vessels. Workshop services for all 28 Wärtsilä 50DF dual-fuel engines in the GasLog fleet are also part of the packagel.
“We have been extremely pleased with Wärtsilä’s cooperation and are happy to expand the agreement to cover these LNG vessels,” says GasLog fleet manager Miltos Zisis. “We are certain that both GasLog and our customers can benefit from optimized availability, increased lifecycle efficiency and in turn, reduced operating costs. We believe that Wärtsilä’s technology, global presence and local support will help us to achieve these efficiencies and will ensure that we can continue to meet our aim of first class customer-service in the chartering of GasLog Vessels.”
“We are proud to deepen our cooperation with GasLog even further. By working closely together we can fully utilize the benefits that increased online services will bring to the optimization of marine maintenance services. For example, with remote online support, the crew can keep the operational performance of the engines at optimal levels, thus increasing the efficiency of these vessels, no matter where in the world they are operating,” says Yiannis Christopoulos, Wärtsilä’s Service Unit Director, Greece and Cyprus
