Wartsila in maintenance deal for eight LNGCs running on dual-fuel engines

20 Oct 2017 11:27 GMT

Tie-up is in addition to the previous agreement with Gaslog, which covers seven other vessels.



Wartsila has signed a maintenance agreement with GasLog LNG Services, covering eight LNG carriers operating on the Finnish firm's dual-fuel engines.

The agreement, effective on October 1, 2017, consists of dynamic maintenance planning (DMP), technical support, secured availability of spare parts and specialised technical personnel around the clock as well as constant performance monitoring.

Wartsila'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 tie-up expands the cooperation between Wartsila and Gaslog: the two companies have an existing maintenance agreement in force, signed in 2014, which covers seven more vessels.

Yiannis Christopoulos, Director Service Unit Greece-Cyprus & Managing Director of Wartsila Greece, explained: "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. 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 utilisation of the entire installation."

"Wartsila is a critical contributor to our effort to secure long-term reliability and efficiency of our vessels' operations and to control and maintain respective costs in order to be competitive in the LNG market. We believe that both aspects are addressed in this agreement and we hope to continue improving our co-operation further," remarked Theofanis Sallis, General Manager Operations at GasLog LNG Services.

Monaco-based GasLog is an owner, operator and manager of LNG carriers. The company's fleet consists of 27 LNG carriers, 22 of which are in operation while five are on order and are slated for delivery within the next two years.
