GE scores services contract for TMS LNG fleet

Corcovado LNG

Greece-based ship operator TMS Cardiff Gas has signed a service agreement with GE’s Marine Solutions that will see the latter undertaking the support and maintenance of four TMS LNG vessels.

The contract will last for 10 years and includes the Corcovado, Kita, Palu and Yari LNG tankers.

GE said in a statement it would provide maintenance services to TMS fleet’s electric propulsion system, including providing parts to the propulsion motors, medium-voltage drives, generators and switchboard.

It will also upgrade the vessels’ propulsion automation systems to enhance their remote and diagnostic capabilities.

In the liquefied natural gas carrier market, vessel availability and reliability are of paramount importance. Long-term service agreements coupled with the latest remote and diagnostic capabilities are key to optimizing vessel performances, GE noted in the statement.

The four vessels are equipped with electric propulsion system provided by GE.

The service agreement will also provide training for personnel operating its equipment.

Moreover, the TMS’ fleet will be installed with a Visor remote monitoring system, which can provide operators with vessel health status and help identify potential issues that will affect the ability to provide the diagnostic service.

This digital software is fundamental to assist GE’s field service engineers to quickly assess the potential root cause of the failure and recovery paths options to execute fast and effective service during unplanned downtime.
