The technology group Wärtsilä signed a maintenance agreement with the Athens based ship management company TMS Cardiff Gas, for four TDFE LNG carriers.
Under the agreement, Wärtsilä ensures the maintenance predictability of the operation of four TFDE LNG Carriers in TMS Cardiff Gas’ fleet to achieve optimal fleet operations, resulting in reduced fuel costs and emissions, Wärtsilä said in a statement.
The maintenance agreement, signed in December 2017, advances the performance monitoring of TMS Cardiff Gas’ vessels. The agreement is an expansion of the earlier technical management deal signed between Wärtsilä and TMS Cardiff Gas in 2014.
With the new agreement, the scope of Wärtsilä’s services include, among others, Eniram’s data collection platform and advanced data analytics that enables TMS Cardiff Gas to save costs and maximize overall profitability while cutting its emissions.
Wärtsilä said it is engaged in the maintenance and optimization of vessels’ engines, allowing the customer to focus on its core business. Wärtsilä provides all necessary spare parts for the maintenance of the vessels as well as field service resources for scheduled maintenance that has been planned according to the actual running hours of the engines.
