Wartsila, Golar LNG sign fleet maintenance deal

Wärtsilä said it has signed a 5-year technical management agreement with Golar Management Oslo for delivery of services to Golar LNG.

The service agreement includes remote monitoring of engines, maintenance planning, advisory services, and guaranteed availability of personnel as well as spare parts, Wärtsilä said in a statement.

Golar LNG operates a fleet of 13 vessels, dedicated to both LNG transportation and midstream floating solutions. The company’s LNG carriers and FSRU’s are all equipped with Wärtsilä engines, the number of engines totaling at 52.

In addition to planning and consultation services, the deal includes a condition-based maintenance (CBM) system that supports in optimizing the performance of the installed equipment. The system allows Wärtsilä’s specialists to monitor and analyse various parameters, enabling Wärtsilä to plan and perform the maintenance activities needed in relation to the engines’ lifecycle and condition. This enables predictive maintenance while maximising uptime and reducing operating costs, the statement said.

In addition, the dedicated Contract Manager offers technical advice and consultation as well as maintenance planning, increasing the predictability of maintenance and service needs. The CBM system completes the offering by ensuring the optimal and cost-effective use of engines, it added.
