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.
