Wärtsilä of Finland signed a ten-year maintenance agreement with MOL LNG Transport Europe, a unit of the Japanese MOL Group, for two LNG carriers. 

The agreement, increases the predictability of the vessels’ operations, enhances safety and reduces operational costs, Wärtsilä said in its statement, adding that the service agreement includes all scheduled engine maintenance activities, workshop services and online remote support.

The vessels covered by the agreement, LNG carriers Spirit of Hela and Gigira Laitebo, are equipped with four Wärtsilä 50DF dual-fuel engines each.

With Wärtsilä’s maintenance solution, maintenance activities for the two vessels’ engines can be planned based on actual engine condition rather than following a strict calendar-based schedule.

The maintenance solution controls and extends the engine maintenance intervals.
