Finnish technology group Wärtsilä has signed long-term service agreements for four Japanese-owned LNG carriers.
Wärtsilä said that two of the vessels were owned by a joint venture between Mitsui O.S.K. Lines (MOL) and JERA while the other two are owned by a joint venture between Nippon Yusen Kabushiki Kaisha (NYK) and JERA.
The solutions covers a range of services, including scheduled maintenance parts for the equipment covered, all workshop services, all field servicing for piston related maintenance, turbocharger maintenance, condition-based maintenance (CBM) reporting, remote operational support (ROS) from Wärtsilä’s expertise centers, and dynamic maintenance planning.
It is worth noting that all four vessels are powered by Wärtsilä 50DF dual-fuel engines.
Jörgen Naaijer, general manager of marine agreement sales of Wärtsilä Marine, said: “These agreements have been customized to address our customers’ long term needs and business objectives.
“They bring measurable and guaranteed lifecycle cost benefits to the owners in terms of reliability, operational efficiency, and accurate maintenance planning based on the true condition of the equipment, which minimizes the risk of unexpected downtime.“
