Wärtsilä, GasLog Sign Maintenance Agreement

20 October 2017

Wärtsilä has signed a maintenance agreement with Monaco-based GasLog LNG Services, covering eight liquefied natural gas (LNG) carriers operating on Wärtsilä dual-fuel engines.

The goal of the agreement is to ensure the certainty and predictability of fleet operations by engaging Wärtsilä in the maintenance and optimisation of the vessels’ engines.

“By analyzing the operating conditions of the ship engines and streamlining maintenance accordingly, the operative efficiency of GasLog’s vessels is optimized at all times,” Said Yiannis Christopoulos, director, Service Unit Greece-Cyprus and managing director of Wärtsilä Greece. “Instead of concentrating on the theoretical lifetime of engine components, we monitor their actual condition. By applying real-time installation data we can strive for optimum lifecycle utilisation of the entire installation. Overall, I’m very pleased to see how we are extending the close cooperation between our companies through another long-term partnership agreement.” 

The agreement consists of dynamic maintenance planning (DMP), technical support, secured availability of spare parts and specialised technical personnel around the clock as well as constant performance monitoring. Wärtsilä said its digital services enable remote troubleshooting and tuning of engines as well as software updates. Additionally, continuous collection of performance data allows for detailed analysis which is reported to GasLog on a regular basis.

The agreement covers eight LNG carriers: four new LNG carriers and a renewal of services for an additional four LNG carriers. The new agreement expands the cooperation between Wärtsilä and Gaslog; the two companies have an existing maintenance agreement in force, signed in 2014, which covers seven more vessels.
