Finnish engineering company Wärtsilä has inked a ten-year maintenance agreement with MOL LNG Transport Europe, an affiliate of Japanese shipping company Mitsui O.S.K. Lines (MOL Group), which covers two liquefied natural gas (LNG) carriers.

Built in South Korea in 2010, the two 177,400 cbm ships, Spirit of Hela and Gigira Laitebo, are equipped with four Wärtsilä 50DF dual-fuel engines each.

The service agreement includes scheduled engine maintenance activities, workshop services and online remote support.

Under the agreement, Wärtsilä will provide the Condition Based Maintenance (CBM) solution. With CBM, maintenance activities for the two vessels’ engines can be planned based on actual engine condition rather than following a strict calendar-based schedule, according to Wärtsilä.

“The CBM solution controls and extends the engine maintenance intervals, reducing operational costs and downtime. Wärtsilä’s CBM monitoring system continuously collects data about the engines’ operating parameters and transmits the information in real time to a Wärtsilä service centre for technical expert analysis,” Wärtsilä said.

Located in London, MOL LNG Transport Europe manages 15 LNG carriers for MOL and joint venture owners.
