Wärtsilä and Wagenborg Shipping B.V. have signed a six-year Maintenance Agreement for fifteen of Wagenborg’s dry cargo carriers. Under the agreement Wärtsilä will provide all maintenance planning and services for the installed engines and propulsion systems with fixed price.
“One important result of this contract is that it facilitates more efficient maintenance. Our goal is to improve technical engine performance and optimise maintenance planning. The contract also allows us to keep our operational costs more controllable; it was very important for us to have unscheduled maintenance included in the scope of the contract,” said Theo Klimp, Fleet Director at Wagenborg Shipping.
Under the agreements made, Wagenborg Shipping B.V. will use Wärtsilä’s Remote Condition Monitoring System.
The maintenance concept covers not only the maintenance of the Wärtsilä 46F engines, but also the controllable pitch propellers, bow thrusters and shaft seals.
