Wärtsilä to Take Care of GasLog LNG Carriers

Finnish engineering company Wärtsilä has signed a Maintenance Agreement with the GasLog LNG Services Limited covering GasLog’s seven 155,000 cbm LNG carriers for the next 3 to 5 years.

The range of services offered to GasLog under this agreement includes proactive condition based maintenance, maintenance management services, performance monitoring and remote online support. Workshop services for all 28 Wärtsilä 50DF dual-fuel engines are covered by the agreement as well.

By analysing the data collected from GasLog’s vessels, Wärtsilä will be able to provide information regarding the condition of the equipment, which enables GasLog to optimise maintenance and asset performance.

Utilisation of the data collected via satellite allows GasLog to maximise intervals between maintenance periods, streamline logistics for spare part deliveries and ensure that main generating engines are operating optimally thereby lowering operating costs and minimising fuel consumption, Wärtsilä says.

“We have been extremely pleased with Wärtsilä’s co-operation and are happy to expand the agreement to cover these LNG vessels. We are certain that both GasLog and our customers can benefit from optimised availability, increased lifecycle efficiency and in turn, reduced operating costs. We believe that Wärtsilä’s technology, global presence and local support will help us to achieve these efficiencies and will ensure that we can continue to meet our aim of first class customer-service in the chartering of GasLog Vessels,” said Miltos Zisis, Fleet Manager from GasLog.
