Wärtsilä, GasLog Ink LNG Carriers’ Maintenance Deal

Finnish technology group Wärtsilä has signed a maintenance agreement with Monaco-based GasLog LNG Services, covering eight LNG carriers operating on Wärtsilä dual-fuel engines.

The agreement, effective from October 1, 2017, consists of Dynamic Maintenance Planning (DMP), technical support, secured availability of spare parts and specialized technical personnel around the clock as well as constant performance monitoring.

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, according to Wärtsilä.

“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. Instead of concentrating on the theoretical lifetime of engine components, we monitor their actual condition,” Yiannis Christopoulos, Director Service Unit Greece-Cyprus & Managing Director of Wärtsilä Greece, explained.

“By applying real-time installation data we can strive for optimum lifecycle utilisation of the entire installation,” Christopoulos added.

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

GasLog’s fleet consists of 27 LNG carriers, 22 of which are in operation and 5 on order, scheduled for delivery within the next two years.
