Technology group Wärtsilä has secured long-term service agreements for four LNG carriers owned by two Japanese joint ventures.

Booked by Wärtsilä in March 2019, the orders are for two carriers owned by the MOL and JERA JV, and for two carriers owned by a joint-venture between Nippon Yusen Kabushiki Kaisha (NYK) and JERA.

The solutions cover a range of services, including scheduled maintenance parts for the equipment covered, all workshop services, all field servicing for piston related maintenance, turbocharger maintenance, condition-based maintenance (CBM) reporting, remote operational support (ROS) from Wärtsilä’s expertise centers, and dynamic maintenance planning. All four vessels are powered by Wärtsilä 50DF dual-fuel engines.

“These agreements have been customized to address our customers’ long term needs and business objectives,” Jörgen Naaijer, General Manager, Marine Agreement Sales, Wärtsilä Marine, commented.

“They bring measurable and guaranteed lifecycle cost benefits to the owners in terms of reliability, operational efficiency, and accurate maintenance planning based on the true condition of the equipment, which minimizes the risk of unexpected downtime.”
