A service agreement has been signed by Wärtsilä and PGS Geophysical AS to make Wärtsilä the favoured supplier of equipment for PGS’s fleet.

The three-year agreement means that Wärtsilä will take care of the maintenance of engines and propulsion systems on board PGS's fleet of 8 seismic vessels, securing maximum uptime as well as safe and economic operations.

"We are very proud to announce this new cooperation that makes Wärtsilä the preferred partner for PGS. Ensuring the availability and reliability of a large, globally operating fleet requires a wide service network, which we are able to offer,” said Hans Petter Nesse, director of service unit Norway in Wärtsilä Services.

He added: “With Wärtsilä's advisory service and support, PGS is able to concentrate on what they specialize in - offering seismic services for their customers.”

In the first phase of the contract Wärtsilä will optimise the operations and maintenance of the Wärtsilä engines and propulsion systems installed on board PGS's vessels. This allows PGS to optimise its operational costs over the lifecycle of the vessels.

In the second phase of the contract Wärtsilä and PGS will identify how PGS can utilise Wärtsilä's digital solutions to further secure maritime uptime and minimise risk and costs. 

Håkon Matheson. global sourcing manager at PGS Geophysical AS, concluded: "Marine geophysics is a highly specialised and technology-driven area, and the reliability and safety of our fleet is essential, as it ensures that we can deliver these services, as promised, to our customers.

We are confident that we in turn can rely on the maritime solutions and expertise of Wärtsilä. We are looking forward to the coming years of fruitful cooperation.”
