Wärtsilä has signed a five-year maintenance agreement with Bonny Gas Transport Limited (BGT) to monitor and service the engines on board the BGT's six new LNG carriers.

The Nigerian gas transportation company is a subsidiary of Nigeria LNG Limited which exports most of its cargo to the European Asian markets.

The six LNG carriers are equipped with five Wärtsilä 50DF engines each and operate primarily on gas.

Simon Auseth, general manager business development, marine agreements, at Wärtsilä, said: "We are very excited about this opportunity to provide superior maintenance services to Bonny Gas Transport.”

He added: “In addition to increasing the engine uptime, Bonny Gas Transport wanted to improve maintenance planning and operative cost control and this is something Wärtsilä can offer.”

Wärtsilä's dynamic maintenance planning (DMP) concept will utilise condition based monitoring (CBM) to determine the actual engine maintenance needs. BGT will also have around the clock access to online operational and technical support.

The agreement is the first to apply Wärtsilä's data acquisition system, which aims to help customers optimise their operations and seize the opportunities that digitalisation offers.

It provides real-time access and analysis of data with one system to enable automated measuring and power availability.

Mr Auseth concluded: “With the continuous remote monitoring of the equipment and the dynamic maintenance planning concept, we can ensure optimal availability while minimising the risk of disruptions to operations.”
