Wärtsilä Corp has signed a multi-year maintenance agreement for seven LNG carriers owned by GasLog LNG Services.

The agreement was signed in the first quarter of 2015 and will run for three to five years. The 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 also covered by the agreement.

Wärtsilä will analyse date from the vessels, each with cargo capacity of 155,000m3 and provide information on the condition of equipment. Data collected via satellite will allow GasLog to maximise intervals between maintenance periods, streamline logistics for spare part deliveries and ensure that main generating engines are operating optimally. This will assist GasLog in reducing costs, lowering fuel consumption and ensuring minimal emissions.

Miltos Zisis, fleet manager, GasLog said: "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."
Yiannis Christopoulos, service unit director Greece and Cyprus, Wärtsilä added: "By working closely together we can fully utilise the benefits that increased online services will bring to the optimisation of marine maintenance services. For example, with remote online support, the crew can keep the operational performance of the engines at optimal levels, thus increasing the efficiency of these vessels, no matter where in the world they are operating."
