Wilhelmsen Ship Management has signed a five-year agreement with Wärtsilä covering the maintenance of exhaust gas cleaning systems installed on three vessels.

All three vessels have a 25MW Wärtsilä hybrid scrubber system. The services covered under the agreement, signed in December 2017, include annual audits and safety tests to ensure ongoing Marpol compliance, calibration of the continuous emission monitoring system and water monitoring system as well as operational training courses for the vessels’ crew.

“Operating sustainably and maintaining Marpol compliance is absolutely crucial,” said Jon Helge Ulstein, vessel manager, Wilhelmsen Ship Management. “This agreement ensures that we are doing it in a correct and documented way to fulfill authorities’ requirements. Additionally, it allows us long-term cost predictability and to channel more focus into critical ship management operations.”

Glenn Holid, sales manager at Wärtsilä Moss, added: “Wärtsilä wants to build awareness of sustainability and provide solutions that help customers reduce or eliminate emissions. This agreement does exactly that by ensuring that the vessels comply with the strict sulphur limits set by IMO’s standards.”

Wilhelmsen Ship Management is one of the world’s largest third-party ship managers with a portfolio of more than 450 vessels and 9,200 active seafarers. The Norwegian company manages its portfolio from five offices worldwide and has a crewing network of 18 manning offices in 12 countries.
