Wärtsilä to maintain Japanese LNG carriers
The technology group Wärtsilä has signed a long-term contract to supply Japanese shipowner, Tokyo LNG Tanker, with its optimised maintenance lifecycle solution.
The agreement, the first of its kind between Wärtsilä and a fully owned Japanese company, sees the technology group support Tokyo LNG Tanker in a range of maintenance needs for three 165,000m³ LNG carriers powered by Wärtsilä 50DF dual-fuel engines.
The optimised, condition-based maintenance provided by Wärtsilä will enable predictive assessments of servicing needs based on actual component performance, rather than conventional time-based scheduling.
“Wärtsilä can provide maintenance on a wide scale that positions well with our needs,” said Hajime Adachi, general manager, engineering department, Tokyo LNG Tanker. “We need a reliable lifecycle partner who can respond to our needs and enable us to operate as smoothly as possible. This is why we have chosen Wärtsilä as our maintenance partner.”
“Our agreement with Tokyo LNG Tanker is an important aid in ensuring their fleet availability and eliminating unexpected breakdowns. It will allow the customer to focus on their core business, and strengthen the reliability of their operations,” said John Sydney, vice president, Middle East & Asia, Wärtsilä Marine.
