Golar Extends Maintenance Deal with Wartsila
Finland's Wartsila announced on January 25 it had secured a five-year extension to its optimised maintenance agreement with Golar Management Norway, the operator of a fleet of LNG carriers and floating storage and regasification units (FSRUs).
The deal covers the installation of Wartsila 50DF dual-fuel engines on 14 ships and Wartsila 34DF dual-fuel and Wartsila 20DF dual-fuel engines on two more vessels.
"The agreement will enable Golar to pursue a predictive maintenance strategy enabled by dynamic maintenance planning and asset diagnostics," Wartsila said. "Furthermore, Wartsila’s operational support provides round-the-clock remote support and actionable advice from Wartsila expertise centres."
Advanced diagnostics and Wartsila's deep equipment expertise will improve the safety, reliability and efficiency of the equipment and systems installed, the company continued, and provide flexibility in maintenance scheduling.
