Finnish technology group Wartsila has signed a 15-year technical management agreement with China LNG Shipping (International) Company (CLSICO) to ensure the operational reliability of the Dapeng Princess, the world’s largest shallow draft LNG carrier, it announced on September 7.
The vessel operates with three Wartsila 34DF dual-fuel engines, and the technical management agreement includes constant data monitoring and maintenance support for the engines and gas valve units.
The full scope includes Wartsila’s Dynamic Maintenance Planning solution, which maximises the time between overhauls and provides scheduling flexibility. Also included is Expert Insight, Wartsila's upredictive maintenance solution, which secures asset availability by preventing potential problems before they occur.
“We are very pleased to sign this agreement with CLSICO which supports cost-efficient maintenance and will deliver optimal uptime for the ship,” commented Henrik Wilhelms, director, agreement sales, Wartsila Marine Power.
