Wartsila, Maran Gas ink maintenance deal for 21 LNG carriers

Finland’s Wartsila said it has extended a maintenance deal with Greece’s Maran Gas, a unit of Angelicoussis Shipping Group, for the latter’s 21 TFDE LNG carriers.

The new-five year deal follows a maintence contract the two firms signed in 2017.

Wartsila said in statement that Maria Angelicoussis, CEO of both Maran Gas and Angelicoussis, signed the deal with Roger Holm, the company’s president marine power, on May 3.

All of the Maran Gas vessels in question are powered by Wartsila 50DF dual-fuel engines.

In addition to maintenance services including scheduled parts and maintenance work for the engines and turbochargers, the agreement will feature all workshop services and a full support package of advanced solutions.

These include remote operational support, dynamic maintenance planning, and Wartsila’s digital predictive maintenance solution, it said.

The tech firm did not provide the price tag of the deal.

“Wartsila has efficiently and effectively planned and executed maintenance of these vessels’ engines over the past five years and have provided valuable operational support,” Maria Angelicoussis said.

“The company’s worldwide service support network demonstrates a high level of professionalism, which is important to both us and to our charterers,” she said.

Maran Gas welcomed five LNG newbuilds into its fleet last year. It also ordered four new LNG carriers at DSME in 2022.

Maran Gas has currently 45 LNG carriers in operation, including one FSRU, its website shows.

On top of this, the firm has nine 174,000-cbm LNG carriers on order and scheduled for delivery during 2023-2025, the data shows.
