Finland’s Wartsila has signed a deal with Greek shipowner and operator GasLog to support the latter’s LNG carriers.
The optimized maintenance agreement signed in June this year includes ten large LNG carriers, according to a Wartsila statement.
It covers the vessels’ twin two-stroke dual-fuel main engines, enabling them to “benefit from the latest condition monitoring and asset diagnostic services,” the tech firm said.
These include Wartsila’s Expert Insight solution and remote operational support capabilities.
Wartsila estimates this solution would reduce unplanned maintenance by as much as 50 percent, and deliver an up to five percent improvement in fuel efficiency, with a corresponding reduction in emissions.
The firm did not reveal the price tag of the contract.
Peter Livanos-led GasLog has a fleet of 35 LNG carriers. Of these vessels, its unit GasLog Partners owns 15 ships.
