Wartsila, Golar extend LNG maintenance deal

Finland’s Wartsila has signed a five-year extension to its optimised maintenance deal with a unit of Norway-based shipping firm Golar LNG.

Besides the 14 vessels included in the previous deal signed in 2015, the new deal with Golar Management Norway incoporates two new additional Golar vessels, according to Wartsila.

Moreover, the new agreement signed in December last year covers a total of 16 ship installations, Wartsila said. These include 14 with Wartsila 50DF dual-fuel engines, plus two with 34DF and 20DF engines.

Golar operates both LNG carriers and floating storage and regasification units (FSRUs) but also a floating LNG producer (FLNG).

Wartsila says the agreement would enable Golar to pursue a predictive maintenance strategy enabled by dynamic maintenance planning and asset diagnostics.

Furthermore, Wartsila’s operational support provides round-the-clock remote support and actionable advice from the firm’s expertise centres, it said.

Wartsila did not disclose any financial details of the contract.
