Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 3/14/2016, Location: Africa

Wartsila, a global leader in lifecycle solutions for the marine and energy markets, has signed a five-year maintenance agreement with the Nigerian gas transportation company Bonny Gas Transport Limited, (BGT), a subsidiary of Nigeria LNG Limited. Wartsila will monitor and service the engines on board the BGT’s six new LNG carriers and deliver spare parts, as well as expertise for inspections and major service overhauls. The contract marks the beginning of a new era of cooperation between Wartsila and BGT, and is the first of its kind for Wartsila in Africa.

Nigeria LNG Limited exports most of its cargo to the European Asian markets. The six LNG carriers are equipped with five Wartsila 50DF engines each and operate primarily on gas.

Dynamic Maintenance Planning increases predictability of costs and operations

Wartsila’s Dynamic Maintenance Planning (DMP) concept utilizing Condition Based Monitoring (CBM) will determine the actual engine maintenance needs. Bonny Gas Transport will also have around the clock access to online operational and technical support.

“We are very excited about this opportunity to provide superior maintenance services to Bonny Gas Transport. In addition to increasing the engine uptime, Bonny Gas Transport wanted to improve maintenance planning and operative cost control and this is something Wartsila can offer. With the continuous remote monitoring of the equipment and the dynamic maintenance planning concept, we can ensure optimal availability while minimising the risk of disruptions to operations,” says Simon Auseth, General Manager Business development, Marine Agreements, Wartsila.

The agreement is the first to apply Wartsila’s Data Acquisition System, part of Wartsila’s Genius services which helps customers optimise their operations and seize the opportunities that digitalisation offers. The system provides real-time access and analysis of data with one system and enables automated measuring- and guarantee of power availability.
