The technology group Wartsila has signed a five year extension to its Optimised Maintenance agreement with Golar Management Norway, the operator and manager of a fleet of LNG Carrier and Floating Storage and Regasification Unit (FSRU) vessels. The agreement covers a total of 16 ship installations; 14 with Wartsila 50DF dual-fuel engines, plus 2 with Wartsila 34DF dual-fuel and Wartsila 20DF dual-fuel engines. The extension contract was signed in December 2020.

The agreement will 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 Wartsila Expertise Centres. The combination of advanced diagnostics and Wärtsilä’s deep equipment expertise greatly enhances the safety, reliability and efficiency of the equipment and systems installed. It will also provide flexibility in maintenance scheduling by conducting maintenance based on actual equipment condition optimised for the vessels’ operations.

“We are pleased to continue our long-term partnership with Wartsila with this service agreement extension. Wartsila’s digital remote support capabilities have proved to be of great value for us, saving both time and costs by often eliminating the need to have service people sent onboard in person,” says Oistein Dahl, Managing Director of Golar Management Norway.

“Lifecycle support is a key element of our strategy, and an important factor for us to be a trusted and reliable partner to our customers. With Wartsila Optimised Maintenance, we are able to increase availability and reduce unscheduled maintenance. By renewing and extending this agreement, we are also strengthening the partnership that exists between our companies, and we are proud that Golar is continuing their journey with us,” says Henrik Wilhelms, Director Performance Services, Wartsila Marine Power.

The new 5-year Lifecycle Solution agreement includes 14 vessels that have had a 5 year Optimised Maintenance earlier and 2 new additional Golar vessels.
