GasLog in engine optimisation deal

Monaco-based GasLog LNG Services has signed a remote maintenance and optimisation agreement with Wärtsilä, covering eight LNG carriers operating on Wärtsilä dual-fuel engines.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The agreement consists of Dynamic Maintenance Planning (DMP), technical support, secured availability of spare parts and specialised technical personnel around the clock as well as constant performance monitoring.

Wärtsilä’s digital services will manage remote troubleshooting and tuning of engines as well as software updates. Additionally, the continuously collected performance data will be analysed and used to create regular reports for GasLog.

“By analysing the operating conditions of the ship engines and streamlining maintenance accordingly, the operative efficiency of GasLog's vessels is optimised at all times,” said Yiannis Christopoulos, director service unit Greece-Cyprus and managing director of Wärtsilä Greece.

“Instead of concentrating on the theoretical lifetime of engine components, we monitor their actual condition. By applying real-time installation data we can strive for optimum lifecycle utilisation of the entire installation. Overall, I'm very pleased to see how we are extending the close cooperation between our companies through another long-term partnership agreement.”

The new agreement expands an existing relationship between Wärtsilä and Gaslog. The two companies have an existing maintenance agreement in force, signed in 2014, which covers seven other LNG carriers. The new deal covers eight different LNG carriers, four new vessels and a renewal of services for another four.{/mprestriction}

  • Abu Dhabi Maritime Academy takes delivery of Wärtsilä Cloud Simulation solution

    Wärtsilä has successfully delivered its brand-new Cloud Simulation solution to Abu Dhabi Maritime Academy. Comprising a combination of cloud-based solutions, including navigational, engine room and liquid cargo handling simulators, Wärtsilä is the first company to offer class-approved cloud-based simulation technology to the maritime industry.

    The online installation was deployed in early July, allowing the Academy to continue providing its training despite ongoing social distancing and travel restrictions.

    Abu Dhabi Maritime Academy is a maritime training provider in the region, which is now powered by Wärtsilä Voyage technology. The addition of the online installations of NTPro and TechSim will broaden the simulation-based training offering available at the Academy.

    Cloud Simulation technology takes simulation beyond the boundaries of the physical classroom, to provide location and device independence, and to deliver simulation-based training wherever, whenever, and however it is needed by the user.

    Remote access to training allows students and instructors to reach various Wärtsilä Voyage simulation models on their personal devices, away from the classroom and without the need for specific Wärtsilä software. Both the TechSim and NTPRO platforms in the cloud provide a classroom configuration with trainer and multiple student stations for familiar instructor-led training.

    “We are excited to be at the leading edge of this technology in the maritime industry and enable trainees to acquire a wide range of navigational and engineering skills, without the need to physically attend the training centre. By having remote access to the simulation library and any classroom-based exercise, instructors can easily manage the application and deliver the training,” commented Torsten Büssow, director, Wärtsilä Voyage.

    "We are very pleased to have this next-generation of blended-learning solutions delivered by Wärtsilä Voyage. The bespoke training that this solution allows to deliver will undeniably enhance the training experience of our students. The Wärtsilä Voyage distance learning application will surely open up many new training opportunities inside and outside the physical classroom”, said Capt. Clive Hotham, head of Marine Short Courses and Simulator, Abu Dhabi Maritime Academy.
