The deal covers all maintenance planning and services for the installed engines and propulsion systems, with maintenance carried out for a fixed price per operating hour.
Wagenborg will use Wärtsilä's Remote Condition Monitoring System, which assesses the state of the engines to optimise maintenance work.
Wärtsilä says that condition monitoring and maintenance planning allows the time between overhauls to be extended, and can also increase engine reliability and performance, helping to save fuel and reduce emissions.
"One important result of this contract is that it facilitates more efficient maintenance,” says Theo Klimp, fleet director at Wagenborg Shipping.
“Our goal is to improve technical engine performance and optimise maintenance planning. The contract also allows us to keep our operational costs more controllable; it was very important for us to have unscheduled maintenance included in the scope of the contract."
