Wärtsilä and Rederiaktiebolaget Eckerö have extended their long-term maintenance agreement for Eckerö's entire fleet of five vessels, which will see Wärtsilä extend the use of its digital maintenance concepts.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}One of the vessels under the five-year agreement has been fitted with the Wärtsilä Condition based monitoring system, which provides data to enable dynamic maintenance planning.

“We have very positive experiences of working with Wärtsilä and wanted to extend our cooperation further,” said Daniel Olsén, technical manager, Rederiaktiebolaget Eckerö.

“Wärtsilä was able to offer a customised service package that met all our maintenance needs. Furthermore, these services increase cost predictability and reduce risks. We consider Wärtsilä a trusted partner.”

In addition to service and maintenance work, Wärtsilä provides spare parts, shaft seals, services for the catalytic converters, dynamic maintenance planning (DMP) and condition based maintenance (CBM).

The aim of the dynamic maintenance planning solution is to extend maintenance intervals and reduce spare parts consumption. Maintenance operations are then planned based on expert analysis of the engine’s condition and the real-time data provided by the engines.

“We are happy to take our cooperation with Eckerö to a new level. We value their trust highly. With these services, we are able to gain useful data and can help Eckerö maintain and safeguard engine availability,” said Peter Guldbrand, general manager sales, service unit Baltic and Black Sea, Wärtsilä.

“Customised solutions or service packages, such as this one, are Wärtsilä's way of ensuring that our customers get exactly what they need in order to operate efficiently and reliably.”{/mprestriction}
