MOL LNG Transport Europe agrees remote engine monitoring deal

Wärtsilä has signed a ten-year maintenance agreement with MOL LNG Transport Europe, an affiliate of the Japanese MOL Group, to cover online remote support and all scheduled engine maintenance activities for two LNG carriers.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The deal will leverage Wärtsilä’s Condition Based Maintenance (CBM) system to plan maintenance activities for the two vessels’ engines, basing maintenance on actual engine condition rather than following a strict calendar-based schedule.

The CBM monitoring system continuously collects data about the engines’ operating parameters and transmits the information in real time to a Wärtsilä service centre for technical expert analysis.

“We value Wärtsilä’s expertise and knowledge about these engines and therefore see Wärtsilä as a valued working partner for cost effective maintenance of our LNG carriers,” said Martin Gallacher, deputy general manager, MOL LNG Transport (Europe).

“We also place great importance on maximising our vessels’ availability, which will be achieved through this agreement.”

The vessels covered by the agreement, LNG carriers Spirit of Hela and Gigira Laitebo, are equipped with four Wärtsilä 50DF dual-fuel engines each.{/mprestriction}
