Wärtsilä agrees PGS remote monitoring deal

Wärtsilä and PGS Geophysical have signed a service agreement that makes Wärtsilä the preferred service supplier for engines and other Wärtsilä equipment, and includes the provision of condition based maintenance (CBM) services with automatic transfer of data from the installations to a CBM centre on shore.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}This setup will allow for online monitoring and troubleshooting of the engines on board four of the PGS ships from the CBM centre, from a total of eight ships covered by the deal. Wärtsilä analyses the data and provides advice on the optimisation of operating parameters as well as preventive maintenance recommendations.

According to the three-year agreement, which includes an option for a further two years, Wärtsilä will take care of the maintenance of engines and propulsion systems on board PGS's fleet of seismic vessels used for mapping and analysing the subsurface beneath the ocean floor for oil and gas exploration around the world.

“We are very proud to announce this new cooperation that makes Wärtsilä the preferred partner for PGS. Ensuring the availability and reliability of a large, globally operating fleet requires a wide service network, which we are able to offer,” said Hans Petter Nesse, director, service unit Norway, Wärtsilä Services.

“With Wärtsilä's advisory service and support, PGS is able to concentrate on what they specialise in - offering seismic services for their customers.”{/mprestriction}
