Girocantex in Wärtsilä optimised maintenance deal

Wärtsilä and Girocantex Uruguay, a subsidiary of Hidrovias Group, have signed a five-year Optimised Maintenance agreement for Girocantex’s fleet of eight pusher tugs operating in the rivers of South America.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The maintenance package being provided by Wärtsilä includes an engine condition monitoring system, which will operate as part of a Dynamic Maintenance Planning (DMP) set-up whereby maintenance is undertaken in accordance with the real condition of the equipment.

Girocantex will also utilise Wärtsilä Online Services under the deal, which offers online access to technical information on the installations and provides a platform to ask questions to Wärtsilä’s technical experts as required.

“We expect and trust that with this agreement, we are able to maintain or even further improve the availability and utilisation of our vessels safely and economically,” said Alexandre Petterle, general manager, Hidrovias do Brasil.

“Close cooperation with Wärtsilä and the extensive scope of services, monitoring and planning will assure the maximal lifecycle value of our vessels, which is crucial for our operations and our customers.”{/mprestriction}
