Wärtsilä claims that its Dynamic Maintenance Planning (DMP) proposition with performance guarantees adds value to the customers’ operations. Two of the vessels are owned by a joint venture (JV) between Mitsui O.S.K. Lines, Ltd (MOL) and JERA Co., Inc. (JERA), while the other two vessels are owned by a JV between Nippon Yusen Kabushiki Kaisha (NYK) and JERA.
According to the statement, the solutions cover a range of services, including scheduled maintenance parts for the equipment covered, all workshop services, all field servicing for piston related maintenance, turbocharger maintenance, condition-based maintenance (CBM) reporting, remote operational support (ROS) from Wärtsilä’s expertise centres, and dynamic maintenance planning. All four of the carriers are powered by Wärtsilä 50DF dual-fuel engines.
Jörgen Naaijer, General Manager, Marine Agreement Sales, Wärtsilä Marine, said: “Lifecycle support is central to Wärtsilä’s customer-focused philosophy. These agreements have been customised to address our customers’ long-term needs and business objectives. They bring measurable and guaranteed lifecycle cost benefits to the owners in terms of reliability, operational efficiency, and accurate maintenance planning based on the true condition of the equipment, which minimises the risk of unexpected downtime.”
