Wärtsilä is expanding its co-operation with the Athens based ship management company TMS Cardiff Gas Ltd. Under the recently signed maintenance agreement, Wärtsilä ensures the maintenance predictability of the operation of four TFDE LNG carriers in TMS Cardiff Gas' fleet. Eniram's data collection platform and advanced data analytics helps TMS Cardiff Gas to achieve optimal fleet operations, resulting in reduced fuel costs and emissions.
The maintenance agreement, signed in December 2017, advances the performance monitoring of TMS Cardiff Gas' vessels. The agreement is an expansion to the earlier Technical Management Agreement signed between Wärtsilä and TMS Cardiff Gas in 2014. With the new agreement, the scope of Wärtsilä's services include, among others, Eniram's data collection platform and advanced data analytics that enables TMS Cardiff Gas to save costs and maximise overall profitability while cutting its emissions.
Wärtsilä's Dynamic Maintenance planning, in combination with Eniram's Vessel digital performance management system, provides TMS Cardiff Gas with a comprehensive view of each vessel's performance, efficiency, and improvement possibilities.
"Our vision is to be one of the world's leading LNG and LPG operators with the highest standards of excellence in terms of performance, reliability, and safety. The maintenance and upgrade service needs of the tri-fuel Main Generator Engines on our LNG carriers are technically advanced and require detailed planning with a professional partner to ensure the engines' reliable performance and the vessels' operability. Through our five-year partnership with Wärtsilä and Eniram, we are confident that our fleet will continue to be our customers' premium choice," says George Kourelis, General Manager of TMS Cardiff Gas.
