Wärtsilä and Maersk LNG sign service agreement

Copenhagen: Marine ship power system integrator Wärtsilä has signed a long term service agreement with Maersk LNG. The agreement includes maintenance planning, condition & performance monitoring, co-ordination and supply of technical services, parts and service work for five 165,000 cum LNG vessels equipped with Wärtsilä 50DF dual-fuel engines over a 5 year period.

"For Maersk LNG, this service agreement means improved levels of certainty regarding servicing of the main engines on our LNG vessels. With this monitoring system in place, maintenance work can be proactive," said Claus H. Thomsen, director, Maersk LNG. "The contract also guarantees us stable maintenance costs for at least the next five years."

Wärtsilä has extensive experience in providing long-term operational and management services for about 1000 similar engines installed in ships and land-based power plants all over the world. Headquartered in Copenhagen, Maersk LNG operates a fleet of seven LNG vessels, with one more on order for delivery early 2010.   [31/12/09]
