Wärtsilä has opened its 10th expertise centre in Singapore to provide support functions such as operational support and dynamic maintenance planning for customers with lifecycle agreements.
The new facility is based within Wärtsilä’s Singapore acceleration centre and will provide advice and recommendations based on the analysis of data from monitoring the condition and performance of the specified machinery for customers with lifecycle agreements.
The company’s network of expertise centres currently monitor 900 installations and over 2,000 engines worldwide.
“Our aim is always to serve the customer better. We do this by using the latest technology and proven methods to increase the asset’s reliability and availability, while at the same time reducing the need for unplanned maintenance. The customer can rely on Wärtsilä ensuring that operational performance is maintained at the right level, and the new Singapore EC (expertise centre) emphasises our commitment to long-term partnerships with our customers,” said Erik Ristiluoma, director, contract management, Wärtsilä Marine.
It is the company’s 10th such centre worldwide.
