Technology group Wartsila has sealed a deal to provide technical and remote support for eight Teekay Shipping LNG carriers.

Under the LNG Support Agreements, valid for five years, Wartsila will provide both remote support as well as 24/7 technical support for the vessels’ onboard Gas Process Plants. Wartsila will utilise its digital Operational Performance Improvement & Monitoring tool to achieve optimal efficiency under changes in operating conditions.

“Lifecycle support to our customers’ installations is a central pillar in the strategy of Wartsila Gas Solutions. Agreements such as these are the best way for ensuring that the products, systems and solutions that we deliver are properly maintained, and that their reliability and performance are at the optimal level,” said Rene Christian Olsen, director services of Wartsila Gas Solutions.

Wartsila already has a longstanding relationship with Teekay and has supplied multiple products for their fleet.
