Wartsila to maintain Golar’s fleet


Wartsila has signed a five-year Technical Management Agreement with Golar Management Oslo for delivery of services to Golar LNG – one of the largest independent owners and operators of liquefied natural gas (LNG) carriers in the world.

The service agreement includes remote monitoring of engines, maintenance planning, advisory services, and guaranteed availability of personnel as well as spare parts.

Golar LNG operates a fleet of 13 vessels, dedicated to both LNG transportation and midstream floating solutions. The company developed the world’s first Floating Storage and Regasification Units (FSRU’s) based on the conversion of existing LNG carriers. Golar’s LNG carriers and FSRU’s are all equipped with Wartsila engines, with the number of engines totaling 52. This cooperation prompted Golar LNG to turn to Wartsila for Asset Performance Optimisation concepts and solutions as well.

In addition to planning and consultation services, the Technical Management Agreement includes a condition-based maintenance (CBM) system that supports in optimising the performance of the installed equipment. The system allows Wartsila’s specialists to monitor and analyse various parameters, enabling Wartsila to plan and perform the maintenance activities needed in relation to the engines’ lifecycle and condition. This enables predictive maintenance while maximising uptime and reducing operating costs.
