Wartsila has secured a five-year extension for its optimised maintenance agreement (OMA) with Golar Management Norway.

Golar Management Norway is the operator and manager of a fleet of liquefied natural gas (LNG) carrier and floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU) vessels.

The OMA covers installation in 16 ships – 14 ships with Wartsila 50DF dual-fuel engines and two ships with Wartsila 34DF dual-fuel and Wartsila 20DF dual-fuel engines.

The contract extension was signed in December last year.

The deal will allow Golar to adopt a predictive maintenance strategy enabled by Dynamic Maintenance Planning and Asset Diagnostics.

Wartsila’s Operational Support will also offer continuous remote support and actionable advice from its expertise centres.

Wartsila’s equipment expertise, along with advanced diagnostics, is expected to enhance safety, reliability, and efficiency of the equipment and systems installed.

Furthermore, flexibility in maintenance is expected as it will be based on actual equipment condition.

Wartsila Marine Power director for performance services Henrik Wilhelms said: “Lifecycle support is a key element of our strategy and an important factor for us to be a trusted and reliable partner to our customers. With Wartsila optimised maintenance, we are able to increase availability and reduce unscheduled maintenance.

“By renewing and extending this agreement, we are also strengthening the partnership that exists between our companies, and we are proud that Golar is continuing their journey with us.”

The new five-year Lifecycle Solution agreement includes 14 vessels that have five-year optimised maintenance and two new additional Golar vessels.
