Wartsila Optimizes Maintenance & Emissions for MMS Gas Carriers

The technology group Wartsila has signed Optimized Maintenance Agreements (OMAs) covering two LNG carrier vessels technically managed and operated by the Japanese shipping group MMS Co., Ltd. The agreements, signed in February 2022, are designed to deliver maximized engine uptime and long-term cost predictability, optimizing maintenance for highest efficiency and lowest carbon footprint.

Central to the OMAs value is Wartsila's latest digital predictive maintenance solution, Expert Insight. Using artificial intelligence (AI) and advanced diagnostics, the service enables onboard equipment and systems to be monitored in real-time. Anomalies are flagged to specialists at Wartsila Expertise Centres, allowing them to support customers proactively with an appropriate resolution.

“When we introduced Expert Insight we said that it would take predictive maintenance to the next level, and this has proven to be the case. It is a hugely beneficial service that forms the basis for better asset management decisions and increased operational efficiency. This lowers both operational cost as well as emissions,” said Henrik Wilhelms, Director, Agreement Sales at Wartsila.

The two vessels operate with Wartsila 50DF dual-fuel engines. In addition to Expert Insight’s asset diagnostics and anomaly detection capabilities, under the terms of the agreements Wartsila will also provide all spare parts, dynamic maintenance planning, remote operational support, field services, and workshop services.

Optimized Maintenance Agreements are an integral element within Wartsila's lifecycle support approach. As the global market for LNG has grown rapidly, customers in the segment have increasingly seen the value of remote support and long-term cooperation on maintenance. Wartsila has OMAs covering more than 260 LNG carriers.
