Wärtsilä has signed a five-year maintenance agreement with the Nigerian gas transportation company Bonny Gas Transport Limited, (BGT), a subsidiary of Nigeria LNG Limited, to cover real time data monitoring and service for the engines on board BGT's six new LNG carriers.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The six LNG carriers are each equipped with five Wärtsilä 50DF engines and operate primarily on gas. Nigeria LNG exports most of its cargo to European/Asian markets.

BGT is the first to apply Wärtsilä's Data Acquisition System, part of Wärtsilä's Genius services to optimise operations by providing real-time access and analysis of data for automated measurement and guaranteed power availability.

Wärtsilä's Dynamic Maintenance Planning (DMP) concept will rely on Condition Based Monitoring (CBM) to determine the actual engine maintenance needs and provide Bonny Gas Transport with 24 hour access to online operational and technical support.

“We are very excited about this opportunity to provide superior maintenance services to Bonny Gas Transport,” said Simon Auseth, general manager business development, marine agreements, Wärtsilä.

“In addition to increasing the engine uptime, Bonny Gas Transport wanted to improve maintenance planning and operative cost control and this is something Wärtsilä can offer. With the continuous remote monitoring of the equipment and the dynamic maintenance planning concept, we can ensure optimal availability while minimising the risk of disruptions to operations.”{/mprestriction}
