Wartsila to Service PGS’ Vessel Fleet

Ramform Titan is one of the 8 seismic vessels under the service agreement between Wärtsilä and PGS.

Wärtsilä and PGS have signed a service agreement under which Wärtsilä will take care of the maintenance of engines and propulsion systems on board PGS’s fleet of eight seismic vessels.

The 3-year-agreement was signed in December 2016 and it includes an extension option for additional two years.

In the first phase of the contract Wärtsilä will optimize the operations and maintenance of the Wärtsilä engines and propulsion systems installed on board PGS’s vessels.

Four of the PGS vessels are also connected to Wärtsilä’s condition based maintenance solution (CBM). The CBM balances safe operations with optimum engine performance and extended times between overhauls.

Automatic transfer of data from the installations to the CBM centre enables online monitoring and troubleshooting of the engines on board.

In the second phase of the contract Wärtsilä and PGS will identify how PGS can utilize Wärtsilä’s digital solutions to further secure maritime uptime and minimize risk and costs, the company said.

“We are very proud to announce this new cooperation that makes Wärtsilä the preferred partner for PGS. Ensuring the availability and reliability of a large, globally operating fleet requires a wide service network, which we are able to offer. With Wärtsilä’s advisory service and support, PGS is able to concentrate on what they specialize in – offering seismic services for their customers,” said Hans Petter Nesse, director, Service Unit Norway, Wärtsilä Services.

“Marine geophysics is a highly specialized and technology-driven area, and the reliability and safety of our fleet is essential, as it ensures that we can deliver these services, as promised, to our customers. We are confident that we in turn can rely on the maritime solutions and expertise of Wärtsilä. We are looking forward to the coming years of fruitful cooperation,” said Håkon Matheson, global sourcing manager PGS.
