Wärtsilä Inks Sapura Brazil Fleet Support Deal

Wärtsilä has signed a five-year optimised maintenance agreement with subsea services player Sapura Brazil.

The agreement covers Sapura’s fleet of six pipe-laying support vessels (PLSVs).

The agreement will support the fleet’s operational performance and increase both its efficiency and reliability by accurately predicting maintenance requirements. This will also lower operating costs, Wärtsilä said.

“This agreement provides the customer with the benefits of the extensive experience and know-how we have, plus the latest predictive analytics technology. Wärtsilä is able to accurately analyse the need for maintenance on the ships’ engines and thrusters, and with our class-approved DMP concept we can achieve the flexibility and cost savings not possible with conventional manual-based maintenance planning. The necessary work and spare part requirements can be efficiently planned and scheduled in accordance with the Sapura vessels’ utilisation demand, and based on the true condition of the propulsion equipment,” says André Bosman, director, business and operations support, Wärtsilä Marine.

“This project further tightens our relationship with Wärtsilä and will deliver significant benefits to our operations. It is important to have this type of preparedness, which is focused on prevention, since it allows us to feel more confident about the integrity and reliability of our equipment,” says Rogério Salbego, CEO of Sapura Brazil.

With this solution, Sapura Brazil will have access to the Wärtsilä Expertise Centres to obtain full technical support for its operations. The ships covered by the agreement are fitted with Wärtsilä 32 engines and Wärtsilä transverse, steerable and retractable thrusters.
