Wärtsilä has signed a long-term Technical Management Agreement with Harvey Gulf International Marine LLC (Harvey Gulf). This five-year agreement was signed in August 2014 and it covers Condition Based Maintenance and Dynamic Maintenance Planning for eight new offshore supply and multi-purpose support vessels - six liquefied natural gas (LNG) fuelled platform supply vessels and two offshore construction vessels powered by diesel fuel.
The signed agreement ensures ideal running conditions and optimized maintenance for Harvey Gulf's new vessels. It ensures that their engines - 18 Wärtsilä 34 dual-fuel engines and eight Wärtsilä 32 engines - always run at the optimal level, with optimized fuel economy and maintenance costs. Technical management is based on continuous condition monitoring data and periodical inspections.
