Wärtsilä and Neste Oil Sign Maintenance Agreement
Wärtsilä has signed a five-year maintenance agreement with Finnish Neste Oil, covering both the main and auxiliary engines, delivered by Wärtsilä, for eight vessels in the Neste Oil fleet. According to the agreement, Wärtsilä offers maintenance operations, spare parts, including performance optimization, as well as an annual visit of specialists to check the optimal operation of each vessel's engines under running conditions.
Neste Oil operates a fleet of about 30 vessels. It transports around 40 million tons of crude oil, petroleum products and chemicals annually, primarily in the Baltic Sea (a particularly sensitive sea area (PSSA)), the North Sea and the North Atlantic. All of the company's vessels are ice-reinforced and they feature a double hull.
Wärtsilä has experience in providing long-term operational and management services for about 1000 similar engines installed in ships and land-based power plants all over the world.
Wärtsilä's maintenance agreements are available for all marine installations. With a long term service agreement, the customer has guaranteed availability of spare parts and maintenance crews. By having annual onboard visits and continuous monitoring of the engine condition, the engine efficiency can be optimized.
