Wärtsilä, a marine industry solutions and services provider, 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 six liquefied natural gas (LNG) fuelled platform supply vessels using 18 Wärtsilä 34 dual-fuel engines, plus two diesel-powered vessels.
Technical management is based on continuous condition monitoring data and periodical inspections. The agreement also includes Online Remote Operational Support, which enables Wärtsilä’s technical experts to support vessels in real time, without the need for engineers to travel to the vessels.
“We are very pleased to expand our partnership with Harvey Gulf. This agreement reaffirms their commitment to the offshore oil and gas business in the Gulf of Mexico by adding safe and environmentally sustainable LNG fuelled vessels to their modern fleet. With this extended partnership, we will enable the safe and reliable operation of their offshore supply and multi-purpose support vessels throughout their lifecycle,” says Walter Reggente, Service Director of Wärtsilä North America.
