Wärtsilä signs support deals with Nakilat for LNG carriers
The Finnish technology group Wärtsilä has signed several agreements to support LNG carriers owned by Qatar-based Nakilat.
Wärtsilä stated that the agreements were signed in April this year and that they will last for five years.
Wärtsilä is the supplier of the LNG reliquefaction systems onboard all of the QFlex vessels (membrane-type liquefied natural gas carriers) covered by the agreements.
Under the agreements, Wärtsilä is to provide non-stop technical remote support for the vessels’ onboard gas process plants.
The support includes direct access to Wärtsilä’s LNG technical experts for specialized technical advice and remote troubleshooting. Following each cargo loading, selected operational data from the running reliquefaction systems is analysed by Wärtsilä’s LNG technical experts to ensure the operability of the system.
