Wärtsilä to ensure and optimise the performance of four TMS Cardiff Gas vessels
The technology group Wärtsilä is expanding its co-operation with the Athens based ship management company TMS Cardiff Gas Ltd. Under the recently signed maintenance agreement, Wärtsilä ensures the maintenance predictability of the operation of four TFDE LNG Carriers in TMS Cardiff Gas’ fleet. Eniram’s data collection platform and advanced data analytics helps TMS Cardiff Gas to achieve optimal fleet operations, resulting in reduced fuel costs and emissions, the company said in its press release.
The maintenance agreement, signed in December 2017, advances the performance monitoring of TMS Cardiff Gas’ vessels. The agreement is an expansion to the earlier Technical Management Agreement signed between Wärtsilä and TMS Cardiff Gas in 2014. With the new agreement, the scope of Wärtsilä’s services include, among others, Eniram’s data collection platform and advanced data analytics that enables TMS Cardiff Gas to save costs and maximise overall profitability while cutting its emissions.
Wärtsilä’s Dynamic Maintenance planning, in combination with Eniram’s Vessel digital performance management system, provides TMS Cardiff Gas with a comprehensive view of each vessel’s performance, efficiency, and improvement possibilities.
Wärtsilä is engaged in the maintenance and optimisation of vessels’ engines, allowing the customer to focus on its core business. Wärtsilä provides all necessary spare parts for the maintenance of the vessels as well as field service resources for scheduled maintenance that has been planned according to the actual running hours of the engines. Remote support service guarantees that the vessels’ crews have access to Wärtsilä’s support team around the clock, which facilitates troubleshooting on the spot and also minimises service visits on board.
TMS Cardiff Gas, established in 2011, is an operator and manager, with a fleet of ten modern Gas Carriers (six LNG Carriers and four VLGCs). TMS Cardiff Gas is part of TMS group that manages more than 120 ships across the LNG, LPG, Oil/Chemicals, Dry Bulk and Offshore sectors.
