Bangkok: In order to meet the needs of its customers, and to ensure the best lifecycle support of customers’ vessels, Wartsila has introduced a new, comprehensive package of services, designed to cost efficiently manage hot and cold vessel lay-ups.
‘‘When laying-up, it is of the utmost importance that the vessel’s machinery be kept in good condition. This is achieved through professional management of the de-activation and re-activation phases, and by regular inspections and maintenance during the interim period,’ the company said in a statement. Wartsila’s lay-up services will be available for engine room equipment covering 2-stroke & 4-stroke engines, propulsion lines, electrical & automation equipment, and boiler systems. Centrally controlled and dispatched from Wartsila Switzerland, the expert crews are mobilised regionally in the Mediterranean, the Middle East and Asia. The service package is an all-in-one agreement covering a selection of equipment, for de-activation, re-activation, lay-up inspections, or a combination of all of these.
