Oil, gas and chemical tankers are critical to resource distribution worldwide and the business model is highly cost sensitive meaning that every element of a tanker needs to deliver above and beyond. Ensuring costs are reduced and efficiency is increased to deliver the best possible Time Charter Equivalent rate is achieved is critical.
Wärtsilä has a long history of delivering efficient solutions that reduce costs - from fuel efficiency and future fuel solutions to route optimisation solutions and also increase efficiency for example predictive maintenance that can prevent unplanned interruptions in chartered voyages.
We appreciate that there are often 2 forces at play in the tanker segment – an owner and a charterer. Each are striving for the best deal possible. This is where Wartsila can support both sides of the equation with:
- Fuel efficiency and fuel flexibility - reduced fuel costs and increase vessel resale value
- Remove unplanned down time – reduce unscheduled maintenance and associated costs and increase operational productivity
- Efficient route management – reduce fuel consumption by as much as 5% and ensure Just in time arrival enabling reduced speed and crew costs.
