  • Wärtsilä has signed a six-year Lifecycle Agreement with Malaysia based Nautica Ship Management, covering two vessels, the MTT Saisunee (pictured) & MTT Senari.

Technology group Wärtsilä has signed a six-year Lifecycle Agreement with Malaysia-based Nautica Ship Management. The agreement covers two vessels, the MTT Saisunee & MTT Senari, and is designed to ensure that the ships’ exhaust gas treatment systems operate at maximum efficiency. The vessels are feeder container vessels and are fitted with Wärtsilä hybrid scrubber systems. The order was booked by Wärtsilä in Q2 2024.

"It is central to our commitment to sustainable operations that the scrubber systems on these vessels are working with optimal efficiency. This enables the ships to comply with the relevant environmental regulations. We know Wärtsilä well, and our experience with their agreements on other vessels in our fleet has been excellent. It was natural, therefore, that we continue this relationship for these two vessels," says Azreen Nor Bin Mohamad, Senior technical Superintendent of Nautica Ship Management.

The scope of the agreement includes remote access capabilities. This feature enables seamless monitoring and troubleshooting of the Exhaust Gas Cleaning (EGC) systems installed on the two vessels, ensuring prompt response and minimal downtime.

"We are pleased to recognise Nautica’s professional approach to maintaining and future-proofing their fleet and are proud to support them with this agreement. We constantly upgrade and improve our solutions in line with the latest and best available technology. Our 24/7 service, and especially the remote access feature, gives us the opportunity to provide immediate support and troubleshooting for these vessels, while delivering important cost savings," comments David Xu, Wärtsilä Area Sales Manager in Singapore.

Wärtsilä’s range of Lifecycle Agreements provide long-term cost predictability and availability by using data-driven technical support and maintenance at every step, from planning to execution. Ship operators benefit from proactive support and recommendations by experts at Wärtsilä Expertise Centres, who help to optimise maintenance intervals according to actual needs while preventing unexpected downtime.

Nautica Ship Management had previously signed Lifecycle Agreements for two other vessels, the MTT Samalaju and MTT Semporna.
