Petroleum Geo-Services (PGS), a marine geophysical company, has chosen Finnish company Wärtsilä to service engines and other equipment of its vessel fleet.

According to the agreement, Wärtsilä will take care of engines and propulsion systems maintenance onboard PGS’s fleet of 8 seismic vessels.

The Finnish equipment provider said on Wednesday that the three-year agreement was signed in December 2016 and it includes an option for two extra years.

As a part of the contract, Wärtsilä will optimize the operations and maintenance of the Wärtsilä engines and propulsion systems installed on board PGS’s vessels.

Four of the PGS vessels are also connected to the company’s Condition Based Maintenance solution (CBM). The CBM balances safe operations with optimum engine performance and extended times between overhauls. Automatic transfer of data from to the CBM center enables online monitoring and troubleshooting of the engines on board.

Hans Petter Nesse, Director of Wärtsilä Services Norway, said: “We are very proud to announce this new cooperation that makes Wärtsilä the preferred partner for PGS. With Wärtsilä’s advisory service and support, PGS can concentrate on what they specialize in – offering seismic services for their customers.”

PGS provides 3D images of the subsurface that oil companies use to find oil and gas reserves. The company provides a broad range of seismic, electromagnetic and reservoir services, including acquisition, imaging, interpretation, and field evaluation.

Håkon Matheson, Global Sourcing Manager of PGS, said: “Marine geophysics is a highly specialized and technology-driven area, and the reliability and safety of our fleet are essential. We are confident that we can rely on the maritime solutions and expertise of Wärtsilä.”
