Wartsila to Provide Technical Support for CSD Cassiopeia V

Wartsila has just announced that they will provide a five-year extensive technical support and advisory services for the cutter suction dredger Cassiopeia V.

The Technical Management Agreement includes Dynamic Maintenance Planning (DMP) and is complemented by Advanced Technical Support to ensure the reliability and availability of the vessel, Wartsila said.

The cooperation between Wartsila and Cassiopeia Five Pte Ltd, which owns and operates the vessel Cassiopeia V, began in 2015 with Wartsila’s Advanced Technical Support.

The new¬†agreement includes technical management support of the dredger’s two Wartsila 46 main engines, one Wartsila 20 auxiliary engine, and two Wartsila thrusters.

This deal is part of Wartsila’s Lifecycle solutions portfolio, which also includes Wartsila’s digital offering, and provides continuous condition monitoring as well as periodic inspections.

These allow planning of engine and thruster maintenance according to the actual equipment condition, creating cost savings and increasing availability, Wartsila said.

Cassiopeia Five Pte Ltd is a fully owned subsidiary of Penta-Ocean Construction Co. Ltd., headquartered in Tokyo, Japan.
