Wärtsilä will provide extensive technical support and advisory services for Singapore-based large cutter dredger Cassiopeia V. The five-year Technical Management Agreement includes Dynamic Maintenance Planning (DMP) and is complemented by Advanced Technical Support to ensure the reliability and availability of the vessel. The cooperation between Wärtsilä and Cassiopeia Five Pte Ltd, which owns and operates the vessel Cassiopeia V, began in 2015 with Wärtsilä's Advanced Technical Support. The Advanced Technical Support (ATS) covers extensive proactive technical information, service and advice to the ship crew by a dedicated Wärtsilä Services team. The new agreement expands the partnership between Wärtsilä and Cassiopeia Five Pte Ltd. The agreement includes technical management support of the dredger's two Wärtsilä 46 main engines, one Wärtsilä 20 auxiliary engine, and two Wärtsilä thrusters. The agreement is part of Wärtsilä's Lifecycle solutions portfolio, which also includes Wärtsilä'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 rather than following a rigid calendar-based schedule, creating cost savings and increasing availability. Fuel economy is also optimised, reducing operating costs.
