Wärtsilä has signed a five-year maintenance agreement with Finnish Neste Oil. The agreement covers both the main and auxiliary engines, delivered by Wärtsilä, for eight vessels in the Neste Oil fleet. According to the agreement, Wärtsilä offers maintenance operations, spare parts, including performance optimisation, as well as an annual visit of specialists to check the optimal operation of each vessel's engines under running conditions.
Neste Oil operates a fleet of about 30 vessels. It transports around 40 million tons of crude oil, petroleum products and chemicals annually, primarily in the Baltic Sea (a particularly sensitive sea area, (PSSA)), the North Sea and the North Atlantic. All of the company's vessels are ice-reinforced and they feature a double hull.
