Wärtsilä and BW Gas Sign Training Contract

Monday, February 26, 2007
Wärtsilä Corporation and the Norwegian gas transportation company BW Gas ASA of Oslo signed a contract in January 2007 for the training of BW Gas personnel. The contract is for two years. The training courses provided under this contract are tailored to the specific requirements of BW Gas to cover the specific operational and performance aspects of the ships in the BW Gas fleet. The objective is to give ships' personnel and shore management a sound basis for cost-efficient, safe and reliable operation of the company's ships.

It is intended that the training courses go beyond the usual practical training for various ship systems and equipment to transfer knowledge about engine performance and operation philosophy in order to ensure optimum operation of the ships' plants. One of the objectives is thus to create a basis for long-term successful operation of the ships as part of the BW Gas business. This long-term view is part of Wärtsilä's philosophy of providing lifetime support to customers, not just on engines, technology and equipment but also with respect to human resources' aspects. The training courses will be provided by Wärtsilä Land & Sea Academy (WLSA) to ships' crews, superintendents and other shore personnel. There will be some 300 people from BW Gas taking part in the courses. They work on the 72 ships that are owned or part-owned by BW Gas. The courses will be provided at different WLSA training centres, whichever are the most convenient for BW Gas.
