Wärtsilä Oyj Abp: Wärtsilä to optimise maintenance and enhance engine performance for Nigerian Bonny Gas Transport

Wärtsilä Corporation, Press release, 14 March 2016 at 10 am EET

Wärtsilä, a global leader in lifecycle solutions for the marine and energy
markets, has signed a five-year maintenance agreement with the Nigerian gas
transportation company Bonny Gas Transport Limited, (BGT), a subsidiary of
Nigeria LNG Limited. Wärtsilä will monitor and service the engines on board
the BGT's six new LNG carriers and deliver spare parts, as well as expertise
for inspections and major service overhauls. The contract marks the beginning
of a new era of cooperation between Wärtsilä and BGT, and is the first of its
kind for Wärtsilä in Africa.

Nigeria LNG Limited exports most of its cargo to the European Asian markets.
The six LNG carriers are equipped with five Wärtsilä 50DF engines each and
operate primarily on gas.

Dynamic Maintenance Planning increases predictability of costs and operations

Wärtsilä's Dynamic Maintenance Planning (DMP) concept utilizing Condition
Based Monitoring (CBM) will determine the actual engine maintenance needs.
Bonny Gas Transport will also have around the clock access to online
operational and technical support.

"We are very excited about this opportunity to provide superior maintenance
services to Bonny Gas Transport. In addition to increasing the engine uptime,
Bonny Gas Transport wanted to improve maintenance planning and operative cost
control and this is something Wärtsilä can offer. With the continuous remote
monitoring of the equipment and the dynamic maintenance planning concept, we
can ensure optimal availability while minimising the risk of disruptions to
operations," says Simon Auseth, General Manager Business development, Marine
Agreements, Wärtsilä.

The agreement is the first to apply Wärtsilä's Data Acquisition System, part
of Wärtsilä's Genius services which helps customers optimise their operations
and seize the opportunities that digitalisation offers. The system provides
real-time access and analysis of data with one system and enables automated
measuring- and guarantee of power availability.
