Wärtsilä Oyj Abp: Wärtsilä signs maintenance agreement with Ensco for sustained cost savings and improved reliability

Wärtsilä Corporation, Press release, 28 January 2016 at 10 am EET

Wärtsilä, the leading global supplier of flexible and efficient power plant
solutions and services, has signed a maintenance agreement with Ensco, a
global provider of offshore drilling services to the petroleum industry. The
agreement, signed in September 2015, will create both short- and long-term
savings by optimising Ensco's assets and improving predictability through
extensive condition monitoring services and parts supply management for
Ensco's four drillships equipped with six Wärtsilä 32 engines.

In the offshore markets, Wärtsilä's customers are continuously seeking
increased reliability, maximum uptime and optimal operational efficiency as
well as ensuring safe and sustainable environmental performance in harsh
environments. With more stringent environmental regulation related to CO2
emissions and growing environmental awareness among customers, environmental
efficiency is a key issue for offshore industry.

Under this seven-year agreement, Wärtsilä will monitor Ensco's installations
to safely and reliably extend time between equipment overhauls for scheduled
maintenance, providing clear cost savings and improved lifecycle and
environmental efficiency. Wärtsilä will also provide Ensco full service
support from Wärtsilä's remote service centres. Additionally, Ensco will
receive technical guidance from Wärtsilä's reports and audits to manage
unscheduled maintenance, spare part deliveries and other services.

"Ensco prides itself on being the industry leader in customer satisfaction by
continually looking for new ways to enhance the reliability and efficiency of
our equipment," said John Knowlton, Ensco's Senior Vice President -
Technical. "By further improving the condition monitoring systems for our
equipment, we optimise the uptime performance of our offshore drilling rigs,
while also streamlining costs."

"During this time when the Oil and Gas industry is restructuring its
operations due to current market conditions, we are pleased to offer services
that help further enhance Ensco's operations globally," says Kourtney Dever,
General Manager Service Sales from Wärtsilä. "The flexibility of Wärtsilä
Genius services will not only provide cost savings but also overall
reliability and accurate planning of maintenance and overhaul services."
