The technology group Wärtsilä has expanded its partnership with the Dutch marine contractor Van Oord with the signing of a nine-year renewal and extension to its Optimised Maintenance agreement.

The new agreement also expands on the original by adding Wärtsilä’s Expert Insight and Data Driven Maintenance solutions.

It also enables the addition of technologies and maintenance procedures delivering better fuel efficiency and lower emissions.

The contract covers the Wärtsilä engines installed on the cutter suction dredger Athena and was signed in January 2021.

Wärtsilä and Van Oord have a long-standing business relationship. Athena operates with three Wärtsilä 46F engines.
