Viking Glory to implement remote engine monitoring technologies

Viking Line’s new climate-smart vessel Viking Glory is to be outfitted with a remote engine monitoring system for predictive maintenance, as part of a three-year contract signed between the vessel operator and Wärtsilä.

Viking Glory’s new Technical Management Agreement (TMA) covers maintenance planning for six LNG-powered Wärtsilä 31DF engines, two LNGPac fuel gas supply systems and three tunnel thrusters, as well as on-demand remote operational and technical support.

The equipment will be connected to Wärtsilä’s Expert Insight service, which monitors engine health to provide diagnostics and real-time optimisation of performance and emissions.

“Viking Glory is a flagship for climate-smart technology and encapsulates our group ambition to be a forerunner of responsible navigation,” said Jan Hanses, CEO, Viking Line.

“Wärtsilä’s technical support as well as its technologies will help us achieve this vision.”

Viking Glory will begin sailing its route between Turku in Finland and Stockholm in Sweden from March 2022.
