Norwegian Cruise Line orders PrimeServ upgrades for multiple vessels
MAN PrimeServ, MAN Diesel & Turbo’s after-sales division, has confirmed an order from Norwegian Cruise Line for SOLAS (Safety of Life at Sea) insulation upgrades for nine ships, totalling 44 engines, from the company’s fleet, the company said in its press release.
The order covers the equipping of all engines with an output of over 375 KW with heat insulation, spray protection and resistance to flammability and fluid density, according to the SOLAS 220 convention. MAN 48/60B, 48/60A and 58/64 engine types will receive the upgrades, which represent the first such order from the Miami-based company. The project will be completed in 2018.
MAN Diesel & Turbo considers this project a very good example of what it means to act as one global player for its customers worldwide and to execute projects as one big team.
