Prestige Cruise Lines ships will benefit from ABB turbocharger maintenance

ABB has announced a five-year maintenance agreement with Prestige Cruise Holdings (PCH) to provide services, parts and support for all turbochargers installed on its fleet of eight cruise ships.

Under the agreement, PCH vessels will be serviced by ABB’s network of turbocharger service stations. The contract is valued at US$5.6 million. PCH is the parent company of Oceania Cruises and Regent Seven Seas Cruises.

ABB says that the agreement will help PCH reduce operating costs by keeping turbochargers operating at peak performance.

“This agreement will help us to proactively maintain all turbochargers on our ships; and ensure that we have the highest quality and most reliable services for this equipment anywhere in the world. It will help us to minimise equipment downtime while improving overall turbocharger performance, to keep our fleet engines in top operating condition,” said Paolo Mele, SVP, marine and technical operations for PCH.
