MAN Diesel & Turbo has announced two significant maintenance contracts, worth over €4 million, awarded to its PrimeServ Shanghai subsidiary by COSCO, the state-owned Chinese shipping group.

The first contract covers the retrofit of 32 vessels from the COSCO bulk carrier fleet with slide-fuel valves. It also includes the retrofit of seven + six vessels with Alpha Lubricators, giving a cumulative value of more than €2 million.

The second contract is with COSCO Shanghai and covers the maintenance of 24 sets of TCA88 turbochargers onboard 12 vessels. This contract too is valued at over €2 million.

Dr. Stephan Timmermann, executive board member of MAN Diesel & Turbo said: “We are proud to have agreed these contracts with COSCO. The nature of the retrofits, in particular, will greatly benefit the performance of COSCO’s engines and is testimony to the company’s green credentials, while the turbocharger deal is the first such agreement we have drawn up in China. We are looking forward to a long working relationship with one of China’s leading maritime companies.”
