Norwegian Cruise Line has concluded a nine-ship four-year service agreement with MAN PrimeServ

MAN Diesel & Turbo’s PrimeServ division has concluded a four-year service contract with US-based cruise operator Norwegian Cruise Line covering the maintenance of the engines on nine of the fleet’s cruise liners.

The agreement, which MAN says is worth $30million, will be handled via the PrimeServ office in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and includes two further Norwegian cruise ships currently on order, which will be incorporated into the contract on their entry into service.

“MAN Diesel & Turbo has been a partner to Norwegian for many years,” said Brian Swensen, senior vice president of technical operations and refurbishment for Norwegian Cruise Line. “We are pleased to enter into this service agreement for the maintenance of the engines on nine of our vessels".

“The order from Norwegian Cruise Line represents a milestone for MAN Diesel & Turbo and for our service brand MAN PrimeServ,” says Dr Stephan Timmermann, executive board member of MAN Diesel & Turbo responsible for engines and marine systems and after-sales. “It is one of the first service agreements of its kind with one of our major customers and constitutes a key after-sales success in a very exciting cruise liner business".

MAN says that to date, 52 engines with 542 cylinders from various series have been produced for Norwegian Cruise Line’s vessels, including the first common rail conversion. The company’s next ship, Norwegian Breakaway, will be launched in April 2013.
