MAN receives order for the maintenance of cruise liners from Norwegian Cruise Line

MAN Diesel & Turbo has received an order from the US-based cruise liner company Norwegian Cruise Line (NCL) for the maintenance of the engines on nine cruise liners. The service agreement runs for four years and is being handled by the MAN PrimeServ service office in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, USA. Besides the maintenance work it also covers the supply of spare parts. During the term of the agreement, two further Norwegian cruise ships will be put into service which will then also be incorporated into the contract. The order is worth US$ 30 million.

“The order from Norwegian Cruise Line represents a milestone for MAN Diesel & Turbo and for our service brand MAN PrimeServ,” says Dr. Stephan Timmermann, the Executive Board Member of MAN Diesel & Turbo responsible for the Engines & Marine Systems and After-Sales Strategic Business Units. “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.”

To date, 52 MAN engines with 542 cylinders from various series have been produced for Norwegian Cruise Line’s vessels, including the world’s first Common Rail large-bore diesel engine in 2007. The company’s next ship with MAN engines will be launched in April 2013.
