MTU, Navantia Sign Cooperation Agreement
The German propulsion specialist MTU Friedrichshafen and the Spanish shipbuilder Navantia signed a strategic long-term cooperation agreement.
The agreement extends the two corporations’ existing cooperation. Navantia selected the Tognum Group company MTU Friedrichshafen as a primary partner for its ships’ propulsion systems.
In addition to the existing license agreements for the commercialization and manufacturing of MTU Series 396, Series 956 and Series 1163 marine engines, a common training center will also be established. The training center will serve as a learning ground for MTU and Navantia employees and customers, as well as service dealers, all of which will be trained in engine maintenance and service.
Both companies also plan to offer Through Life Support – a maintenance concept for the complete ship – to Navantia customers. MTU will support this concept with its service offerings for the propulsion systems and with its world-wide service network.
