A Grand Opening For Rolls-Royce
Rolls-Royce has opened its newly expanded and modernized Marine Service Centre in the Port of Rotterdam, The Netherlands. The facility serves customers from the commercial and offshore sectors, as well as the Royal Dutch Navy. It can repair and overhaul the range of Rolls-Royce diesel and gas engines, thrusters, steering gear and propellers.
Rolls-Royce engineers also are able to service and repair vessels while on board, as well as handle maintenance underwater, minimizing the need to dry dock vessels, the company said. Rolls-Royce added that the investment marks the latest stage in the development of a global marine service center network, which comprises repair activities in 34 countries.
The facility, in Pernis, Rotterdam, The Netherlands, originally opened in 2001, and has since expanded, which includes doubling the size of the maintenance workshop space to 1500 m² and modernizing the equipment used to service marine products.
The facility employs 70 people and is also a regional center for the marketing and sales of Rolls-Royce marine products. In Europe, Rolls-Royce is currently constructing marine service centers in Hamburg, Germany, and Gdynia, Poland, both of which are due to open this summer.
