MAN Diesel & Turbo has received a US$30 million order from Norwegian Cruise Line, the U.S.-based cruise liner company, to provide engine maintenance for nine of the fleet’s cruise liners.
MAN PrimeServ’s service office in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, U.S.A. will handle the four-year service agreement. During the agreement, two further Norwegian cruise ships will be put into service and will then be incorporated into the contract, MAN said.
To date, 52 engines with 542 cylinders from various series have been produced for Norwegian Cruise Line’s vessels. The company’s next ship, Norwegian Breakaway, will be launched in April 2013.
