Princess Cruises awards Wärtsilä long term service contract

Princess Cruise ShipJULY 9, 2012 — Wärtsilä has been awarded a long-term service agreement by Princess Cruise Lines Ltd. covering seven Princess Cruise Lines vessels. Each cruise ship is powered by Wärtsilä 46 common-rail engines.

The broad scope of services covers technical management and logistics support, spare parts for scheduled engine maintenance, workshop services, an on-board technical advisor during major overhauls, annual training of the engine room crew, continuous condition monitoring of equipment and reporting, and bi-monthly technical visits to each vessel.

"This agreement optimizes the maintenance schedules for these seven vessels, and provides the customer with technical expertise at a fixed budget price," says Andy Edwards, Wärtsilä's VP, Strategic Accounts. "In particular, Wärtsilä's deep know-how in the field of common-rail technology was a key factor in the award of this contract."
Wärtsilä says that tailor-made agreements with a wider scope of services that extend beyond the traditional standard are increasingly becoming more common in the marine industry.
