Are IMO regulations tough enough to keep national governments from imposing stricter measures?

Only partly
No--expect a slew of regional regs!

MAN Diesel PrimeServ adds New York Service Center

MAN Diesel says that a newly established New York Service Center located in Brooklyn, New York, will be extending the maintenance capabilities of MAN Diesel PrimeServ North America

H.W. Ramberg Incorporated (HWR) will enhance MAN Diesel's technical expertise and support with its highly skilled personnel and equipment.

MAN Diesel thereby extends its capabilities to provide timely and professional after-sales service to all customers calling on the east coast ports.

HWR's 80 years of service experience in the maritime community--over 35 years as an MAN Diesel Authorized Repair Shop for reconditioning and exchange--will continue to provide support to MAN Diesel's customers.

HWR was incorporated on July 1, 1925 with the vision to effectively carry out maintenance aboard ships in dock, minimizing the delays associated with repair stops.

During the company's first decades, it developed marine and diesel repair and the first agreement with Burmeister & Wain Engineering Company Limited A/S (B&W) was signed in May 1972.

The agreement was expanded upon the acquisition in 1979 of B&W by the MAN AG Group.

HWR thus became an Authorized Repair Shop for Augsburg, Germany and Copenhagen, Denmark, which has continued to present day.

Mr. Tore Pedersen, Director MAN Diesel PrimeServ, New York will lead the team providing a full range of services, including component reconditioning and spare parts provision to customers for:

Two - Four Stroke Engines Marine Gen-sets Stationary Power plants Propulsion Systems Control Systems Turbochargers

MAN Diesel PrimeServ New York joins MAN Diesel North America's existing facilities in Fort Lauderdale, Houston, Los Angles and Toronto.
