MAN PrimeServ upgrades turbochargers on four Cruise liners of  Royal Caribbean Cruises


MAN PrimeServ won a contract to add 30 turbochargers aboard four cruise liners of  Royal Caribbean Cruises.  It will also provide attachment kits and technical support.

The Grandeur of the Seas and Enchantment of the Seas ships are currently powered by four 12V 48/60 MAN engines, which will now be fitted with 16 TCA55 turbochargers, while the Horizon and Zenith vessels will be retrofitted with four NA40/S and ten NA34/S turbochargers.  The installation of the first retrofit will be done aboard Enchantment of the Seas in December.

MAN PrimeServ senior vice-president Wayne Jones said: “This turbocharger upgrade will not only boost engine performance but also extend engine life and support the entire operation both from a technical and cost perspective.  In the end, it’s an investment in sustainability.”

Royal Caribbean international marine operations senior vice-president Gregory Purdy added: “Our ships are the best and most innovative in the world.  Thus we are always eager to explore new solutions to increase their performance.  We put high expectations in this turbocharger upgrade.”
