Wilhelmsen Wins Contract from Meyer Werft

Wednesday, August 19, 2009

Wilhelmsen Marine Engineering won an order from Meyer Werft in Germany to finalize the cruise ship AIDAblu and two new cruise vessels, NB689 (unnamed) and NB690 (unnamed) being built for the German cruise operator, AIDA Cruises. Under the terms of the deal, Wilhelmsen Marine Engineering's subsidiary, Wilhelmsen Callenberg Fläkt will deliver heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems and related engineering services. The order has an estimated value of EURO 10.4 million.

The company has been involved in AIDA's new building program since 2004 and has delivered HVAC system design and advanced equipment to AIDAdiva, AIDAluna, AIDAbella and AIDAblu. The latest contract with Meyer Werft is very significant, said Mikael Ströby, Wilhelmsen Marine Engineering's director for the new building and cruise segments. "It confirms that we are also competitive in today's tighter market and can meet the exacting demands of leading shipbuilders and operators alike." Prior to the AIDA projects at Meyer Werft, Wilhelmsen Marine Engineering successfully delivered a similar project to the Queen Mary 2, a Cunard vessel and, like AIDA Cruises, a member of the Carnival group.
