Hamburg, Rolls-Royce Expands Service Network

September 7, 2010

Rolls-Royce continued the expansion of its global marine services network with the ground-breaking for a new facility in Hamburg, Germany.

The global marine services network is dedicated to helping customers maximize the operational capability of their vessels and manage their costs most effectively. The network now includes facilities in 29 countries and employs thousands of support staff, engineers and technicians around the world.

The site will be home to a 2,000 square metre Marine Service Centre providing repair and overhaul expertise to its German customers. Rolls-Royce will invest $6m in the new centre, which will employ up to 70 people when fully operational. The new site benefits from being located within one of Europe’s busiest commercial ports.

Expected to open in 2011, the facility will feature specialist machining capability and provide a range of repair services, including in-house winch repairs, propeller blade polishing, and root machining. It will also have extensive overhaul capacity enabling routine work to be carried out on tunnel thrusters, steering gears, low pressure hydraulic motors, and hydraulic control valves and pumps.

The facility will also integrate the design and production of the Rolls-Royce range of Intering tank stabilization equipment. The new Hamburg service centre will replace the existing marine offices and workshops located at Hamburg Freeport Area and the northern suburbs of Hamburg.

Last year, Rolls-Royce opened six new marine services centres in key markets across North America, South America, Europe and the Middle East.
