MME Group supports "A Longer Life" for next generation of Luxury Cruise Vessels
MME Group has secured multiple orders for solutions that protect the newest generation of luxury cruise vessels built by MV WERFTEN (Germany) against corrosion and marine growth. The yard's "Global Class" and "Endeavor Class" vessels will be outfitted with MME Group's systems.
Recently, MME Group inked the deal for the design, supply and commissioning of sacrificial anodes (SA), Impressed Current Cathodic Protection (ICCP) and Impressed Current Anti-Fouling (ICAF) systems for the Endeavor Class luxury expedition yacht (yard number 124) that MV WERFTEN builds for Crystal Cruises. Both the shipyard and Crystal Cruises are subsidiaries of Genting Hong Kong Ltd.
Back in August 2017, MV WERFTEN already awarded the first contract for the Global Class 1 and 2 (yard numbers 125 & 126) with comparable scope to MME Group. The yard builds these 201,000 GT, 340 meter cruise vessels for Star Cruises, which is also a subsidiary of the Genting holding.
“In close cooperation with the owner, MV WERFTEN chose MME Group as supplier for these innovative projects. The technical solutions, the long list of references and the price convinced,” said Mr. Bibow, team leader “Electric” in the purchasing department”.
Eric Bouman, Sales Manager for MME Group’s Cathodic Protection & MGPS Division: “MME Group has broad experience in protecting all vessel types against corrosion and marine growth. Cruise ships are no exception. We see these deals as a natural next step in this market, where long term safety and ROI of the vessels are crucial”.
