TMC Compressors (TMC) announced it has won a contract from MV Werften to supply a complete compressed air system to two cruise ships the German shipyard group is building for Genting Hong Kong’s Star Cruises.
Under the contract, TMC will manufacture and deliver four 85 KW marine compressors as well as four RD600 air driers to each of the two cruise ships. The equipment will be delivered to the yard in Wismar, Germany, where the ships are being built, according to a statement.
The ships are 204,000 tons each, 340 meters long and are scheduled for delivery in 2020 and 2021, respectively.
“Any equipment supplier to the maritime industries would be proud to deliver technology to what will be the world’s largest cruise ships in terms of passenger capacity. TMC is no different. We have an extensive track record of deliveries to cruise vessels, but it is always exciting – and a stamp of approval – to be able to participate in major projects such as this,” said Per Kjellin, managing director of TMC.
