The contract, which also covers propulsion unit modernisations and scheduled dry docking services, includes an option to extend the agreement to additional existing vessels, vessels that are currently under construction and future newbuilds.
“Cruise segment customers are increasingly focusing on optimising the life cycle of their fleet and investing in solutions that boost cost efficiency,” noted Heikki Soljama, head of ABB’s Business Unit Marine and Cranes.
The deal encompasses six vessels under RCC’s brands Celebrity Cruises and Royal Caribbean International.
"ABB is a leader in their field and we are investing in their expertise through this relationship to help ensure the optimal life cycle management of our ships,” said William Baumgartner, senior vice president of Marine Operations at Royal Caribbean International. “ABB will help us keep our ships performing at their peak, minimise costs, and improve our overall profitability.”
