Wartsila Secures Five-Year Service Agreement with Prestige Cruise Holdings (USA)

Wärtsilä , the marine industry’s solutions and services provider, has signed a five-year service agreement with US-based Prestige Cruise Holdings, Inc. (Prestige), the parent company of Oceania Cruises and Regent Seven Seas Cruises.

The long-term service agreement covers six vessels, a total of 27 Wärtsilä engines, and has the option to include further vessels in the future. The agreement facilitates the projection of costs associated with the maintenance of Prestige’s cruise fleet, while also minimizing the downtime during routine maintenance and overhauls. The agreement provides a broad scope of services, including maintenance planning, spare parts supply, training, technical surveys, condition monitoring, and workshop services.

New type of agreement

The tailor-made agreement is one of the most comprehensive yet for the cruise industry. The depth and scope of the agreement cover pro-active planning by both companies working in co-operation. It involves dedicated teams from both parties, which will work closely together to ensure the optimal performance of the Prestige fleet.

Wärtsilä’s willingness to assume a large part of the service and logistics activities, while offering a streamlined cost structure, provides the peace of mind that comes with knowing that the quality is the very best,” says Robin Lindsay, Executive Vice President, Vessel Operations, Prestige Cruise Holdings.

We are very excited about this agreement that positions Prestige and Wärtsilä on a path for success in a partnership for continuous improvement,” says Kourtney Dever, Account Manager, Wärtsilä North America, Inc.

The premise of the partnership is based on each company focusing on their area of expertise, while fully co-operating with each other to ensure maximum efficiency. The agreement is extremely comprehensive and is one that extends beyond the traditional standard in the marketplace,” states Tomas Hakala, Vice President Wärtsilä Services, Americas.

TOC Americas

TOC (The Terminal Operations Conference) has long been considered best in class by container terminal operators and their suppliers. Over time, TOC has evolved and whilst they continue to deliver the highest quality technical content in line with their heritage, they also recognise that they must now hear from stakeholders higher up the cargo chain. Therefore, there are now two distinct elements to the event:

The exhibition is a showcase for port & terminal technology and operations plus TECH TOC, the free to attend technical conference aimed at terminal operators and their suppliers. Many suppliers come together to showcase cutting edge solutions to their clients, the terminal operators and ports.

More recently, the events now placed a new focus on the container supply chain making them the premier business and networking event for the stakeholders, including shippers, carriers and 3pl’s as well as the global operators and port authorities. This conversation takes place in the more recently created Container Supply Chain Conference.
