MAN Opens New Service Station in Zhoushan
Germany based engine manufacturer MAN Energy Solutions opened a new service station/workshop on Liuheng Island, Zhoushan, China. The 560-sqm PrimeServ workshop is located within Zhoushan Xinya Shipyard Co., Ltd, the largest privately-owned shipyard in China, and was officially opened on on July 18, 2018.
Jeffrey Ang, Managing Director of MAN Energy Solutions China and Head of Asia Pacific Engine & Marine Systems, and Xia Songkang, General Director of Zhoushan Xinya Shipyard Co., Ltd, unveiled the new workshop at an opening ceremony attended by around 50 participants from major ship owners, partners and shipyards.
“Customer-oriented service is the key to our PrimeServ business,” said Jeffrey Ang at the opening ceremony. “The launch of the new PrimeServ service station will ensure more prompt service for ship owners calling at Xinya Shipyard for dockings and repairs.”
As the first service center acting in cooperation with a local shipyard, the PrimeServ workshop will be staffed with four engineers, one sales manager and four fitters. The service station is customized to MAN’s needs and standards with specialized tools such as a 10-ton overhead crane, dynamic balancing machine, honing machine and lathe. Besides onboard service, MAN PrimeServ will provide repair and overhaul services for diesel engines, propellers and turbochargers with the new facility.
This PrimeServ workshop is part of a service agreement between MAN and Xinya signed during MarinTec China 2017.
