Marine Service GmbH awarded „Partner of the year“ by MEYER Group

Marine Service GmbH has been awarded „Partner of the Year“ by MEYER Group for outstanding performance, competence and commitment for the year 2018.

Christian Krämer, Chairman of Marine Service GmbH, received the award during the annual “Partner of the Year” gala in Papenburg, Germany, on 9 May 2019.

Every year Meyer Werft invites about 200 out of its about 6,500 total suppliers to the award gala and rewards its very best suppliers with the Partner of the Year award on the basis of a rating system based on the suppliers’ performance in terms of price, reliability and quality per ship and most importantly on the suppliers’ overall annual performance.

„We feel very honored to receive this award” Krämer declares. “And I am extremely proud of the outstanding result my team has achieved in supporting MEYER Group in the field of LNG. We are looking forward to continuing this excellent relationship with MEYER Group.”

In December 2018, Marine Service GmbH successfully delivered the LNG fuel gas system for the “AIDAnova” which was built at Meyer Werft in Papenburg for the cruise operator AIDA Cruises of Carnival Corporation. The “AIDAnova” is the world’s first cruise vessel operating both at sea and in port on liquefied natural gas (LNG), the most environmentally friendly and lowest-emission fossil fuel available today.

As one of the major technology leaders in the introduction of LNG as a fuel for the marine industry, Marine Service is a comprehensive supplier of highly complex LNG fuel systems and maintains its own LNG technology development and research test facility.

Successful delivery of LNG fuel gas system for “AIDAnova”

Hamburg based Marine Service GmbH has successfully delivered the LNG fuel gas system for the recently delivered “AIDAnova” which is the world’s first cruise vessel operating both at sea and in port on liquefied natural gas (LNG), the most environmentally friendly and lowest-emission fossil fuel available today.

The ship has been built at Meyer Werft in Papenburg for the cruise operator AIDA Cruises of Carnival Corporation.

Marine Service GmbH was entrusted with the design and delivery of the fuel gas supply system. The main components supplied by Marine Service GmbH are LNG pumps, gas compressors, cryogenic valves, vaporizers and superheaters as well as glycol water modules, which use the waste heat from the main engines and supply it to the vaporizers and superheaters to evaporate and heat up the fuel gas. Furthermore, all electrical components including the pneumatic interfaces and the PLC controlled automation system are in the scope of supply of Marine Service GmbH. The system is designed in a way that if one component fails, the level of redundancy is high enough that a gas operation is still possible and safe. Marine Service GmbH supplied the operation manuals and trained the LNG plant operators of the shipyard and the crew on site during commissioning.
