Imtech (technical services provider in Europe and on the global marine market) has received a major order from the German shipyard Meyer Werft in Papenburg for the energy efficient heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC) technology on board of two new Norwegian Cruise Line cruise ships. Furthermore, an option has been agreed upon for providing HVAC technology on board two more cruise ships.

Imtech CEO René van der Bruggen: 'High growth expectations distinguish the cruise ship market. For Imtech this will result in numerous orders both for new builds as well as for upgrading and renovating technical solutions on board this type of ships. Clever, intelligent and highly automated total solutions make the realisation of significant amounts of energy savings on board possible while at the same time the passengers' comfort will be optimised. This will enable further growth for Imtech in this market.'

Intelligent HVAC solutions
At 143,500 GT the vessels are the largest cruise ships ever built in Germany. The capacity of each cruise ship totals more than 4,000 passengers. Imtech (Imtech Marine) is responsible for the HVAC technology (all the technical solutions related to heating, ventilating and air conditioning) and will place particular emphasis on energy efficiency as well as on ensuring maximum passenger comfort. Norwegian Cruise Line's next-generation 'Freestyle Cruising' concept is being applied for the first time on both ships. This means that individual passengers can structure the experience of 'cruising' based on their own ideas and preferences. Whether chic or sport-centric, active or passive, culinary or cultural: everything is possible. The ships will be delivered to the shipping company Norwegian Cruise Line in the spring of 2013 and 2014.

Imtech: strong technology partner in the cruise ship market
Imtech is currently also responsible for the HVAC technology on the two Solstice class ships as well as two further large cruise lines, constructed by Meyer Werft for Norwegian Cruise Line. In recent years, Imtech has been involved with HVAC technology solutions on more than 30 large cruise ships in various shipyards. This has led to Imtech currently serving as a leading innovative partner for intelligent and energy efficient HVAC technology in the cruise ship market.
