At a signing ceremony at SMM, the international marine trade fair in Hamburg, MAN PrimeServ, MAN Diesel & Turbo’s service division, signed a service framework agreement with DOF ASA, the Norwegian off-shore services company.

Wayne Jones – Head of MAN PrimeServ Diesel – signed the contract on behalf of MAN PrimeServ, with Lars Heine Njåstad – CPO, signing for DOF.

Jones said: “This is one of the pillars of our strategy: to enter into long-term contracts with professional clients who value the support of an OEM. Our global network, technical expertise and a strong commitment from all involved parties were the key factors in this success. When our organisation works together on such projects, we are a formidable team.”

Lars Heine Njåstad said: “With this agreement we get advice on long-term planning for the MAN equipment in our fleet. This increases predictability and we strongly believe that such a strong cooperation will contribute to ensure maximum uptime for our vessels.”

MAN Diesel & Turbo reports that the successful conclusion of the service agreement came about in great part as a result of intensive work carried out by PrimeServ teams in Norway, Holeby (Denmark), Brazil and Augsburg. Mikael Adler, Managing Director of MAN Diesel & Turbo, Norway said: “We are confident that the new framework agreement with DOF will be a great success and that it will form the basis for future agreements with other customers.”
