MAN Diesel & Turbo's after-sales division MAN PrimeServ has
signed a maintenance contract with Teekay Shipping, one of the
world's largest marine energy transportation, storage and
production companies.

The new EMC (Engine Management Concept) contract is for the
maintenance of the Oak Spirit, Creole Spirit and Torben Spirit,
sisters from Teekay's 173,400-m3 LNG carrier series. The
agreement covers the provision of spare-parts, maintenance
management and the servicing of each vessel's 2 × 5G70ME-GI (-Gas
Injection) dual-fuel main engines.

Jeffrey Ang, Head of CoC - Engines & Marine Systems, Asia
Pacific - MAN Diesel & Turbo, said, "This agreement is
significant in that it is the first market agreement that
PrimeServ has clinched involving our dual-fuel, two-stroke ME-GI
engines. Furthermore, with Teekay nominating us as their
preferred service provider, this contract will undoubtedly add
momentum to our efforts to expand the EMC's reach within the
gas-engine segment."

According to the terms of the contract, MAN Diesel & Turbo,
Copenhagen will deliver maintenance management and spare parts,
while MAN Diesel & Turbo, Shanghai will take care of the
service provision for the engines.

Jens Seeberg, Head of Retrofit & Upgrade, and Engine
Management, further praised the cooperation between the two
geographically diverse PrimeServ entities that facilitated the
drawing up of the final agreement and called the close
relationship between the locations in PrimeServ's global
organization and its headquarters "an essential prerequisite for
the EMC concept's success."
