MAN PrimeServ China teams up with local shipyard
A new PrimeServ Service Station/Workshop was opened on Liuheng Island,Zhoushan, China. The 560-sqm Workshop is located within Zhoushan Xinya Shipyard Co., Ltd, the biggest privately-owned shipyard in China.
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 PrimeServ workshop on behalf of their respective companies.
The launch of the new PrimeServ service station will ensure more prompt service for ship owners calling at Xinya Shipyard for dockings and repairs.
