Subsea Global Solutions (SGS) is pleased to announce that it has entered into a new agreement with its long term client Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. (RCCL) to provide underwater hull maintenance and repair services for their fleet of 58 ships trading under six different brands (Royal Caribbean International, Celebrity, Azamara, TUI, Silversea, and Pullmantur). The  new agreement is a continuation of the long term relationship between the two companies.

SGS has been supporting the RCCL Group for more than a decade with various key underwater services spanning from hull cleanings and propeller polishes in strategic locations to very complex repairs world-wide with mission critical gear and equipment like tunnel thrusters, stern seals, stabilizer fins, and rudders.

RCCL VP of Global Marine Operations, Anders Aasen said; “With the new IMO regulations on low-sulphur fuel coming into force as of 1st January 2020, our goal is to have the most energy efficient fleet on water with best possible solution partners in their fields. With SGS supporting our underwater operations on a 24/7/365 basis, our shore and sea staff can focus on delivering a superior service to our guests onboard with no or minimum downtime and the best environmental track record possible.”

SGS Executive Director Harun Duzgoren added; “We are delighted to be given the opportunity to continue supporting RCCL’s fleet and add value to their operations. We are consistently investing into new technology and our people, and are confident that our new online reporting platform, coupled with our growing number of expert diver/technicians (140+) and a network of fully owned offices (13 world-wide), will help RCCL’s efforts in the areas of energy efficiency, digitalization, and environmentally friendly shipping operations.”
