Imtech Schiffbau-/Dockbau¬technik, headquartered in Hamburg/Germany, will open a new Service Branch Office in the USA in May 2010. The branch will offer the full range of mechanical Imtech Services, e.g. HVAC Conversions, Maintenance, and Spare Parts. Refurbishments for Chillers and Compressors will be done in Imtech’s own workshop. The office will be located in the Ft. Lauderdale Branch of Imtech Marine Group’s subsidiary Radio Holland USA.

“With our new office we can now much better support Cruise Operators with spare parts, maintenance and conversions. In Ft. Lauderdale, our team is close to many of our customers, and will be a direct point of contact for Superintendents.” says Thomas Arlit, Managing Director Imtech Schiffbau-/Dockbautechnik, “Based on the experience of installing HVAC Systems on more than 20 new Cruise Ships since 1988, and many refurbishments, we are able to provide lifecycle-services for Imtech and non-Imtech Systems.”
