Upgrade to Queen Mary 2 completed

On 27 October 2016 GE’s Marine Solutions an extensive upgrade service to the liners Queen Mary 2. The upgrade service with new technology supplied by GE was completed in just 18 days.

Twelve years after equipping QM2 with original propulsion motors, GE was chosen to carry out multiple upgrade activities on Carnival’s flagship liner, including a controls upgrade, the replacement of oil distribution boxes on steerable pods, modification of harmonic filters and general maintenance on the propulsion plant. GE’s Marine Solutions completed the service earlier than planned, allowing GE to fulfill additional tasks required by the customer.

Tim Schweikert, president & CEO, GE’s Marine Solutions said, “This was a hugely rewarding project. Achieving what we did in 18 days is an example of GE’s commitment and dedication to customers. We highly value our long-term relationship with Carnival and are proud to be chosen once again to provide the service they needed. We look forward to partnering on more projects in the future.”
