STX France, Sobrena team on lifecycle services
STX France and Sobrena Ship Repair Yard in Brest signed a cooperation agreement to jointly offer repair, maintenance and conversion expertise for passenger ships under the banner Atlantic Cruise Lifecycle Services.

The groups will pool their know-how in engineering, project management and technical maintenance.

Revitalizations, conversions, regulatory upgrades, energy diagnostics, innovations through the ‘Ecorizon’ research program (energy savings, hydrodynamics, stability, noise and vibration) and spare parts are among the services offered.

STX France and Sobrena have worked together on such complex undertakings as the 2006 pilot project that added an auxiliary diesel engine to the gas turbine ship Celebrity Millennium. Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. went on to similarly convert seven other gas turbine vessels at various locations.
