Whilst at the Meyerwerft shipyard in Papenburg, Germany, Ritec Marine Services will protect all glass on-site with award-winning ClearShield® ‘non-stick’, easy-clean surface treatment. ClearShield® is proven to resist harsh sea salt contamination as well as dirt so significantly help preserve beautiful views from passenger cabin windows. The additional benefit of ClearShield-protected glass is that maintaining it requires less time, effort and manpower.

For this particular project, Ritec Marine Services will treat the glass in a specific order depending on the supplier. The glass suppliers include Brombach + Gess GmbH & Co. KG of Germany, BOHAMET S.A. of Poland and Somec S.p.A. of Italy as well as orders directly from Norwegian Cruise Line. In total, 23,000m2 of glass will be protected with ClearShield® by Ritec Marine Services.

The Norwegian Encore has a gross tonnage of 169,145 gt. With 20 decks, this cruise liner has a 4,000-passenger capacity, and its maiden voyage is scheduled for next month.
