ABB is the world leader in turbocharging diesel and gas engines in the 500 kW plus power range. About 190'000 ABB turbochargers are in operation today, on ships, in power stations, on locomotives and in heavy-duty construction and mining vehicles.
After a turbocharger has been installed and is running on an engine, customers rely on fast and efficient support being available around the clock. Should a turbocharger fail, the engine concerned will lose up to 75% of its power. Downtime for a ship is extremely costly. Shipping companies therefore want to be able to count on thorough, reliable maintenance and service, no matter where a vessel is located. With its more than 100 service stations around the world, efficient spare parts organization, modern communications technology and well trained personnel, ABB Turbocharging is equipped to meet these challenges whenever and wherever necessary.
