ABB Turbocharging, has signed long-term service agreements with three leading marine and offshore transport firms covering a total of 400 turbochargers globally. The service contracts span a period of several years and include turbocharger monitoring, regular servicing and preventive maintenance.

Each of the three companies: DOF Group, Teekay, and Torghatten ASA has signed a Maintenance Management Agreement (MMA) with ABB Turbocharging in Norway. DOF Group is an international group of companies which owns and operates a fleet of 70 supply and subsea vessels. Teekay is one of the world’s largest marine energy, transportation, storage and production companies. Torghatten ASA is a Norwegian shipping company with ship operations which include car and passenger ferries.

Through signing these service agreements, ABB Turbocharging takes full responsibility for planning and scheduling turbocharger servicing. The agreement also includes monitoring for early warning of upcoming service requirements. Customers gain a good overview of their service needs, leading to decreased engine downtime and more predictability in operating expenses.

“Timely and preventive maintenance is significant in optimizing turbocharger product lifetime, so we are delighted that these customers have chosen our MMA agreement, enabling us to work more closely with them for maintenance of their turbocharging products.” says Truls-Magnus Lindseth, Head of Turbocharging Scandinavia.

“The agreements validate the importance of relationships between customers and original equipment manufacturers. With ABB scheduling service intervals and using original parts plus the insight from our product database which tracks turbocharger running hours and service interval history, customers can expect greater predictability and minimal downtime.” Lindseth continues.

Investing in proactively planned, and scheduled OEM maintenance is an increasing trend amongst end-user turbocharging customers as they seek ways to improve cost management. More than 400 customers globally have already entered into similar service contracts with ABB Turbocharging to ensure optimized performance of their products.

Within the ABB Turbocharging network of over 100 service centers in more than 50 countries, there are three located in Norway: Bergen, Oslo and, most recently, Tromso.
