Wartsila and ABB Sign Service Agreement for Turbochargers

ABB Turbocharging

Wartsila and ABB have signed an agreement to expand their cooperation in lifecycle service offerings. ABB has granted Wartsila authorized service provider status for standard maintenance of ABB turbochargers installed with 4-stroke engines.

As a result customers will benefit from enhanced engine performance optimisation over the lifecycle, according to a prepared statement from Wartsila. Furthermore, continuous development of turbocharger upgrade packages and future digital offerings will lead to improvements in fuel efficiency, uptime, and operational costs. This cooperation will also further increase the depth and breadth of the maintenance offering, providing higher availability and agility, the company said.

The sevice agreement is for six years, covering standard maintenance and performance optimisation of turbochargers. The new agreement is an evolution of the long-term cooperation in the field in force since 2005. ABB has the largest turbocharger population in the Wartsila installed base with 27,000 turbochargers on 4-stroke engines.

The agreement will result in 25 authorised Wartsila turbocharger workshops with an expanded service and maintenance offering. This is in addition to the 110 existing ABB turbocharging service stations around the globe.
