Partnership pushes the boundaries of engine performance
Two international technology experts have signed an agreement to push the boundaries of engine performance and improve lifecycle service offerings.
Wärtsilä and ABB will work more closely together with Wärtsilä being granted Authorized Service Provider status for standard maintenance of ABB turbochargers installed with Wärtsilä 4-stroke engines.
“Being able to look at the whole installation increases its availability and efficiency, optimising service speed and agility. Customers can reduce their operational risk, ensure optimal tuning and save time by being able to overhaul their ABB turbocharger at the same time as the engine,” said Tomas Hakala, Vice President, 4-stroke Engine Services at Wärtsilä Services.
He added that thanks to this new agreement, Wärtsilä will now able to serve its customers even better by offering them ABB turbocharger services coupled with its engine knowhow across 25 locations. This is in addition to the 110 existing ABB Turbocharging Service Stations around the globe.
"This agreement is a logical expansion of the cooperation established for new engine developments, where we jointly aim to push the boundaries of engine performance to new levels,” said Herbert Müller, head of service, ABB Turbocharging.
The new six-year service agreement is an evolution of the long-term cooperation in the field in force since 2005. ABB has the largest turbocharger population in the Wärtsilä installed base with 27,000 ABB turbochargers on Wärtsilä 4-stroke engines.
Currently, more than 100 upgrade solutions on marine and power applications have been successfully commissioned.
