Industry Database

ABB turbochargers are helping support optimal performance and fuel efficiency for one of the world’s largest container ships COSCO Shipping Universe and the other five units in the series.

COSCO Shipping Lines Co Ltd has selected ABB turbochargers for all main and auxiliary engines across six 21,000 teu container ships being delivered for the Universe series by 2019.

“The ABB turbochargers on COSCO Shipping Universe will support maximum performance and fuel efficiency, in addition to contributing to COSCO Shipping Lines pursuing green shipping practices for long-term success,” said Oliver Riemenschneider, managing director, ABB Turbocharging.

Servicing support

COSCO Shipping Universe, the first flagship mega container ship in the Universe series, was delivered in June 2018 by Jiangnan Shipyard (Group) Co. Ltd.

The vessel is equipped with three ABB A180-L two-stroke turbochargers to match the diesel main engine and four ABB TPL67-C33 4-stroke turbochargers to match four auxiliary engines.

Key benefits for ABB’s A100 series include compliance with IMO Tier II and Tier III emission limits, reduced fuel consumption, long intervals between inspections, routine maintenance and overhauls and reduced engine room noise.

The TPL-C series, respectively, has been designed by ABB to meet growing market demand for greater power, efficiency and long operational life.

In addition to its outstanding fuel savings and low emissions capabilities, the TPL-C series boasts a modular design with minimised spare parts for easy installation and service.
