ABB Marine & Ports is expanding its global reach and service capabilities with local divisions in Turkey and Saudi Arabia.

In both countries, ABB is prioritising local talent development and ensuring that strong support is always available to owner, shipyard, terminal and ship agent customers.

“ABB has a long-standing history in both Turkey and Saudi Arabia, and expanding our presence in both countries with two new ABB Marine & Ports local divisions reflects our commitment to supporting the global maritime industry through the country-specific delivery of world-class technology and service,” said Juha Koskela, division president, ABB Marine & Ports.

The shipbuilding segment in Turkey is a hive of activity – particularly for smaller and short-sea vessels, where ABB has recently provided systems for two Turkish-built windfarm service vessels delivered to Louis Dreyfus Armateurs, a double ended ferry delivered to Torghatten Trafikkselskap, and a live fish carrier due delivery to FrøyGruppen in 2023.

In Saudi Arabia, ABB is supporting the developing shipbuilding sector, in alignment with the kingdom’s ambitions to diversify its economy and energy sector under Saudi Vision 2030 and the In-Kingdom Total Value Add programme. Saudi-based customers will gain direct access to ABB’s technical and commercial solutions through local engineers, as well as through the ABB Ability Collaborative Operations network.
