PREDICTABILITY DRIVES UPTAKE OF TURBOCHARGER SERVICE AGREEMENT

PREDICTABILITY DRIVES UPTAKE OF TURBOCHARGER SERVICE AGREEMENT

Wednesday, November 10, 2021 

ABB Turbocharging has welcomed the 50th customer for its Turbo LifecycleCare annual service agreement as operators in the marine and power sectors seek to maximise uptime while benefitting from predictable maintenance costs and OEM service.

The full-scope service agreements, suitable for main and auxiliary engine turbochargers in the marine sector, are based on a fixed price per running hour covering standard spare parts, wear and tear and labour.

Turbo LifecycleCare was launched in 2017 and since then has provided customers with confidence that their costs will reflect actual running hours. One early adopter is bulk carrier operator Equinox Maritime, a Turbo LifecycleCare customer since 2018. According to technical manager Leontios Pitaoulis, the service provides assurance of quality maintenance at the hand of ABB Turbocharging engineers.

Pitaoulis said: “Reliability and uptime are of utmost priority for our operations. With ABB’s Turbo LifecycleCare service agreement, all spare parts planning and servicing are conducted on time, efficiently and within fixed budget. This agreement has given me peace of mind on turbochargers so I can focus on other important operative needs.”

Dirk Balthasar, Head of Global Service Sales, ABB Turbocharging, said: “Our Turbo LifecycleCare agreements address customers’ needs for service plannability and financial predictability. With these agreements we make sure that our customers can focus on the essentials of their business, while we take care of their turbochargers in terms of service scheduling and execution – with fixed budget and no surprises from day one.”

To date, ABB Turbocharging has secured Turbo LifecycleCare contracts for a wide range of customers valued at around US$ 125m in total.
