ABB opens turbocharging unit in Dubai
Dubai, April 2, 2014
Drydocks World has announced that ABB’s first-ever Middle Eastern turbocharging service point is now in operation inside its Dubai-based facility.
An international service provider to the maritime, oil & gas and energy sectors, Drydocks World said the ABB outlet will promote sharing of mutual benefits to enhance business of both companies, ensure enhanced turbocharger service to customers in the yard, and offer one-stop ABB turbocharger solutions at Drydocks World and Maritime World.
ABB’s large global Service Network will also support Drydocks World.
On the launch, Khamis Juma Buamim, the chairman of Drydocks World & Maritime World said, "The service point would definitely improve business volume from turbocharger overhauling and offer enhanced new services and is also part of our strategy of enhancing efficiency and reducing fuel consumption, emissions and building customer satisfaction levels."
ABB, he stated, can utilize the services provided through the Drydocks World's (GOS) Global Offshore Services arm round- the-clock. "The OEM Service Point for ABB turbochargers is located in the yard’s premises and provides an international warrantee. This will be an added attraction to the owners as it improves the convenience for them," he added.
John Fyfe, the area manager for ABB (Mena) said: "In the Middle East, we see the need to be even closer to our customers. We are grateful to Drydocks World for entering into this partnership which will further our plans for expansion in the Middle East, with this new station in Dubai."
ABB’s ‘smart’ turbocharger applications in the marine industry help reduce fuel consumption and emissions while increasing efficiency, reliability, service and support.
In service, ABB’s turbocharging solutions enable customers to save significantly on service costs and spare parts and to extend the lifetime of their applications.
"Thanks in part to the new Service Point at Drydocks World, we now offer the full scope of services needed to maintain ABB turbochargers quickly and professionally, including overhauls. We’re also moving forward with our Middle East expansion plans," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
