Drydocks World houses ABB Turbocharging Service Point

DUBAI: Drydocks World announced today that ABB’s first-ever Middle Eastern Turbocharging Service Point is now operational inside its Dubai-based facility. The new Turbocharging Service Point will promote the sharing of mutual benefits to enhance the business of both companies, ensuring 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.

Khamis Juma Buamim, Chairman of Drydocks World and Maritime World, said, “We are delighted to further strengthen our relationship with ABB Turbocharging. The Service Point will 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 can utilise the services provided through our 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.” “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. 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,” said John Fyfe, ABB Area Manager, Middle East and North East Africa.

Drydocks World has been working with ABB Turbocharging, and now ABB engineers and equipment will be permanently based inside the Drydocks World’s new Service Centre. ABB is a multinational corporation headquartered in Zurich, Switzerland, operating in robotics and mainly in the power and automation technology areas.
