ABB has signed a five-year maintenance agreement with Prestige Cruise Holdings to provide services, parts and support for all turbochargers installed on the eight ships operated by Oceania Cruises(five) and Regent Seven Seas Cruises(three).  

Under the agreement, PCH vessels will be serviced throughout ABB’s global network of turbocharger service stations, located in major ports around the world. The contract is valued at $5.6m.

‘This agreement will help us to proactively maintain all turbochargers on our ships; and ensure that we have the highest quality and most reliable services for this equipment anywhere in the world. It will help us to minimize equipment downtime while improving overall turbocharger performance, to keep our fleet engines in top operating condition,’ said Paolo Mele, svp, marine & technical operations, Prestige Cruise Holdings.

Approximately 200,000 ABB turbochargers are in operation on ships, diesel locomotives and large, off-highway vehicles and in power stations and gen-sets.
