ABB to set up turbocharging service point in Cyprus
7 June 2018
ABB Turbocharging, a leading provider of turbocharging systems, and Cyprus-based Multimarine Services (MMS) have agreed to open an ABB Turbocharging Service Point at the MMS shipyard facility at Limassol Port to better serve customers.
ABB Turbocharging and MMS signed the agreement yesterday (June 5) at Posidonia, an international shipping exhibition, being held in Athens, Greece.
The deal confirms the creation of the first turbocharging service point in Limassol to be located at a shipyard, after proactive discussions between ABB Turbocharging Greece & Cyprus and MMS to relocate ABB’s local service facilities, said a statement from the company.
The relocation will support a closer physical pick up point for marine customers, providing convenience and faster access to customised servicing for optimal uptime and fleet productivity, it said.
John Smyrneos, manager, ABB Turbocharging Greece & Cyprus, said: “This is a positive agreement for our company and will enable us to better serve our customers by offering reliable, timely servicing directly from Limassol Port.”
While located on third-party premises, the ABB Service Point is non-exclusive. It is open to all ABB Turbocharging customers across industries including marine, oil and gas, power generation, earthmoving and mining, it added.
Rolf Bosma, head of service sales for ABB Turbocharging, said the facility will add an extra touchpoint for customers across an expansive service network that includes over 100 Service Stations in more than 50 countries.
He said: “This service point will be a valuable addition to our overall service network when it opens in the third quarter of 2018.”
Alex Antippas, director, business development, Multimarine Services, said: “The ABB Turbocharging Service Point is a welcome addition to our shipyard facility.”
“It is a highly valuable service offering and we are confident in the capabilities offered by ABB Turbocharging to deliver quality and sustainable services to our local and international clients,” he said.
ABB Turbocharging’s service philosophy is about enhancing original performance, with customised solutions enabling maximum possible output and highest engine fuel efficiency for lowest total cost of ownership in the long term.
