Our responsibility runs deep

ABB leverages its electric, automated and digital technologies to enable safer, smarter and more sustainable marine and ports industries

Amid accelerating climate change, emerging-market economic development and urbanization, the need to address environmental concerns with decisive actions is becoming increasingly urgent.

Marine trade volumes are set to triple by 2050 – and with the International Maritime Organization targeting a 50 percent reduction in marine greenhouse gas emissions by the same year as compared with 2008 levels, the shipping industry must find new and environmentally friendly ways to move people and goods. 

ABB Marine & Ports provides solutions from grid to propeller, and ship to gate, including the pioneering Azipod® propulsion, electric and hybrid technologies, port automation and electrification systems and various digital innovations. In its efforts to enhance the sustainability – as well as the safety and efficiency – of maritime and port operations, the division has electrified over 1,500 ships, automated more than 1,300 container cranes and digitally connected over 2,000 vessels and terminals to date.

“At ABB Marine & Ports, our responsibility runs deep. We are committed to transforming our customers' vessels and terminal operations with innovative electric, automated and digital technologies to enable a low-carbon society, and to lead by example to preserve resources and promote social progress.“

- Juha Koskela, Division President, ABB Marine & Ports
