New service point for turbochargers opens in Yangon

Bringing ABB closer to its customers and strengthening local footprint in the rapidly emerging market

In keeping with its commitment to customer proximity and service excellence, ABB recently opened a Turbocharging Service Point in Yangon, Myanmar. The service point offers customized turbocharging solutions for end users to maximize performance and safety over their engines’ lifetime.

Myanmar is a country with real opportunities for growth with strong demand in power and infrastructure. Uninterrupted performance of power plants and asset-intensive industries along with a stable distribution grid is critical to the growth of the economy. Leading-edge technology and innovation such as ABB’s turbochargers enables our customers to perform better and produce fewer emissions.

“The new turbocharging service point enables us to deliver our advanced technologies and better serve our customers to help them achieve highest operational efficiencies,” said Chaiyot Piyawannarat, Managing Director of ABB in Thailand, Cambodia, Laos and Myanmar. “We are pleased to strengthen our presence and contribute further to our customer base in Myanmar and also to serve the country’s growing economy and vibrant population.”

With more than 100 ABB-owned service stations in more than 50 countries worldwide and more than 200,000 ABB turbochargers in operation across the globe on ships, power stations, gen-sets, diesel locomotives and large, off-highway vehicles, ABB Turbocharging has the largest service network coverage in the industry.

ABB has been active in Myanmar since 2014 and the company’s turbocharging business secured its first order of spare parts from Myanmar Railways in 2015, and the first service order from a power plant in 2016. Recently, Yangon Electricity Supply Corporation (YESC), part of the Ministry of Electricity and Energy in Myanmar, chose ABB technologies and expertise to help stabilize the city’s power grid and increase reliability for the millions who depend on it.
