The marine industry is one of ABB Turbocharging’s largest fields of application. Our turbochargers help to power all types of ships, large and small, including container ships, tankers, cargo vessels, cruise ships, tugboats, and many more.
The marine market is currently in a challenging holding pattern that is interspersed with pockets of activity. Growth is expected to stay modest for the foreseeable future. Our customers struggle with limited financing, heightened competition for fewer opportunities and the ever-increasing price of fuel, which accounts for 70 percent of all operating costs.
Our strategy in marine is therefore to provide solutions that respond directly our customers' challenges now and prepare their applications for the market of tomorrow. Our major foci thus include fuel consumption, emissions, efficiency, reliability, service and technical innovation.
