Thorsten has been heading up the Product Line Upgrades of ABB Turbocharging for more than two years. In this role, he is tasked with managing and growing ABB’s global turbocharger upgrades business in varied industries including power generation, marine and oil & gas.
According to Thorsten, upgrades signal a paradigm change that started a few years ago. In his own words: “An upgrade is about increased efficiency and performance in the long-term. It goes beyond just capital investment for regular maintenance and aims at optimizing total cost of ownership”.
To master the challenges that come with this task, Thorsten draws on his versatile nature. Building a convincing business case for our customers is just as important as overcoming the technical difficulties when implementing advanced technology into existing installations – and all this in a very competitive environment.
