Never let a turbocharger overhaul interrupt your power generation

Whether you’re in power generation or relying on generators to power your business, you can’t afford to be without your engines. So don’t be. At turbocharger service time, or in an emergency, ABB’s Turbo UptimeCare service agreement prioritizes your uptime with a complete swap of the turbocharger, to get your engine and your operation up and running again. No waiting, complete confidence.

Assured availability– guaranteed access to a local pool of turbochargers, maintained by ABB. Order an exchange unit for planned maintenance or on an express basis in case of emergencies.

Clear scope of overhaul –defined scope of service to be carried out on the removed unit.

Option to upgrade– receive an upgraded turbocharger as the exchange unit if you need greater performance.

LET’S TALK. Tell us your challenges and together we'll design the service agreement that will optimize your operations.

“One engine going down, of a typical size of 1-2 Megawatts, would create a loss of revenue somewhere in the region of 20-25,000 ringgits [$5-6000 USD] per day.” 

Frequently asked questions


Is the exchange unit also available in case of an unexpected maintenance event such as a breakdown?

Yes, the unit can be delivered within 2 days.

Are there any additional costs to be expected when going for the Fixed-Price Overhaul?

A Fixed-Price Overhaul will cover absolutely all maintenance costs (parts and labour) and the availability of the exchange unit (transportation depending on the agreement terms). Repairs due to breakdowns will be invoiced separately. 

What if some services do not require an exchange unit (e.g. downtime of a full week is acceptable)?

Turbo UptimeCare foresees the use of an exchange unit for each and every overhaul. It is not possible to request a price discount case-by-case should an exchange unit not be necessary.

Is it allowed to used a self-defined time between overhauls deviating from ABB's recommendations?

General ABB service recommendations, including the time between overhaul, must be adhered to when the service is performed as part of a Turbo UptimeCare agreement.

As a customer, can I use my own exchange units as part of a Turbo UptimeCare agreement?

All exchange units used in a Turbo UptimeCare agreement are property of ABB. Customer may propose to sell their exchange units to ABB prior to agreement start.

How well ahead does the maintenance event have to be planned?

A joint quarterly planning is needed to ensure readiness from both sides. Customer may confirm the precise date of overhaul up to a few days prior to wished overhaul date.
