ABB Turbocharging is celebrating its 25th anniversary in the UAE this week.
Established in 1989, the company first started operations in a sub-leased workshop space in Dubai. ABB Turbocharging in the UAE is now a complete service station which can carry out all repair works with 27 employees in three locations.
ABB Turbocharging Dubai provides customers with solutions for land-based diesel power plants with a strong focus on the marine segment in seaports and offshore anchorages at Khorfakkan, Fujairah and shipyards Dubai dry-docks + ASRY, Bahrain.
In 1994, ABB Dubai played a role in establishing the service station in Lahore, Pakistan, catering to the power and gas market. 2003 saw the opening of a new service station in Karachi, Pakistan mainly to cater for the marine market and land-based diesel power plants.
Between 2005 and 2009 ABB Dubai provided 24/7 support for the dredgers in the region, which were busy building islands and construction projects during the boom period.
This year, ABB Dubai opened two new service points at major shipyards; one in Drydocks World Dubai and another in ASRY Bahrain. The two service points have allowed the company to increase utilisation and service market share.
According to the company, ABB Dubai plans to open two new service points in the future; one in Iraq and one in Jordan in order to cater to land based installations in diesel power stations.
John Fyfe, Area Manager Middle East and North East Africa said: “ABB’s commitment to our customers is to listen, understand and tailor our service offering to match their individual needs. Owing to the strong relationship with our customers, we have constantly evolved over the past 25 years, establishing five Service Stations and two Service Points across the region. We have also confirmed plans for two additional Service Points in Iraq and Jordan, all in an effort to support our customers in reducing operating costs and down time”.
