The service agreement will be signed in October 2012.


The agreement will promote sharing of mutual benefits to enhance business of both companies, ensure quick turbocharger service to customers in the yard and offer one-stop ABB turbocharger solutions at Drydocks World- Dubai. As per the agreement, ABB Turbocharging Dubai will provide international factory warranties to all service jobs done at Drydocks World, including dedicated machines and engineers at a workstation within the shipyard facility. Over 100 ABB Service Stations worldwide will also provide assistance to Drydocks World if required, giving it the advantage of accessibility to a quick response and global services.


H.E. Hisham Abdulla Al Shirawi, 2nd Vice Chairman, Dubai Chamber of Commerce and Industry stated that the signing of the agreement on the sidelines of the Dubai Chamber Trade Mission to SMM 2012, came in line with the mission’s aim of establishing new business partnerships, exchanging of experiences and innovations in the maritime sector.

“We welcome this agreement as it directly supports Dubai’s maritime sector while enhancing the position of Dubai as a transshipment hub in the region. It goes out to showcase the competitive advantages and maritime facilities offered by the emirate as this also caters to Dubai Chamber’s strategic objective of creating a favourable business environment while promoting Dubai as an international business hub,” said Al Shirawi.


 “Given the strategic importance of the Drydocks World and Dubai to our mutual customers, this initiative provides onsite accessibility to key equipment required for the overhaul of Turbochargers thus allowing for quick turnaround times and onsite technical support round the clock,” said John Fyfe, Area Manager Middle East & North East Africa.
