ABB Industries to open new workshop in ASRY, providing certified turbocharger expertise, global warranties, and onsite access to worldwide network


Ship and rig repair specialist ASRY reports that it has signed a co-operation agreement with ABB Industries (LLC), Dubai, a division of ABB Turbocharging, a leader in the manufacture and maintenance of turbochargers for two-stroke and four-stroke engines for various types of vessels. The agreement will see ABB open a new workshop in ASRY, provide international factory warranties from ASRY, and provide onsite accessibility for ASRY customers to ABB’s worldwide Service Network. The agreement was signed by ASRY Chief Executive, Nils Kristian Berge; ASRY Technical Resources and Business Development General Manager, Magdy Mustafa; ABB Local Business Unit Manager and Area Manager Middle East and North East Africa, John Fyfe; Regional Business Development Manager, Shibu Rajamani and Head of Operations and Country Insurance Risk Manager - ABB UAE & Qatar, Nandagopal K.

ASRY Chief Executive, Nils Kristian Berge, called it a “landmark agreement by which ASRY can expand its provision of quality services to its wide range of global customers. 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 ASRY”.

ABB Local Business Unit Manager and Area Manager Middle East and North East Africa, John Fyfe, explained that “as per the Agreement, ABB Turbocharging in Dubai will provide international factory warranties to all service jobs done at ASRY, including dedicated machines and engineers at a workstation within the shipyard facility. ASRY will also benefit from the worldwide accessibility, rapid response and cutting-edge expertise of ABB’s Service Network, which comprises more than a hundred Service Stations in over fifty countries. Given the strategic importance of ASRY 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”.

ASRY Technical Resources and Business Development General Manager, Magdy Mustafa, also confirmed that under the scope of the co-operation agreement, ABB will open a workshop inside ASRY during the April 2014, which will also be able to provide its services to the local market. This will positively contribute in the national income of the Kingdom of Bahrain and provide training and job opportunities to Bahrainis on new types of specialized activities and skills.
