SMM, held in Hamburg every two years, is a major event for ABB in the marine industry. It is a great place for us to meet with engine builders, owners, and operators as well as other industry stakeholders who influence our business operations. At SMM in 2016 ABB Turbocharging showed the very newest turbocharger MXP, dedicated for marine auxiliary applications. With digitalization also a major theme of the event itself, we also presented to visitors two new digital applications.

For MXP we have developed an application to support customers in condition based maintenance of the product to meet market demand for a simplified and easy to maintain product.

TurboAid, a new tool which generated significant interest demonstrates the differences and possible risks when using replacement components that have been manufactured by alternative suppliers. For the first time, we have made available data based on simulations of actual turbocharger failures to present this information to customers for improved performance and safe operations of their turbochargers.
