ABB Turbocharging to Service CSCL’s Fleet

Shanghai-based containerized transportation company China Shipping Container Lines (CSCL) has signed an Operation Performance Package service agreement with ABB Turbocharging, part of the power and automation technology group ABB Group.

Under the contract, ABB Turbocharging will service and provide spare parts for 113 turbochargers on 23 vessels, including 51 TPL type and 62 VTR type turbochargers.

Added to existing service agreements, ABB now services over 300 turbochargers for CSCL.

CSCL has previously signed two OPAC service agreements with ABB Turbocharging, firstly for 60 turbochargers in 2012, and two years later a second contract was concluded covering the service of 56 turbochargers.

“We own a fleet of 74 vessels managed by ourselves, therefore ensuring they are operating at optimum performance is crucial to our business. We rely on ABB to ensure that any potential turbocharger problems are not allowed to mature and to help us minimize overall vessel downtime,” said a representative from the Technology and Maintenance Division, China Shipping Container Lines.

The two companies signed a further Maintenance Management Agreements (MMA) in addition to the three OPAC contracts, which includes service of the turbochargers on board the container ship, The Globe.

At the time of launch in early 2015, The Globe, at 19,100 TEU, was the largest container ship in the world, and still remains the longest container vessel in operation.
