ABB, Wuchang Shipbuilding Team Up on Green Ships

Power and automation technology group ABB has signed an agreement with China’s Wuchang Shipbuilding Group to cooperate on developing greener ships and digital solutions.

Under the deal to deepen cooperation, ABB said that the partnership will help Wuchang Shipbuilding Group manufacture “highly efficient and technologically advanced vessels.”

“Chinese shipyards are diversifying their portfolios and ABB’s long history of working in the icebreaking and cruise sectors is particularly relevant to China’s ship builders,” Alf Kare Adnanes, head of ABB’s Marine and Ports business in China, said.

“This agreement is a result of our commitment to the Chinese market and it will lead to a new generation of greener and smarter vessels being built in China,” Juha Koskela, Managing Director of ABB’s Marine and Ports business, said.
