ABB Turbocharging

ABB Turbocharging is at the helm of the global industry in the manufacture and maintenance of turbochargers for 500 kW to 80+ MW diesel and gas engines.

Latest generation A180-L turbochargers

The ABB turbocharging efficiency benchmark test took place earlier this year on a Hyundai testbed in Korea. Three ABB latest generation A180-L turbochargers, produced by Hyundai under license, were fitted on an 8G95ME-C9.5 engine and the turbocharging efficiency was measured accordingly. The measurement was performed with state-of-the-art wireless measuring equipment to ensure highest data accuracy.

For marine operators the additional 2 percent efficiency increase achieved by the ABB A180-L turbochargers would mean annual fuel savings of up to 35,000 USD per vessel, depending on fuel price and load pro-file. This exceptional efficiency increase was also confirmed and verified by MAN Diesel & Turbo.

As a performance yardstick for low-speed turbochargers, the industry applies the turbocharger effi-ciency benchmark given by MAN Diesel & Turbo, a leading global low-speed engine designer. ABB Tur-bocharging has now proven an exceptional 2% higher efficiency compared to this industry standard.
