ABB acquires Tekomar

ABB Turbo Systems has signed an agreement to acquire the Tekomar Group, headquartered in Winterthur, Switzerland, with the aim of adding Tekomar’s digital system for engine analytics and advisory systems to its ABB Ability maritime digital services portfolio.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The transaction is expected to be closed during Q4 2017, and adds a propulsion performance monitoring system targeted at two-stroke main engines and auxiliary engine applications to ABB’s range of offerings.

The technology will be integrated into ABB’s existing vessel optimisation system, while also offering a platform for greater cooperation with engine licensors and builders. 

“This acquisition is exactly the right fit with the existing strengths and capabilities of ABB in the marine industry, and with our strategic vision for developing value-driven digital solutions,” said Oliver Riemenschneider, managing director, ABB Turbocharging.

“As a global market player, ABB is perfectly positioned to bring to the highly globalised and demanding marine market a holistic digital solution for vessel and ship management. Tekomar’s solution is proven, well-established and a valuable extension to our existing solutions.”

“Our goal is to further empower customers to achieve the benefits of improved performance, reduced fuel consumption, and lower emissions, together with ABB.”{/mprestriction}
