It signifies the reliable services that ABB Turbocharging can offer for predictive maintenance,” says Christos Vlachos, Technical Manager of Dynagas Ltd. “We believe that with ABB’s industry knowledge, full-service support and transparency we will be able to achieve increased turbocharger efficiency with minimal downtime, greater predictability in our maintenance budget plan and reduced operating costs.”
