ABB, Wuchang Ship Building join hands for green ships

ABB, Wuchang Ship Building join hands for green ships
ABB and Wuchang Ship Building Group have signed a strategic cooperation with an emphasis on developing greener ships and digital solutions.

The collaboration will utilise ABB’s power and propulsion expertise along with its focus on maritime software, helping the Chinese shipyard 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 shipbuilders,” said Alf Kare Adnanes, head of ABB’s marine and ports business in China.

Wuchang Ship Building, an affiliate of China Shipbuilding Industry Corp (CSIC), has experience in the construction of research and offshore vessels.

Juha Koskela, managing director of ABB’s marine and ports business, believed that the collaboration will “lead to a new generation of greener and smarter vessels being built in China.”
