100th Turbo LifecycleCare agreement
  • More than 2,000 turbochargers covered under full scope service agreements delivering predictable maintenance costs
  • Turbo LifeCycleCare delivers fixed costs based on actual running hours four four-stroke engine turbochargers
  • Customers highlight outstanding service and advantage of “no big surprises” in budgeting for service

Accelleron welcomed the 100th customer for its running hours-based service agreement for four-stroke engine turbochargers, Turbo LifecycleCare, last month. More than 2,000 turbochargers supporting main or auxiliary engines across maritime and land-based power generation applications are now covered by the unique agreement structure, which was established in 2017 to deliver predictable maintenance costs and reduced risk for operators.

Turbo LifecycleCare agreements offer foreseeable budgeting and cost-saving efficiency for operators of Accelleron turbochargers. The agreements cover standard spare parts, wear and tear and labor, with Accelleron reducing operators’ risk and administrative burden by assuming responsibility for maintenance planning and scheduling. All service is carried out by accredited Accelleron engineers using Accelleron spare parts, ensuring quality and speed of service.

As the landmark hundredth contract was signed, feedback from existing customers highlights the value that operators derive from Turbo LifecycleCare coverage.

Pleiades Shipping Technical Director Miltos Synefias said:

“What comes to my mind first about Turbo LifecycleCare is ‘no big surprises’ when budgeting for turbocharger maintenance and repair. Turbochargers are overhauled in an organized workshop environment and costs are evenly spread and are mostly predictable. I would like to say well done to Accelleron for inventing and embracing this idea and implementing it in the most professional way.”

EGE Haina Power Plant Regional Director Eddy Gomez added:

“We see great value from Turbo LifecycleCare because we are provided with the latest updates for equipment, along with outstanding service. On top of that we have predictable costs based on how many hours we run on a monthly basis.”

Accelleron Head of Global Service Sales Dirk Balthasar said:

“Turbo LifecycleCare was developed based on the needs of customers looking for a reliable partner who could support them in reducing administrative work related to turbocharger servicing as well as offering a fixed price based on operating hours that made it easy for them to project costs. This milestone shows that our customers find real value from this agreement and continue to trust in the service that only the OEM can provide.”
