Retrofitting refers to the addition of new technology or features to older systems, for example:

  • Power Plant retrofit, improving power plant efficiency / increasing output / reducing emissions
  • Home energy retrofit, the improving of existing buildings with energy efficiency equipment
  • seismic Retrofit, the process of strengthening older buildings in order to make them earthquake-resistant
  • Naval vessels often undergo retrofitting in dry dock to incorporate new technologies, change their operational designation, or compensate for perceived weaknesses in their design or gun plan.


    Benefits of a retrofit

    • Saving on Capital Expenditure while benefiting from new technologies
    • Optimization of existing plant components
    • Adaptation of the plant for new or changed products
    • Increase in piece number and cycle time
    • Guaranteed spare parts availability
    • Reduced maintenance costs and increased reliability
