Abstract from DBPedia
    Retrofitting is the addition of new technology or features to older systems, for example: * power plant retrofit, improving power plant efficiency, increasing output or 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.
