ABB India expands footprint with a global service centre for energy saving drives

These drives provide multiple energy optimisation features, are easily commissioned via smartphone, and include features for uninterrupted operations during power fluctuations…


The ABB remote service centre will provide 24x7 access to information and support on drives installed at customer facilities for predictive maintenance and condition monitoring for all industries including power, cement, oil and gas, metals, food & beverage and many other applications. The new centre is the third of its kind in the ABB global footprint and is now fully activated in India. It will support customer installations in India and around the world.

  In India, 31% of total electrical energy is consumed by industrial motors. Drives control the speed of these motors and hence are a key component of enabling energy efficiency and improving productivity. Benefits of such a remote centre include faster identification of potential problems leading to increased uptime of customer assets and ultimately savings in operational costs.

  The new production line manufactures digitally enabled low voltage drives (ACS560 and ACS580 series). The drive information in the cloud can be accessed securely with daily devices like smartphones. Drives are an environmentally friendly option to use energy efficiently while running motors based on their current load instead of running them on full speed continuously. These drives provide multiple energy optimisation features, are easily commissioned via smartphone, and include features for uninterrupted operations during power fluctuations.

  Sanjeev Sharma, CEO and Managing Director, ABB India, said, “This is a reinforcement of our commitment to our nation and customers by establishing a world-class centre using our expertise in digitally enabled technology. We are also pleased to offer the benefits of our digital portfolio to our customers in India and partner them in the next level of their journey to develop a range of future services that will allow customer assets to become digital ready.”
