ABB’s Collaborative Operations for industries

07 March 2018

ABB launches ABB AbilityTM Collaborative Operations for power generation & water. Driven from a new ABB Ability Collaborative Operations Center in Genoa, Italy, the new operating model enables leading power generation and water companies to improve operations and maintenance using digital technologies to collaborate with dedicated, co-located operations experts. The Collaborative Operations Center delivers information insights that can increase customers’ profitability and productivity through better asset performance, higher safety and security, reduced risk and lower costs.

The push toward digitalization has increased the amount of data available to customers. ABB Ability Collaborative Operations uses this data to provide more value to customers through information analytics, making this data more useful for driving decisions that optimize plant and fleet performance. Collaborative Operations provides: 20% extension of machine life by using immediate data analysis to better manage assets, processes and risks; 50% reduction in maintenance costs by using predictive rather than preventive and reactive maintenance practices; and deeper visibility into equipment, plant and fleet performance, enabling customers to better understand performance capability and operating boundaries.
