Increased availability of the installations
ABB strives to continuously increase the component lifetime. Using high-quality spare parts management, we are able to clients what spare parts are needed to minimize unnecessary downtime. Since parts are not infinitely immune to wear and tear, clients need to know how to achieve maximum availability throughout their lifetime.
The main equipment normally has a longer lifetime compared to control system equipment. Replacements are normally directly exchangeable without design changes. However, in some cases, minor updates might be necessary and are therefore offered case by case to the customer if required.
Control System Equipment
The control platform for FACTS applications is continuously improved and new controls system platforms are developed to improve performance and functionality.
ABB continuously monitors the different parts and components included in the system to have early information when components are moving into limited status. The right part - in the right place - at the right time, is our commitment.
