Electrification and plant engineering


The efficiency of an industrial plant is influenced by its major mechanical and electrical installations, appropriate planning and engineering. We ensure the selection of the right technologies and products, their correct dimensioning, compliance with environmental conditions as well as the implementation of industry-dedicated smart solutions.

All of this leads to substantial savings in investment and energy consumption adding up to a significant enhancement in a plant’s economy over its life cycle. Viewed as an integrated entity, the plant’s infrastructure includes items like optimized substation and electrical room layouts, cable engineering, grounding systems, fire detection and protection, air-conditioning and ventilation systems, communication systems and much more.

ABB’s electrification solutions are engineered for safety, flexibility, security and the highest operational availability to keep your plant running.

Revamping

The modernization of an existing plant to the latest standards, production and efficiency levels while it is still in operation, demands a completely different set of skills and competencies than building a greenfield plant.

The challenges faced by plant operators make each revamping project unique in its complexity. It can only be successful when the customer’s partner and contractor fully understands the complexity of mineral processing and mining processes, and has the experience necessary to implement these unique solutions within a strictly planned downtime schedule. This is where ABB excels as the world leader in the field.
