Innovative digital format
To allow full visualization of the processes, as well as transmission, the Microsoft Teams platform was used for screen conferencing and sharing, in addition to microphones and auxiliary cameras. All employees followed the required protocols recommended by ABB's Health and Safety Department.
"ABB is always looking to innovate to better serve our customers and this example with REGAP shows it well - in a time of crisis and uncertainty, we brought together our best technicians to create a safe option in accordance with Petrobras’s standards. The idea was not to penalize the project's flowchart and offer an option to the client," explained Guillen.
