Open Automation initiatives are revolutionizing the status quo of today’s control systems, as an answer to the many challenges that the hydropower industry must overcome.

Open Automation is the future

Global industries agree that Open Automation is the way forward, and the reason is simple. Open standards prevent end users from being locked into closed proprietary control systems, which do not integrate (or poorly integrate) components from other vendors. 

The end user is confined to the vendor’s control system and control products, affecting costs and efficiency.

As the hydropower market changes, the ABB Ability™ Symphony® Plus distributed control system is the perfect partner for customers on their journey towards Open Automation.
