Vietnam’s National Innovation Center runs on ABB smart building technology

• National Innovation Center (NIC) in Hanoi uses ABB energy management and smart building technology for optimum efficiency and sustainability
• Key facility for Vietnam’s Industry 4.0 strategy will serve as a regional and global innovation hub
• ABB technology providing energy efficiency for the facility, improved safety and well-being for its users

Vietnam’s new National Innovation Center (NIC) in Hoa Lac Hi-Tech Park, Hanoi, will play a key role in connecting the country’s domestic technology ecosystem with global networks, helping accelerate the country’s position as a regional innovation destination. Built to the highest global standards by Vietnam’s Ministry of Planning & Investment, the 4.96-hectare site provides an international conference center and smart building office space for investment funds, major technology companies, and start-ups and SMEs.

The NIC prioritizes eight industrial sectors: smart factories, smart cities, hydrogen, semiconductors, environmental technology, medical devices, digital communications, and cyber security. Providing smart buildings for sectors driving economic growth is an important part of progress towards net zero emissions targets. Building automation and energy management systems can increase energy efficiency by 25-67 percent, reducing operating costs and greenhouse gas emissions – and improving workplace wellbeing.

ABB Vietnam, Vice President of Electrification, Mr Doan Van Hien, said: “This exciting project is supporting government’s their net zero objectives and providing safe, smart, sustainable electrification for the country’s nationally important buildings. ABB's innovative, energy-efficient solutions play a crucial role in making NIC Hoa Lac a smart building, cutting operational costs, and ensuring a safe working environment for its occupants.”
