ABB is building a new state-of-the-art robotics campus in Västerås, Sweden, to provide customers with AI-enabled collaborative and industrial robots. The expanded hub, which supports ABB’s “local-for-local” production strategy, will increase production capacity by 50 percent as demand for robotic automation grows across Europe and as customers look to build flexibility and resilience in response to supply chain disruption and labor shortages.
ABB’s new IE5 SynRM Increased Safety motor for hazardous area industries reduces energy losses by up to 40 percent compared to earlier generation IE3 motors. It also runs at lower temperatures than standard designs, prolonging the life of the motor and reducing maintenance needs, and it contains no rare earth materials.
A pilot project between ABB Robotics and US non-profit organization Junglekeepers has demonstrated how cloud technology can make reforestation faster, more efficient and scalable. ABB’s cobot YuMi automated planting tasks in a jungle laboratory in the Amazon, speeding up the process and allowing Junglekeepers’ volunteers to focus on more impactful work.
ABB has launched new CoriolisMaster and ProcessMaster flowmeters that use the same cable for both power and data transmission. As well as saving money and eliminating the need for extra cabling, the new flowmeters reduce the risk of data transmission errors caused by power fluctuations or interruptions.
ABB has expanded its partnership with battery developer Northvolt to provide electrification and automation technologies for the world’s largest battery recycling facility, Revolt Ett. The recycling site will process 125,000 tons of end-of-life batteries and battery production waste each year – making it the largest plant of its kind in the world.
ABB is providing electrical expertise at H2 Energy's 1 GW hydrogen production facility in Esbjerg, Denmark. The plant is one the largest hydrogen developments in Europe and will produce up to 90,000 tons of hydrogen per year – the equivalent of about 1.9 million barrels of oil.
ABB is to deliver complete power, propulsion and automation systems for two newbuild short-sea container ships of global logistics company Samskip Group. The vessels will be among the first of their kind to use hydrogen as a fuel. Both vessels will be operating between Oslo Fjord and Rotterdam, a distance of approximately 700 nautical miles.
Expanding on their long-standing partnership, ABB and Microsoft are working together on the implementation of generative AI technology to help industrial customers unlock insights hidden in operational data. Improved data collection and remediation will enable significant gains in efficiency and productivity, asset reliability, operational safety, lower energy consumption, and reduced environmental impact.
ABB will use the loan from the European Investment Bank to develop next-generation electrical distribution solutions to support the EU’s plan to become net zero by 2050. The EIB said it was supporting ABB because of its long history in developing electrical products and its commitment to promoting practical solutions for greening Europe’s economy.
ABB and WindESCo have signed a strategic partnership for improving the performance and reliability of wind turbines. Leveraging WindESCo’ solutions, the investment will strengthen ABB’s position as a key enabler of a low-carbon society and its position in the renewable power generation sector.
ABB is collaborating with Lhyfe, a world pioneer in the production of renewable hydrogen, and Skyborn, a global leader in renewable energy, to jointly realize and optimize one of Europe’s most ambitious renewable hydrogen projects, SoutH2Port.
The case for industrial energy efficiency lays out the financial and carbon impacts of 10 key energy efficiency actions companies can take, across three strategic pillars: building an efficiency foundation, driving efficiency returns, and gaining efficiency insights.
