ABB national roadshow kicks off in Xiong’an new area

2018-03-06 - ABB demonstrates leading products and solutions for all segments
On March 6, 2018, the ABB National Roadshow kicked off in Xiong’an new area. The same day an ABB Ability Smart City Seminar was held in Xiong’an to present ABB Ability solutions and other leading technologies supporting the construction of smart cities. Segment customers from Xiong’an New Area and James Zhao, lead division manager of Electrifications Products of ABB in China, attended the event.

With the curtain rising on the construction in Xiong’an, ABB, as the world leading provider of comprehensive products and solutions for smart city applications showcased its Ability Electrical Distribution Control System, a cloud-based platform that processes data from a site’s electrical equipment to deliver analysis and make recommendations to optimize the performance of the electrical system. It enables remote monitoring of energy consumption and ‘costs at a glance’ to make it easier and faster to implement energy management strategies, reducing operational cost by up to 30 percent, in commercial buildings and infrastructure.

ABB also showcased its innovative ZX0 & ZX2 AirPlus switchgear– the latest eco-efficient medium-voltage gas-insulated switchgear (GIS), featuring compact dimensions and a green alternative to the highly potent SF6. AirPlus has the same technical and reliability qualities of conventional GIS, with a global warming potential of zero, which helps satisfy the growing need for green technologies with smart features and supports sustainable development.

“ABB is very honored to be a participant in the construction of the Xiong’an new area,” said James Zhao, lead division manager, Electrification Products division, ABB China. “Through expertise in electrification and technology strengthened by digitalization, ABB will fully support the construction of Xiong’an and help to create a green, intelligent, efficient and convenient world-class city.”

The roadshow consists of four exhibition trucks; an Innovation truck focusing ABB Ability, an Exploration truck focusing on standard distribution systems, and two Navigation trucks, one focusing on rail transport and the other on power systems. First stop on the latest tour was made at the Xiong’an new area, the first of 80 cities scheduled for 2018. The ABB Ability Smart City Seminar was the first of more than 100 technical seminars planned for the year covering power, industry, transport and infrastructure.

At the ABB Ability Smart City Seminar, attendees discussed Xiong’an’s smart city solutions, including a micro grid and distributed energy management solution, a digital distribution network solution, a power management solution, health asset management and intelligent operation and maintenance.
