ABB explores new ways forward in maintenance, repair and overhauls (MRO) at the 2nd Power MRO Asia Summit 2017

2017-02-24 - Demand in Asia’s power industry is set to grow, and in this fast-growing landscape there are opportunities for both large power developers and smaller providers of services such as maintenance, repair and overhauls (MRO). The industry is indeed buzzing with activity and all OEM mergers, emerging new players, and deepening global partnerships driven by rising demand from Asia. By participating in this event, ABB in Indonesia explore new opportunity in MRO at the 2nd Power MRO Asia Summit 2017 that was held on February 21 – 22, 2017 at Sapphire Hall, JW Marriot Hotel, Mega Kuningan, Jakarta.

The event is one of the platforms to further explain about how Independent Power Producers (IPPs) can take advantage of this landscape to reduce maintenance and repair cost, what new approaches or technologies are available to increase plant availability and lifespan in cost-efficient ways. Through these stimulating roundtable discussions and interactive workshops, ABB also introduces its solutions to a roadmap for new ways to boost asset performance while maximizing maintenance budget. Additionally, the seminars also brought the world-class experts to explain further on scalable maintenance strategies, insider case studies of failure prevention best practices and cutting-edge technologies in proactive maintenance.

On the first day, Anders Annell, ABB Global Power Generation Segment Manager, Robotic and Motion division conveyed his presentation on “Simplifying Maintenance and Saving Energy with New Direct Drive Cooling Tower Motors”. The first day seminar was also attended by Steven Lim, ABB's Head of Robotic & Motion division in Indonesia and Chen Kang Tan, ABB's Manager for Motors and Generators business in Indonesia. Heri Tjahjaputra and Iwan Wijaya (Motors and Generators), Ray Liyanto and Wiwiet Yuniarto (Drives and Controls) attended the second day roundtable discussion. ABB also set up booth to introduce more about our solutions and products in maintenance and repair.

“The segment of maintenance, repair and overhauls (MRO) is a big opportunity for ABB and whether we want it or not, the question is - how do we make this attractive in a controlled way and how we explore and penetrate our solutions and innovation to our potential customers, “explained Chen Kang Tan, ABB's Manager for Motors and Generators business in Indonesia.
