Through power and automation integration as well as the enhancement of IoTSP, ABB can help users cut cost by up to 20%.

For instance, ABB 800xA Extended Automation System Platform enables seamless collaboration among different departments, processes and equipment across a factory and thus helps customers optimize the design and performance of power and automation systems, improve asset utilization and enhance operation efficiency by lowering cost in maintenance, engineering and the whole life cycle. Besides, ABB’s instruments, meters and analyzers enable safe and efficient automated production, storage and transportation in the OGC industry through accurate measurement and analysis for such key parameters as temperature, humidity, pressure and chemical components.


Leveraging these leading technologies and solutions, ABB has worked closely with customers in the OGC industry and helped them achieve efficient and safe production while improving the performance. For example, ABB provided electrical products including high-efficient motors, drives and transformers for the 1,613-km-long Zhongwei-Guiyang gas pipeline project to support the energy transmission in western China. ABB provided a complete set of automation solutions and engineering services to the Shale Gas Project in Jiaoshiba Block in Fuling, Chongqing to support China's first large-scale shale gas project to achieve efficient and smart production. ABB’s drives were applied in the “Gas Transmission from Sichuan to Eastern China” project, ensuring the long-distance pipeline transmission of gas in China. ABB also provided medium and low-voltage switchgears and gas-insulated switchgears for Phase II of the Huizhou refining project of China National Offshore Oil Corporation (CNOOC), to help build it into an important petrochemical project in China and even the whole world.

Meanwhile, ABB fully supports Chinese enterprises to go global by taking advantage of development opportunities brought by Belt and Road initiative, and cooperates with them in overseas projects through its advanced technologies and global footprint advantages. ABB has by far participated in project construction initiated by China Petroleum & Chemical Corporation (Sinopec), China National Petroleum Corporation (CNPC), China National Offshore Oil Corp. (CNOOC) and other petrochemical enterprises in a dozen of countries and regions across Asia, Middle East and Africa. For example, it has supported sustainable and reliable operation of such projects as 220 kV main substation solution provided for a crude oil processing project at the Atyrau Refinery contracted by Sinopec in Kazakhstan, and SCADA monitoring and data collection system, power management system and electrical equipment provided for to the oilfield power plant project contracted by CNPC in Iraq.

Following the exhibitions in Huizhou and Guangzhou, ABB will continue with the roadshows in Qinzhou, Maoming, Zhuhai and Quanzhou respectively during the next half year of 2016, showcasing its leading technologies, products, solutions and services in OGC industry to local customers and partners through roadshow visits and seminars.
