ABB in the Chemical and Petrochemical Industries

April 21, 2008

ABB is a leading supplier of instrumentation, analytical devices, automation, electrical and safety systems to the chemical industry. From single products, supplied direct or via channel partners, to complete composite solutions demanding excellence in project management and deep process application knowledge, we can tailor the delivery scope to meet your requirements.

In some cases you may choose to use ABB’s consultative services to supplement your own staff, in other cases you may choose to have us act as the Main Automation / Electrical Vendor (MAV / MEV). ABB then takes on the total responsibility for establishing the base engineering detail and takes integration responsibility for the total system including purchase and integration of third-party devices.

In order to help chemical companies achieve a competitive edge, ABB now offers extended automation. This incorporates, in a fully redundant integrated platform, manufacturing management, batch management, process and electrical control, asset management and Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) calculation to provide all your plant personnel with up-to-date information relative to their job role. Combined with total lifecycle services and evolution policy our integrated solutions and consultant services improve your Return on Capital Employed (ROCE) – making ABB an ideal partner throughout the lifetime of your chemical plant installation.
