Under the theme, From Innovation to Transformation, ABB will showcase its latest industrial digital solutions at a special event in Melbourne next month.
The new portfolio, ABB AbilityTM, is designed to improve operating efficiencies and empower the digital transformation for businesses across the utilities, industries, transport and infrastructure sectors.
The range will be unveiled at ABB’s inaugural ABB Customer World - Australia event at the Melbourne Convention Centre on March 15.
According to ABB, this unique exhibition will assist businesses to lower operating costs and enhance their competitive advantage.
The innovations will advance the digital grid of the future, the company says.
This includes the integration of renewable energy, intelligent manufacturing and software-defined machines to smart sensors, cloud services and smart buildings.
National and international speakers, include Otto Preiss, ABB Group Senior Vice President Digital, who will outline the impact of digitalisation on the bottom line.
Mr Preiss will explain how the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and ABB Ability solutions can drive operational excellence.
The important topic of “How to achieve 50 percent renewable energy without comprising grid stability” will provide an ideal platform for a lively debate during the morning plenary session.
Leaders in industry, utilities and government will feature and initiate discussion about the policy setting and technologies needed to maintain reliable power supply and help Australia grow its economy while meeting its international commitments to emission reduction.
