Industry specific applications for maintenance and outsourcing
ABB helps to benchmark and learn from our customer's own and other industries
Industry know-how is vital when responding to today’s asset performance management challenges. We must dig deep into the root causes of any reliability or production loss and to do this requires customer process know-how combined with ABB’s industry specific process and automation know-how. This combination is fundamental and vital in finding new solutions to maintenance performance and process optimization challenges.
Moreover, since 70% of world-class maintenance methodology is common, independent from industry or site it is here that the size of our maintenance business and the interconnectivity model for sharing generic know-how of asset performance management come into play. This allows continuous improvement for all customers, providing concrete opportunities to learn from other industries.
It is of course also critical that specific industry knowledge is held, developed and integrated. For 4 of our key industries this is expanded below.
We work closely with the Metals Industry in their production of Iron, Steel and Non ferrous metals. We strive to achieve productivity improvements and energy efficiency through Full Service, which means that ABB takes a full responsibility of all maintenance in the plant for mechanical, electrical and instrumentation as well as maintenance related purchasing and spare part optimization. We have experience of maintenance outsourcing in metals for over 15 years with satisfied clients in areas of aluminum, copper, nickel as well as in the iron and steel that have gained higher output and better performance with ABB Full Service® as their partner.
The metals business model is addressing an improved ROCE through higher availability and cost avoidance in our client’s asset intensive process. That is achieved through pro-active maintenance activities and a more structured and trained organization with global support and extensive metals process knowledge.
