ABB will install its automation system in a greenfield pilot plant in Jubail, Saudi Arabia, as part of SABIC’s digitalization strategy.
Using ABB’s proprietary ABB Ability™ System 800xA, the company will help integrate automation and control processes in SABIC’s Utilities Park and Pilot Project, part of the SABIC’s Technology Centre. The Centre represents SABIC’s biggest investment in innovation worldwide.
Kevin Kosisko, Managing Director at ABB, Energy Industries, stated, “As part of its 2025 strategy, SABIC has committed to innovation, sustainability and implementing digitalization technologies that improve its productivity and commercial capabilities. Our ABB Ability™ System 800xA will support SABIC’s long term success.”

DCS to enhance productivity 

The pilot, due to start in early 2020, is in collaboration with Wison Engineering, China’s largest private service provider for engineering, producers and construction (EPC). 

By integrating the functionalities of a distributed control system (DCS), an electrical control system  and a safety instrumented system (SIS), the data provided will support predictive analysis and allows SABIC to better manage the plant, improving thus productivity and efficiency. Moreover, the ABB’s SIS facilitates compliant with IEC 61508/61511 regulations.
