These developments will help customers harness digitalization to improve energy efficiency and increase operational agility across a number of industries.

Focused on fast-paced, agile development for direct implementation in customer projects, the center will use a mix of ABB’s own technology and new developments in research and development. This approach will allow customers to have access to the very best solutions fit for their needs, ahead of schedule, and under budget. It will include key technologies from the company’s comprehensive digital offering, ABB Ability ™, ranging from the leading distributed control system ABB Ability System 800xA to ABB Ability Data Center Automation for control, monitoring and optimization of mission-critical infrastructure. In addition, ABB Ability Manufacturing Operations Management offers end-to-end visibility of industrial operations.

Most digitally competitive economy

Singapore was recently identified as the most digitally competitive economy by IMD. The center will support Singapore’s industrial transformation and growth journey by harnessing technologies and developing digital capabilities that will help it realize its ‘Smart Nation’ vision.

ABB’s strategic presence in Singapore

The global Digital Solutions Center is the latest development strengthening ABB’s strategic presence in Singapore, adding to its advanced manufacturing footprint that already includes a Regional Robotics Application Center and Marine Collaborative Operations Center. ABB is also behind a number of pioneering projects that are changing Singapore’s infrastructure landscape, such as the Volvo-NTU autonomous e-bus project, floating solar photovoltaic test-bed at the Tengeh Reservoir and the iconic Marina East Desalination Plant. ABB in Singapore employs over 1,000 people, of which about one-third work in digital and software areas.
