ABB announces opening of Collaborative Operations Center in Helsinki, Finland

October 10, 2017 - ABB announced the opening of the ABB Ability Collaborative Operations Center in Helsinki, Finland. The center will function as the central focal point for expert resources and for systems that are equipped with ABB technology. It will leverage ABB’s pulp and paper expertise to provide true data-driven solutions for its customers by providing remote connectivity, secure access to process performance information, and technical support. The new center will be part of ABB’s Global Collaborative Operations Center network.

Sensors and operation-critical systems transmit data on the health and performance of paper machines to the centers, where sophisticated software performs advanced data analytics on a 24/7 basis. The insights gained will allow engineers to diagnose potential issues, advise on preventive maintenance or suggest measures to improve performance. ABB experts and customers work in close collaboration, taking data-driven decisions in real time that increase operational performance and business profitability.

Earlier this year ABB opened a Collaborative Operations Center in Westerville (Ohio) focusing on the pulp and paper industry. Later this year one more center will be opened in Singapore, leveraging the “follow the sun” principle to support customers anywhere in the world.

ABB Collaborative Operations is a true Internet-of-Things application and is part of the company's portfolio of ABB Ability with digital solutions. Collaborative Operations provides performance management, remote monitoring and preventive analysis technologies to ensure security, and improve efficiency and productivity in various industries. ABB Collaborative Operations Centers connects people in enterprise-wide production facilities and headquarters to ABB’s technology and expertise.
