Creating a smarter, safer and more reliable flow of electricity. For everyone.
ABB is a pioneering technology leader operating in more than 100 countries with about 147,000 employees.
ABB specializes in power grids, electrification products, industrial automation and robotics and motion, serving customers in utilities, industry and transport & infrastructure globally.
ABB’s engineering heritage is based on continuous innovation to help customers become more productive and efficient, for over 130 years. Today, ABB is writing the future of industrial digitalization with two clear value propositions: bringing electricity from any power plant to any plug and automating industries from natural resources to finished products.
As title partner of Formula E, the fully electric international FIA motorsport class, ABB is pushing the boundaries of e-mobility to contribute to a sustainable future.
For those who dare to challenge what’s possible.
The Gotthard Base Tunnel is the longest, deepest railway tunnel in the world. ABB provides its ‘heart’ and ‘lungs’, ensuring reliable electrical power and a constant supply of clean air. Built to excel in extreme environments, ABB products connect and protect essential equipment and cables, keeping the tunnel operational 24/7.

The University Hospital of Basel is the biggest healthcare facility in north-west Switzerland. All patient information is stored digitally in the hospital’s data center. It is essential that the hospital’s electrical infrastructure is the best that it can be – lives depend on it. With the number of patients increasing every year, but limited space to expand, the hospital decided to implement ABB’s MNS-Up solution, providing the data center with power distribution and uninterruptible power supply in a modular, compact system. The data center can increase in power, but not in size, at any time, and reliable back-up power ensures hospital staff are able to deliver the best patient care.
For those who want to leave a better world behind them.
We’re building the cities of the future, today. Dubai’s first city to be powered completely by solar energy relies on ABB string inverters. We supplied 400 string inverters to harvest solar energy for 400 villas in the Sustainable City, the region’s first fully integrated sustainable community. As well as supplying the inverters, we provided training so that the client’s own engineers could install and maintain them. We also supplied inverters for a 1.4 megawatt (MW) parking lot solar roof project. This will charge electric cars, which are the only powered vehicles allowed within the city limits.
For those who never settle even when they succeed.
Delicious ice cream is synonymous with Italy. The Nestlé plant in Ferentino produces some of the best-known brands in Italy. A power outage would result in an industrial-scale meltdown. Low- and medium-voltage switchgear from ABB ensures a reliable power supply. If a short circuit occurs, the intelligent system limits unnecessary loss of power to the rest of the plant.
For those who don’t even realize it.
In homes, offices, buildings and factories all over the world, ABB products keep us safe. More than one billion miniature circuit breakers have been manufactured by ABB since their invention over 90 years ago. If there is a surge of electrical current or a fault is detected, the circuit breaker will cut off the power within 10 milliseconds, faster than the blink of an eye.
For him. For her. For them. For everyone.
Known as ‘Las Vegas on the Amstel’, the Ziggo Dome is the Netherlands’ premier entertainment venue. Behind the scenes, the building consumes a huge amount of power, especially during a concert. It is essential that the arena’s electrical infrastructure is reliable – a power failure would ruin the experience for the Ziggo Dome’s 17,000 visitors and high profile artists. ABB was chosen to provide switchgear and enclosures for the arena, plus an intelligent building system to control all the lights – from offices to backstage areas to public spaces – at the touch of a button.
