ABB India inaugurated a new factory to produce power distribution products in Nashik, Maharashtra.
Spread over five acres, the new facility would be equipped with smart manufacturing features with connected people, processes and assets capable of relaying real-time data and web-based integrated traceability system for daily planning and review. Onsite digital screens provide information transparency across the factory and its products, for key parameters that can be adjusted to increase the efficiency of operators. Mobile applications will help customers and service engineers to access information about products specifications, installation support, factory test results etc. just by scanning the QR code on the product.
ABB has been present in Nashik for close to 40 years supplying wide range of medium-voltage products like vacuum interrupters, circuit breakers, ring main units, compact substations and switchgear.
“The new facility reflects our commitment to the region’s growth and the government’s focus on reliable and smart 24×7 power for all. The Nashik location has been a hub of innovation for ABB across different medium-voltage power categories, which has been steadily growing for the last several years. The new smart facility will serve the growth and focus on efficient power distribution systems in the country,” said Sanjeev Sharma, Managing Director of ABB in India while inaugurating the facility.
The factory will manufacture outdoor products for substations like live tank vacuum-circuit breaker, auto reclosers and indoor ones like gas-insulated switchgear.
