ABB Inspires Smart City Development in the Heart of London

ABB Electrification business opens new centre of expertise to accelerate adoption of safe, smart and sustainable electrification solutions.

This new location allows ABB to be closer to its partners in the UK’s e-mobility, data center and digital infrastructure sectors, enabling the leader in digital technologies for industry to work closely with them in further developing solutions for these key areas.

Recently the UN promoted its World Cities Day: “Changing the world: innovations and a better life for future generations” acknowledging that digitalization and smart technologies are providing real opportunities to decarbonize cities. These elements form the core of ABB Electrification’s Mission to Zero, enabling industries, public services and communities across the world to achieve their targets for a more sustainable future.

Located at Holborn Tower, the office is fully equipped with ABB’s Smart Building and Energy Management solutions, allowing visiting customers to view its latest integrated systems, installed in a functional building environment.

Mike Mustapha, Head of ABB Electrifications Global Markets commented: “London is a key city in Europe, where a lot of EPCs, architects and the digital business we see today are based. This will help us to develop Smart City infrastructure not only in the UK but for across Europe too.”

David Nicholl, Lead Sales Manager for ABB Electrification Northern Europe continued: “London is the ideal location for ABB to demonstrate its capabilities as a partner and to influence specifications. With 70 percent of the buildings’ market based in London, we will be closer to key consultants and contractors, plus stakeholders for key segments such as data centers and e-mobility.”

As well as showcasing its installed Smart Building and Energy technologies, the office also features a fully interactive customer value wall, featuring the newly released ABB Smart City interactive presentation.

ABB Electrification’s digital solutions all help to deliver smarter cities and the ABB Smart City interactive presentation explains how the solutions come together to support smart buildings, e-mobility, energy management and data centers. Itcan be accessed via:
