ABB opens new drive service workshop in Dubai
Workshop is one of ABB's 12 global drive service facilities
ABB has opened a new drive service workshop in Dubai, UAE, to address the needs of various industries in the region, including oil and gas.
The new workshop is one of ABB’s 12 global drive service facilities, which will provide repair, reconditioning service and exchange units for low voltage drives.
"One of the main reasons why drives save energy is because they can change the speed of an electrical motor by controlling the power that is fed into the machine," said ABB.
It will aim to "help customers reduce operational costs and meet their growing productivity and reliability objectives, while maintaining high environmental and safety standards", the company added.
“It’s important for drives to be serviced under proper supervision as the number of electronic components associated with it is increasing. Handling of drives and even cleaning requires competent and trained service personnel."
"Through the opening of the ABB drive service workshop in the UAE, we want to increase awareness for certified service in the region, and continue to tell our customers to insist on original spare parts,” said Ari Lassamaki, Head of Global Drives Service.
