Leading Power and Automation Company Integrates Kepware Communications Platform for Scalability across Thousands of Well Sites

With over a century of rich experience through its founding companies, ABB is a global leader in power and automation technologies. Headquartered in Zurich, Switzerland, the company employs over 140,000 people and operates in approximately 100 countries around the globe. ABB's business is comprised of five divisions: Power Products, Power Systems, Low Voltage Products, Discrete Automation and Motion, and Process Automation. Each of these divisions are in turn organized into business units in relation to the customers and industries they serve.

With a heavy emphasis on the environment, ABB is widely regarded as a leading innovator of clean and efficient energy solutions. Many of the technologies taken for granted today—from ultra-efficient high-voltage direct current power transmission to a revolutionary approach to ship propulsion—were developed or commercialized by ABB.

ABB was selected as the main automation contractor for the world's first operation focused on converting gas from coal seams into liquefied natural gas. This supports ABB's environmental goals as natural gas provides about the same amount of energy as coal with over 40 percent lower carbon dioxide emissions when burnt.
