Huang Xiaozhou, Member of the Standing Committee of the Xiamen Municipal Committee and Deputy Mayor, pointed out that Xiamen ABB Switchgear Co., Ltd. has built a full value chain enterprise integrating production, manufacturing, sales, engineering services and R&D. After 30 years of development, ABB has become a rooted Heron The island’s “rooted” enterprises. It not only promotes the precise docking of Xiamen’s industrial chain and talent chain, but also gathers many upstream and downstream enterprises to invest and build factories in Xiamen, making positive contributions to building Xiamen into a high-end equipment manufacturing base in China and economic and social development. As one of the first batch of low-carbon pilot cities in the country, Xiamen has a good foundation for green development in terms of taking the lead in carbon peaking and carbon neutrality. Xiamen welcomes ABB Group to further increase investment and industrial layout in Xiamen, and will continue to provide ABB with high-quality and considerate services, and work together to create a better future!
At the celebration, ABB ushered in the successful roll-off of the one millionth VD4 vacuum circuit breaker in China. Since 1994, the output of VD4 vacuum circuit breakers has steadily increased year by year, helping Chinese customers improve power supply reliability, save energy and improve production efficiency. At the same time, ABB officially launched the 40.5 kV 1400mm wide cabinet UniGear ZS3.2 air-insulated switchgear with a new generation of digital technology, which not only meets the user’s requirements for the safety, performance and intelligence of switchgear complete electrical equipment, but also effectively reduces equipment life cycle operation. cost, promote the comprehensive construction of digital grids, and accelerate the realization of a low-carbon digital future.
Zhao Yongzhan, president of ABB Electrical China, said at the celebration ceremony: “Xiamen ABB Switchgear Co., Ltd. is the starting point of ABB’s manufacturing in China. Its 30-year development history is the epitome and a successful example of ABB’s development in China. At present, we have owned R&D facilities in Xiamen. , procurement, manufacturing, sales and engineering services. We take this as a fulcrum to form a strong local layout that radiates across the country with equal emphasis on sales, production and R&D. At the same time, relying on local advantages to drive export business and reach the world We will take this opportunity to continue to focus on innovation, service and talent cultivation, and start a new journey with partners from all walks of life.”
ABB Xiamen Switchgear Co., Ltd. is located in ABB Xiamen Industrial Center in Xiang’an District, Xiamen. It is the first joint venture established by ABB Group in China in 1992. It mainly provides customers with 3.6kV – 40.5kV medium voltage switchgear, circuit breakers and other products and service. After 30 years of rapid development, the company has now developed into ABB’s largest medium-voltage switchgear manufacturing and R&D base in the world, and has delivered 1 million circuit breakers and more than 400,000 medium-voltage switchgears to customers at home and abroad. These products have been widely used in the Great Hall of the People in Beijing, the Three Gorges Project, the Beijing-Shanghai High-speed Railway, Xiong’an New District, Chengdu Tianfu International Airport, Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge, Shenzhen Metro, Tibet Power Grid, international large-scale event stadiums, leading internet companies and Tens of thousands of domestic and foreign projects, such as data centers of major financial companies, Mumbai Metro, and Abu Dhabi desalination plants, involve various industries such as electric power, petrochemicals, metallurgy, real estate, and public facilities; at the same time, the company supports the implementation of the “Belt and Road” initiative , Play an important role in overseas projects undertaken by Chinese enterprises.
ABB has committed to achieving carbon neutrality in its own operations by 2030. Xiamen ABB Switchgear Co., Ltd. actively carried out sustainable development deployment and won the title of “National Green Factory” from the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology. At the same time, in order to help customers and partners reduce their carbon footprint, it continues to explore green and low-carbon environmental protection technologies, and has achieved many innovative achievements. The pole insulation material is made of environment-friendly PT material. In the production process of PT materials, no three wastes (waste water, waste gas and solid waste) are produced, and every 50,000 circuit breakers produced can reduce carbon emissions by 3,000 tons, enabling carbon-neutral green development with technological innovation.
Xiamen ABB Switchgear Co., Ltd. is the winner of the National Quality Management Award and the Fujian Provincial Government Quality Award, and continues to improve the level of lean manufacturing. The UniGear ZS1 switch cabinet robot assembly workstation was completed today. This robot automatic workstation realizes the automation of the switch cabinet assembly process. It can assemble dozens of materials into a complete cabinet without manual participation, which improves the assembly accuracy of the switch cabinet. , Consistency and quality stability reach new heights.
