ABB works to develop new technologies

As well as manufacturing more conventional charging solutions. ABB in Italy works to explore new innovative technologies.

sand of the future is a collaborative innovation project. Developed by the Italian motorway operator Autostrada Brebemi-Aleatica.

This is based on the inductive charging technology of electric vehicles. ABB is one of the infrastructure providers for the 1km pilot ring.

ABB installs the circuit breaker Sace is infinite in the DC power substation. Sace Infinitus is the first IEC 60947-2 certified solid state switch in the world. Its use contributes to the implementation of the tecnologia Dynamic Wireless Power Transfer.

The sustainability of ABB vehicles

The adoption of electric vehicles is just one element of ABB’s commitment to sustainability in Italy. In the Frosinone plant, where ABB produces over 3.5 million circuit breakers annually. Here it uses data monitored with the ABB Ability™ Energy Manager platform.

Il reduced energy consumption for each switch produced by 25%. This makes it possible to reduce the average emissions per CO2 product of Scope 1 and 2 by 33% compared to 2019.

The Frosinone site is also the first ABB plant to obtain the platinum rating for the absence of waste sent to landfill. In accordance with the UL2799A Environmental Claims Validation procedure for zero waste classifications. This means that 100% of the site’s industrial waste is no longer landfilled.

Example of energy efficiency

ABB’s examples of energy efficiency and sustainability are shared with customers for replication.

Farina Pressea company from Suello (LC) designs and builds presses for the hot forging of metal components and related automation systems.
