We put the operator in focus.
The decisions process operators make directly impact plant availability, quality, safety and, at the end of the day, profitability. Yet despite having more responsibility and a greater pressure to deliver, they often lack the tools and working environment to perform at their best.
"This is insanely great"
Jan-Olof Farstad from Conoco Phillips about Future Operations Centre
How often have they dreamt of the perfect control room? An environment planned and executed in the smallest detail to help them perform better – to drive operational excellence over long periods of normal running, yet respond instantly and correctly at the first sign of a fault.
That room exists! It’s called the Future Operations Center, it’s the leading environment of its type today, and you can experience it for yourself.
Future Operations Center is a unique control room setting. The result of cooperation between ABB, the CGM company and leading international research institutes, its clear focus is to improve and secure a high level of 24/7 operator effectiveness.
Here you can see and test an outstanding control environment built around 800xA Integrated Operations and EOW-x, our top-of-the-line operator workplace. You can also discuss your special operator needs with leading experts within human factors, and learn more about ongoing research programs designed to ensure that the Future Operations Center always lives up to its name.
Future Operations Center is located at CGM company headquarters in the Swedish town of Borås. ABB will help coordinate your visit and arrange a program suited to your specific requirements. A one-day program is standard but this can be extended to two so that other issues related to process control and operations can also be discussed and/or demonstrated.
