ABB connects with Imperial College

ABB has signed a long term strategic research partnership agreement with Imperial College London focusing on new power solutions such as FACTS (flexible AC transmission systems).

The official signing ceremony took place during a recent ABB day at Imperial College which brought together over 50 staff from both the university and ABB to examine joint approaches for developing optimal power infrastructure, reliable power grids, and optimal manufacturing and customer processes.

Speaking during the event Dr Markus Bayegan, ABB’s chief technology officer, said, Cutting-edge technology gives our core businesses in power and automation a distinct advantage over our competition. A central task of ABB’s R&D team is to transform university research into industry-ready technology platforms. This concept, honed in recent years, comes to life in more than 50 university partnerships in the US, Europe and Asia. Long-term, strategic relationships with Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Carnegie Mellon University, Stanford University, Cambridge University and now Imperial College underline the importance of this approach.
