2010-11-16 - Enterprise asset management software solutions to support ambitious nuclear power program

Zurich, Nov.16, 2010 – ABB, the leading power and automation technology group, announced today that it has signed an agreement with China National Nuclear Power (CNNP) to provide enterprise asset management (EAM) software solutions for the company’s extensive new-build nuclear power plant program.

The EAM software from Ventyx is an industry-leading solution for the management of operations and maintenance in the nuclear power sector, helping customers to generate electricity safely and reliably. This order further validates ABB’s recent acquisition of Ventyx to bridge the gap between information technology and operational technology. It demonstrates that ABB can meet the diverse needs of its clients - including those in the most demanding environments - from a single source.

“ABB’s extensive technology portfolio and experience, combined with Ventyx’s successful track record of implementing power plant management software systems, provides a unique value proposition for our clients,” said Jens Birgersson, head of ABB’s Network Management business within the Power Systems division.

ABB is a leading provider of solutions to the power generation sector. A significant number of the major nuclear power stations in North America use Ventyx software to manage their plant operations and maintenance programs.

ABB will implement software and training programs at CNNP nuclear power plants in partnership with the Research Institute of Nuclear Power Operation (RINPO) and Computer Application Institute Nuclear Industry (CAINI), both subsidiaries of the Chinese National Nuclear Corporation.

CNNP is a subsidiary of the China National Nuclear Corporation, which has one of the most ambitious nuclear power plant construction programs in the world. The potential of nuclear power as a clean alternative to traditional fossil-fuel plants has made it a centerpiece of China's energy development strategy.
