Our general policy is to store replacement parts for 10

or 20 years after end of production depending on
products. The main spare part stock is located in our
factory Product Service Center and ready to be
shipped within 24 hours. The stock is monitored and
available via the ERP system. Our 24/7/365 support
network will ensure fast and professional corrective

Preventive Services:

ABB high voltage products requires a minimum of

maintenance. Our recommended maintenance and
overhaul procedures are stated in the product
manuals. We recommend the use of point-on-wave
switching and ABB can supply this for all new
breakers and most ABB single pole operated
breakers. Both our breakers and our surge arresters
can be equipped with on line monitoring. Depending
on type of technology (Air blast, oil, SF6), operating
conditions and environment a major overhaul can be
necessary after 5 to 10 years. We also recommend
that this overhaul is carried out by licensed ABB
service technicians and with original parts.

Value Added Services:

ABB can supply retrofit and upgrading kits for life

extension for many of our breakers. And our Dr
Switchgear can also give you an expert assessment
of the switchgear and recommend the best
alternative to modernize your assets utilizing our
modular and configurable switchgear concept.

Support Services:

ABB provides comprehensive application guide

(ance) and training programs. We can also assist you
with application studies for line arresters and pointon-wave switching to ensure maximum availability
and power quality.
