ABB will open its state-of-the-art high voltage breaker facility in Mt. Pleasant, Pennsylvania, to Finepoint Circuit Breaker Conference participants for the 2007 Factory Day tour. The facility serves as the headquarters for ABB's High Voltage Product division in the United States. Mt. Pleasant replaces the nearby Greensburg facility that previously hosted the conference in 1996 and 2000. ABB is co-hosting Factory Day with Pennsylvania Breaker and Pennsylvania Transformer Technology, Inc.
Equipped with the latest in production and quality systems, the Mt. Pleasant facility is the pinnacle of high-end breaker manufacturing. A full line of high voltage dead tank circuit breakers (DTB) ranging from 38 kV to 800 kV, non-synchronous and synchronous, with interrupting capacities in excess of 80 kA are manufactured in this ISO-9001, ISO-14001 and OHSAS 18001-compliant facility.
The complete line of ABB circuit breaker and GIS legacy brands
(ABB, Asea, BBC, ITE, and Westinghouse) continue to be actively supported through the High Voltage Service group, also headquartered at the Mt. Pleasant facility. The service group boasts the industry's largest
available parts inventory located within their Greensburg, Pennsylvania, service shop.
ABB's service capabilities include authentic OEM parts, life extension
kits, up-rates, retrofits, re-manufacturing, field services, turnkey
installations, fleet assessments, customized products, diagnostics,
monitoring, and customizable training. Finepoint participants will tour
both the new DTB factory and the service shop while participating in
interactive technology presentations.
