1 FACTS Customer Your uptime insurance ABB FACTS Care

2 FACTS provides more stability and quality in existing and new power networks, with minimal environmental impact. With a complete solutions portfolio, in-house manufacturing of key components and professional customer services, ABB is your partner in shaping the grid of the future. FACTS (Flexible Alternating Current Transmission Systems) technologies allow more power to reach consumers through the existing transmission network. This results in lower investment costs and shorter implementation times compared to the traditional alternative of building new power plants and transmission lines. It also gives the additional benefit of lowering the environmental impact. On top of this, FACTS helps you to improve power quality, grid reliability and delivery performance. The long-term goodwill value of such benefits can not be overrated. Like any complex technical system, FACTS is vulnerable to operational standstills. The deployment of continuous professional services is necessary to reach the full potential of FACTS and to fully capitalize on the investment. Made up of thousands of parts, components and subsystems, in tight interaction with each other, the risk of undetected problems escalating into severe problems must be addressed. The ABB FACTS Care offering is a production uptime insurance for your FACTS installation. Production up-time, availability and reliability are of highest importance for our partners and customers. The total cost of ownership throughout the system lifecycle should be relevant in relation to the system capacity and performance requirements (service level). The capital expenditures, incurred when investing in the plant, needs to be in balance with the operational expenditure, the ongoing maintenance (service)cost for running a product or system. Our comittment is to listen and be responsive to our customers. We deliver customer satisfaction by providing timely and responsive service, with integrity, and a passion for excellence. We value our customers, and always strive to earn their trust. Power companies tend to outsource services that are not seen as part of their core business. There is also a trend that our customers wants longer term service agreements and managed services, where manufacturers take a larger responsibility for various service products and processes to the extent of day-to-day operation and management of the entire system. 2 ABB FACTS Care Your uptime insurance Your uptime insurance ABB FACTS Care 3

8 Evergreen Extend the lifecycle of your FACTS system There is growing demand for long-term service agreements and increased peace of mind. Our evergreen services help you to keep your FACTS system up to date. ABB s evergreen approach means that spare parts, updates and upgrades are built into the Agreement. You pay a regular and predictable amount and are ensured that your system is up to date. This is all about optimizing the Evergreen service mix during the lifetime, performance and TCO (Total Cost of Ownership) of the plant. Spare parts ABB strives to continuously increase the lifetime of your components. Using high-quality spare parts management, we are able to inform you what spare parts are needed to minimize unnecessary downtime. Since parts are not infinitely immune to wear and tear, you need to know how to achieve maximum availability throughout their lifetime. The main equipment normally has a longer lifetime than control system equipment. Replacements can generally be directly introduced without design changes. In some cases, however, minor updates may be necessary and are therefore offered case by case, if required. We offer relevant update packages to bring older installations closer to the functionality we supply in today s installations. We offer updates that improve reliability, add functionality and accessibility, secure spare part availability and increase overall performance. Examples: Computer Replacement Software Update HW Update Proactively upgrading the installation before a severe outage occurs can save time and money. The parts of a FACTS installations that are 15 years or older, may be in need of an upgrade. The need for upgrading depends mainly on the general condition of the equipment and the potential unavailability of spare parts. An upgrade may consist of a new control system, new functionality and a new generation of hardware and software. Examples: Control Computer Upgrade Control System Upgrade Evergreen in short Spare parts management protects you from unknown and unexpected problems related to spare parts support. ensure that the system is up to date and optimized and can be implemented in a few simple steps. An upgrade will improve your plant s capacity and production capability, while saving you valuable time and money. Product Manager, ABB Life cycle management and life cycle upgrades is key to get the right mix of Spare-parts, and life-cycle. Total Cost of Ownership a life cycle approach for the plants is a major driver for our customers. 14 ABB FACTS Care Your uptime insurance Your uptime insurance ABB FACTS Care 15
