ABB invested close to £1 million and signed a 10-year agreement with Imperial College London to support the carbon capture pilot plant teaching facility. ABB’s investment and involvement in the project signals the company’s commitment to shaping the next generation of industrial engineers. Using a combination of ABB’s instrumentation, drives, motors and process automation equipment, the control room provides students with hands-on experience of pilot-scale industrial plant operations and is the only facility of its kind in an academic institution in the world. The pilot plant will be used in undergraduate teaching with the aim of equipping students with the practical skills needed for a career in industry.
