ABB, ICS Triplex partner to aid safety systems in process industries


Wickliffe, O.; Houston, Tex.- A new technology partnership, announced June 19 by ABB and ICS Triplex , is allowing them to share technical resources, and support advanced safety systems throughout the oil, gas, petrochemical and process industries. The two companies plan to cooperate on developing triple-modular redundant (TMR) protection systems for these industries worldwide. Their agreement is expected to increase market penetration for both firms' existing products, and aid development of next-generation products.

''ABB's technology partnership with ICS Triplex further enhances our focus on safety systems,'' says Sandy Taylor, group vp of ABB's petroleum business unit. ''We foresee faster product development, improved product features, and an Industrial IT-enabled TMR product.''

As part of the agreement, ABB' s TMR product business, development and technology support will be integrated into ICS Triplex Technology Ltd. As part of its overall safety system portfolio, ABB will continue to engineer, supply and support the Triguard TMR Safety System, as well as future Dual and TMR products.

Peter Mottershead, ICS' ceo, adds that, ''This partnership brings together two of the leading companies within the safety systems market, and reinforces a commitment to developing
