The facility, named Disha, will house the corporate office, along with the offices of Electrification and Motion businesses alongside the Process Automation business in the same campus.
Located in one of the prime industrial areas of Bengaluru, the campus minimizes carbon footprint by sourcing 90 percent electricity from renewable sources; it reduces 55 percent load on potable water with intelligent fixtures and with 98 percent of its waste recycled, almost reaches its target of zero waste to landfill. The 15 acres campus has a green cover of about 30 percent.
By upcycling and repurposing an existing building to convert it to Disha, the project has optimized resources and significantly reduced the environmental impact which a greenfield project of this scale would have generated.
Showcasing ABB’s expertise in digital energy management solutions, more than 5000 ABB products are being used in Disha. It is the first ABB facility to deploy ABB’s Aspect IBMS (Integrated Building Management Solutions) technology.
This is a unified platform to monitor and control from any location or city, the multiple points enabled with hundred sensors from lighting to HVAC solutions, room controls, safety, and security systems with special CO2 monitors for ambient air quality monitoring in the rooms.
Commenting on the development, Sanjeev Sharma, Country Head and Managing Director of ABB India, said “the move to the existing Peenya campus brings our people together under the same roof enhancing collaboration and agility. It is also a step towards minimizing our carbon footprint, repurposing existing resources while offering a smarter workplace focused on employee wellbeing and improving productivity. ABB is developing all the companies’ manufacturing campuses at Nashik, Baroda, Faridabad, and Bangalore & multiple office campuses to common ESG standards in India. The vision was to create a model, flexible industrial infrastructure project with an enabling eco-system by working with all our partners and stakeholders.”
“In India, almost 30 percent of the energy is consumed by buildings and we believe Disha will create a legacy, a demonstration of what can be done to make buildings more efficient through the deployment of integrated digital building automation & electrical technology,” he added.
