Globally, utilities and power system operators are contending with a host of challenges that hamper their ability to expand coverage or add new services.
The Collaborative Operations Centers (COCs) provide rapid, expert remote services by connecting our people with our customers to efficiently and reliably manage their installed base of protection, control, communication and grid edge solutions from Hitachi Energy.
Every new load, upgrade, extension, and reconfiguration of a power network can create unexpected stress and interactions that the original system was not designed for. Through our Collaborative Operations Centers and Service Level Agreements, Hitachi Energy can help to proactively address these challenges before they grow.
By adopting a follow-the-sun model and working in harmony with engineering and service centers in more than 40 countries, the new COCs in Malaysia, Australia, U.S.A, U.A.E., Switzerland and Italy will ensure 24/7 world-class customer service is available ‘locally’, anywhere in the world.
Based on specific service level agreements, and through periodic investigations, services can be delivered over a secure remote platform to manage and protect customers’ digital equipment.
