Ventyx, an ABB company, announced that it was named the Silver winner in the ‘Company of the Year – Energy’ category for the 2013 International Business Awards (IBAs). Finalists for this year’s awards were selected from more than 3,300 more than 50 countries and territories worldwide. Ventyx, the sole technology vendor chosen in this category, was recognised for its innovation and continuous commitment to addressing the long-term and future technology needs of its global energy customers.
“Our customers power the world, and Ventyx software solutions play a key role in enabling them to do that,” said Jeff Ray, CEO of Ventyx. “In the past year, we have helped our customers overcome some serious challenges, including natural disasters such as Hurricane Sandy, as well as the daily task of meeting the rising demand for power while protecting the environment.”
The world’s leading utility companies rely on Ventyx to optimize asset performance and operational efficiency while improving customer satisfaction. For example, American Electric Power, one of the largest electric utilities in the United States, is implementing the new company’s Asset Health Centre solution to enhance the performance and reliability of its electric transmission network. E.ON, one of the world’s largest investor-owned power and gas companies, selected Ventyx to underpin its new smart grid control center in Sweden. Électricité de France (EDF), the world’s largest producer of electricity, is deploying Ventyx asset management solutions across its power generation operations in France. Additionally, in South America, Ventyx solutions are helping improve access to more reliable power for 15 million citizens in Ecuador through a contract with TRANSELECTRIC and CENACE.
This award follows the recognition Ventyx received earlier this year as being named a ‘Company of the Year – Energy’ in the 2013 American Business Awards.
