Burlington, ON — Ivara Corp., a provider of asset reliability solutions, has announced that ABB, a supplier of power and automation technologies, has joined Ivara’s Implementation Partner Program.

Under the agreement, ABB will deliver Ivara EXP implementation consulting services through its North American Reliability Services practice, which supports its global network of customers.

In May 2005, ABB acquired the assets of HSB Reliability Technologies (HSBRT), an Ivara distribution partner. Recognizing the value that Ivara EXP reliability software would offer its customers, ABB is continuing this partnership and is now a qualified Ivara Implementation Partner.

“Ivara EXP is a powerful solution that will enhance our services offering,” says Andrew Ginder, vice-president, ABB Reliability Services North America. “Our reliability expertise along with EXP offers customers a superior combination that optimizes asset reliability and drives financial results.”

Ivara EXP uses predictive and condition-based maintenance capabilities to monitor asset conditions. Maintenance personnel are then prompted to perform the right work at the right time, according to asset condition and performance. EXP significantly increases the effectiveness of maintenance staff — as well as improving plant productivity and extending asset life.

“We are pleased to join forces with ABB, an internationally recognized leader in the maintenance and reliability services industry,” says Gerry Bleau, CEO of Ivara. “As we continue to expand our market reach for Ivara EXP, we will benefit from ABB’s worldwide presence.”
