The “Virtual Factory Tour of ABB Malaysia” was successfully held via MS Teams on 8 November 2021. The virtual tour was organized by ABB and UTM School of Engineering, and was technically supported by IEEE Dielectrics and Electrical Insulation Society (DEIS) Malaysia Chapter, IEEE PES, and MyHVnet. The event was attended by around 250 participants.

The event started with a brief introduction of the ABB company history and general operations. Next, the virtual tour started with a live feed and commentary by ABB engineers describing the factory operations. The event ended with an engaging Q&A session. The DEIS Malaysia Chapter looks forward to engaging in more events such as this in the future.
