Indian global mobility company Ola has selected robotics and automation solutions provider ABB for its mega-factory in India that will roll out the Ola electric scooter.
Ola said in an announcement on Monday that its electric scooter factory is expected to be ready and operational in the coming months and will utilise ABB’s automation solutions in key manufacturing process lines, including its painting and welding lines – while the ABB robots will be deployed extensively for the battery and motor assembly lines.”
Bhavish Aggarwal, Chairman and Group CEO, Ola said, “We are delighted to bring on board ABB, a global leader in robotics, machine automation and digital services, as a key supplier and partner for robotics and automation solutions that will be deployed at our scooter mega-factory. ABB’s solutions will be riding on Ola’s own proprietary AI engine and tech stack embedded in our scooter mega-factory. We are bringing in global expertise and stitching up partnerships that will help us build out our factory in record speed and roll out the first of our electric scooters in the coming months.”
“Connecting ABB’s robot solutions to OLA’s digital ecosystem will ensure our robots are key components of OLA’s new, advanced facility. This level of automation will enable OLA to consistently achieve their twin objectives of high productivity and high quality,” said Andrea Cassoni, managing director of general industries at ABB Robotics.
“This, together with the high levels of flexibility our robot solutions offer, demonstrates how technology can transform manufacturing and ensure OLA’s mega-factory is a great example of a factory of the future, for many years to come.”
Ola says it is building its mega-factory on Industry 4.0 principles and to be powered by its own proprietary AI Engine and tech stack that will be “deeply integrated into all its systems, continuously self-learning and optimising every aspect of the manufacturing process”.
“This will provide unprecedented control, automation and quality to the entire operations, especially with Ola’s implementation of cyber-physical and advanced IoE systems.”
Ola says that with an initial annual capacity of 2 million units, its mega-factory will create 10,000 jobs and serve as the company’s global manufacturing hub for both India and international markets across Europe, UK, Latin America, Australia and New Zealand.
