“ABB's successful working history with PEMEX, excellent local resources, and ability to deliver products and services of high quality with leading-edge technology contributed to the renewal of this important contract,” said Johan Vermeiren , global head of ABB’s Process Automation Service business. “We deliver the long-term services and support that help our customers get the very most value and performance from their ABB automation system investment over its lifetime of use.”


Petroleos Mexicanos (PEMEX) is a Mexican state-owned petroleum company, responsible of the exploitation of petroleum resources that manages the exploration, exploitation, process and sale of oil and gas in Mexico.
