COSOL has announced an expanded strategic partnership agreement with Hitachi ABB Power Grids to become the preferred provider for all Ellipse Professional Services capability required by Hitachi ABB Power Grids’ clients in the Australia-New Zealand region. 

The decision is an outcome of a strategic partnership review focused on how best to meet the needs of Ellipse clients in the region, who will now benefit from the respective strengths of both organisations, as those clients maximise the value they derive from their Ellipse investments and transition to Hitachi ABB Power Grids’ next-generation Lumada solutions. 

Throughout its 21 years of operation, COSOL has been a strategic partner of Hitachi ABB Power Grids. Over this time, COSOL has continued to strengthen its Ellipse practice with specialisations in driving practical business improvement and operational efficiencies through the use of Ellipse.  

“We are excited to further build and expand our Ellipse practice to be able to provide an even broader depth and range of Ellipse services to clients in this region. This further strengthens our position as the largest Ellipse professional services provider globally, which allows us to continue to invest for the benefit of all Ellipse clients.” said Scott McGowan, COSOL Asia Pacific CEO. 

COSOL continues to invest in a portfolio of Ellipse value added solutions including Copernicus for Ellipse, Evergreen for Ellipse and AddOns for Ellipse. COSOL is also well positioned to help Ellipse clients transition to Hitachi ABB Power Grids’ next-generation Lumada solutions.  

“We feel that this partnership will allow our Ellipse customers in Australia and New Zealand to benefit from the key strengths of Hitachi ABB Power Grids and the expanded portfolio of consultancy services provided by COSOL. We look forward to growing our support for these customers while also continuing to deliver innovative, industry-leading solutions and services through our Lumada offerings,” said Ewen Cameron, Vice President Asia Pacific – Enterprise Software, Hitachi ABB Power Grids.
