Siemens showcases future of power supply at Wetex

DUBAI, October 24, 2017

Siemens, a global technology powerhouse, is introducing the future of power supply at the ongoing Water, Energy, Technology and Environment Exhibition (Wetex) in Dubai, UAE.

Showcasing its innoative products at the three-day event, the German group is demonstrating ways to achieve a sustainable energy future with its digitalised portfolio.

At its stand, Siemens is offering visitors an opportunity to interact with various virtual and augmented reality demonstrations featuring its highly-efficient gas turbines, power transmission and distribution solutions and breakthrough energy storage systems.

The innovative Daiqri helmet transports the user into the virtual world, putting them in the role of a service engineer performing a task.

A second virtual reality device allows the user to experience the company’s gas turbines from any angle, and these technologies can help utility owners and engineers to more effectively maintain their assets, boosting reliability and extending their lifespan, said the statement from Siemens.

To further support the UAE to achieve its goal of becoming a sustainable, knowledge-based economy and provide an innovative and nurturing environment, Jean Claude Nasr, the senior executive VP for Siemens’ Power Generation Division in the Middle East and North Africa, addressed the topic of technology incubators in energy, power and water on the opening day yesterday (October 23).

Nasr explained how Siemens could support this paradigm shift through sustainable, state-of-the-art solutions.

Kuldeep Tickoo, the executive VP of Digital Grid at Siemens Middle East, and Eduard Rauber, the head of Lifecycle Management, Digital Grid, Siemens AG, will jointly present a new innovation in digital substations.

Tickoo and Rauber will explain the substation as a central element of electricity grids and illustrate concrete potentials of digitalization in substation technology and design, as well as their benefits for utilities.

"As the UAE adopts digital technologies across various sectors, Siemens will be showcasing at Wetex innovations underpinned by digitalization that can support its future goals," remarked Dietmar Siersdorfer, the CEO of Siemens in the Middle East and UAE.

“Businesses and society can reap the benefits of connecting the physical and virtual worlds. Our solutions for the power sector can help drive efficiency, productivity and reliability gains towards sustainable growth and economic diversification for the country’s and the region’s populations,” he stated.

Siemens turbines account for 40 per cent of the UAE’s power generation capacity, revealed Siersdorfer.

In Dubai, the German industrial major has been supplying the emirate with power solutions since 1992, including technology for the protection and automation of its power infrastructure for the digital age, he said.

Globally, Siemens has committed to becoming the world's first major industrial company to achieve a net-zero carbon footprint by 2030, he added.-TradeArabia News Service
