Industry Services: From big data to smart data

SPS IPC Drives 2015 in Nuremberg is all about digitalizing the industrial value chain. The previous posts in our blog series in the run-up to the trade fair took this into account with their coverage of Totally Integrated Automation, Industrial Communication, Industrial Software and Industrial Security. But digitalization is playing an increasingly important role in the area of Industrial Services as well. With its versatility and open architecture, Siemens Cloud for Industry is a platform that ...

One line, many possibilities

In our fifth blogpost, we want to talk about one of the main advantages of GILs: their small trench width in comparison to other power transmission lines. In the current discussions about grid expansion plans, public opposition can be very strong especially in city areas or areas, where environment is protected (e. g. national parks). A main argument mentioned is the visual impact of overhead lines (OHL) and the related space requirements needed for installation. In this context, underground t ...

The trend goes towards distributed, higher performing solutions

Welcome to the future of offshore HVDC

Three hours before the National Maritime Conference on 19-20 October, Siemens presented its next generation of direct-current (DC) technology. Encapsulated, smaller, lighter, and easier to build, this new distributed solution makes connecting offshore wind power plants to the grid more cost-efficient and simple – a radical step towards substantial cost reductions in offshore wind energy. About every two years, the heavyweights of Germany’s offshore industry come together to debate and discuss t ...

Electricity from the three wind farms Butendiek, DanTysk and Sandbank is transmitted to the mainland via the SylWin1 grid connection

Conquering the North Sea – with HVDC

Siemens is leading the way on DC grid connections. With four offshore substations operating and another under construction, we have more experience than anybody else in the world.When it comes to DC grid connections for offshore windfarms, the North Sea is not just the biggest game going, it is the only game going. DC connections are being considered carefully in other parts of the world, but only in the ocean to Germany’s northwest do they actually exist.Siemens has supplied most of these DC su ...

Digitalisierung für die Werkstatt

Das Thema Digitalisierung ist heute aus der Fertigung nicht mehr wegzudenken. smart operation ermöglicht es nun auch werkstattorientierten Betrieben erste Schritte in Richtung Digitalisierung zu gehen. Dabei müssen sie weder über großes IT-Knowhow verfügen oder größere Investitionen tätigen.Begriffe wie Digitalisierung oder Industrie 4.0 klingen nach großer IT-Infrastruktur und nach Vernetzung umfangreicher Fertigungsanlagen. Mit smart operation ermöglichen wir es hingegen speziell kleineren und ...

Digitalization for the jobshop

Digitalization has become an essential undertaking in the manufacturing industry. With smart operation, jobshop-oriented companies can now also take their first steps toward digitalization, without requiring IT expertise or substantial investments. Terms such as digitalization or Industrie 4.0 sound like something that involves large-scale IT infrastructure and networking of extensive production facilities. With smart operation, we can help small and medium-sized companies benefit from modern mo ...

These are the different AC grid access concepts

To AC or to DC – that is the question

Power generated by ocean-based wind turbines can be transmitted to shore by either alternating current (AC) or direct current (DC). Siemens offers both options; the choice depends mainly on the distance to be covered. The best spots always go first. For wind-turbine sites, this is just as true as it is for seats in a theater or a cinema. Over the past 10-15 years, many of the top, land-based locations for turbines have been snapped up. You can’t miss them from an airplane, a motorway or a long ...

Siemens Industry Analyst Conference | How to Change a System that is More than 100 Years Old

For many places in the world where you can turn on the lights with the flick of a switch, the centralized power system that makes that possible has been in place for 100 years or more. It is a system whose users haven’t needed to give its technology much thought. It is a system, though, that is poised to undergo a tremendous shift – one that will introduce opportunities as well as challenges, and most definitely raise a lot of questions. How to get ahead of the change? What role a utility, a tec ...

A subtle twist

Siemens technology meets the world of fashion Pordenone, Italy. Textile machinery manufacturer Savio Macchine Tessili S.p.A. (Savio) relies on Solid Edge and Teamcenter from Siemens to cut development times for winders. Savio was on the lookout for a suitable software solution to speed up development processes and enable customer needs to be more flexibly addressed. The Italians approached Prime Team and Tech Value, both Siemens technology partners, to help them make the necessary software cha ...
