Austrian Federal Railways (ÖBB) is investing in the new generation of Nightjet trains, which will offer passengers an even more comfortable nightime travel experience.
They are being developed and built at the Siemens Mobility plant in Vienna. The first Nightjet car body and exterior design were presented at a virtual press conference on February 23rd.
At Siemens Mobility’s virtual press conference the CEO’s Sabrina Soussan and Michael Peter unveiled the new Siemens Mobility vision, provided updates on how the company has managed business continuity and discussed the future of mobility post COVID-19.
In an era of consumer-oriented production and economic uncertainty, industrial companies are constantly facing new challenges. We're integrating cutting-edge technologies like artificial intelligence, Edge and Cloud computing, and Industrial 5G into the Digital Enterprise. This is how we're enabling the intelligence that’s required for the production of customized products. On Wednesday, March 4, the CEOs of Digital Industries presented technological innovations as well as current product highlights. They showed numerous specific examples to demonstrate how companies need to think and act in ecosystems in order to implement Industrie 4.0. We also demonstrated how we’re combining the latest technologies with our domain expertise to make our solutions for the digital transformation more and more market-specific.
Kicking off 2020, Siemens Mobility will participate in the Consumer Electronics Show (CES), a preeminent gathering place for the most innovative minds and organizations, taking place in Las Vegas, January 6-10, 2020. Under the motto of “Connecting people through seamless mobility”, Siemens Mobility will be showcasing a variety of digital innovations from its intelligent traffic systems and intermodal solutions.
Siemens Mobility delivers innovative solution-driven technology that enhances quality of life: making communities more sustainable and better places to live, work and play. Contributing to the next mobility revolution, comprehensive traffic management systems are shaping an autonomous, connected, electric and shared mobility ecosystem.
At "SPS – Smart Production Solutions" 2019, Siemens will present sector-specific applications and future technologies for the digital transformation of the discrete and process industries. At the heart of the 4000 square meter booth will be new products, solutions and services from the Digital Enterprise portfolio, which can be used to merge the real and virtual world.
On November 26, the first day of SPS, Klaus Helmrich spoke at the Siemens press conference, which took place in the trade show Convention Center. Mr Helmrich discussed the latest trends in digitalization and the next stage of digital transformation in the discrete and process industries.
At this year’s European Utility Week (EUW) in Paris, Siemens Smart Infrastructure will demonstrate how it is driving energy intelligence across supply and demand. By helping shape the energy ecosystem across buildings, industry and the grid, Siemens is supporting government, cities and businesses with their sustainability goals. The company will focus on four topics that support the energy transition: sustainable grids, smart distribution, the Internet of Energy and grid edge.
By 2035, more than 50 percent of electricity is expected to be generated by renewables. In parallel, electricity consumption is forecast to double by 2050. Megatrends such as increasing urbanization and climate change are driving the need for electrification and decarbonization. Meanwhile, new applications in software and digitalization are making grids smarter and more efficient, creating new business models.
With growing populations, cities are becoming increasingly congested, with more traffic and longer commutes. Efficiency and safety of road traffic remain top priority for many cities. By offering autonomous shuttle systems, public transport operators and cities seek to draw passengers and make public transport more attractive. At the ITS World Congress in Singapore, Siemens Mobility is examining how Singapore is transforming its transportation ecosystem, delivering an outlook on intelligent traffic systems (ITS) projects within the Asia-Pacific region as well as showcasing advances in autonomous mobility coming to life at the CETRAN test facility.
As the trend toward urbanization accelerates worldwide, cities need solutions for some of their most pressing demands: the need to transport growing numbers of people in an efficient, reliable, safe and sustainable way. Therefore, comprehensive mobility concepts and seamless intermodal solutions are becoming increasingly important.Siemens Mobility has the extensive expertise and experience to deliver digital innovations that increasingly cross-link the "complete mobility system". Under the slogan "Shaping connected mobility," we will showcase those pioneering solutions at this year’s UITP Summit in Stockholm from June 9 - 12 – solutions that guarantee availability, make trains and infrastructures intelligent, increase value sustainably over the entire lifecycle, and improve passenger comfort and travel experience.
Russian Railways (RZD) has ordered 13 high-speed Velaro RUS trains from Siemens Mobility and Ural Locomotives, a joint venture of the Sinara Group and Siemens AG. The order has a volume of around €1.1 billion. The contract also includes maintenance of the trains for a period of 30 years. RZD originally ordered eight Velaro trainsets from Siemens Mobility in 2006 and placed a follow-up order for an additional eight trains in 2011.
