- Monte Rosa Hut in Swiss Alps modernized with new battery storage solution
- Solar power ensures sustainable, efficient energy supply
- 8.6 tons of lead batteries replaced with 2.7 tons of lithium batteries
The “Bergkristall” (Mountain Crystal), a mountain hut situated at an altitude of 2,883 meters in the Monte Rosa Massif of the Valais Alps, has been largely energy self-sufficient since 2010. Along with thermal solar collectors, a photovoltaic system integrated in the hut’s southern facade ensures a high degree of energy self-sufficiency and a reliable energy supply. Since 2010, all of the building’s performance data, such as solar energy generated and battery capacity, have been bundled in Siemens Navigator, the cloud-based building performance platform.
- Largest service order for Siemens Mobility from Deutsche Bahn
- IS 600 revision for 40 ICE 4 trains
Deutsche Bahn (DB) has awarded Siemens Mobility a contract for the revision of 40 trains of the series 412 ICE 4. This is the largest service order ever awarded to Siemens Mobility by Deutsche Bahn. The contract also includes an option for the revision of 50 additional series 412 trains. IS 600 revisions are required for new high-speed trains operated by Deutsche Bahn when they have reached a mileage of 1.65 million kilometers. The work will be carried out beginning in mid-2021 in the “Expert House” service area of the Siemens Mobility Test and Validation Center in Wegberg-Wildenrath, in the state of North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany.

The countdown for a new S-Bahn era has begun! Two weeks before their inaugural run on January 1, the new series 483/484 trains are ready and waiting to be deployed.
- One single device for lines of up to 500 km
- Monitoring for powered, unpowered or grounded lines
- Highly precise localization of line faults
- Simplifies maintenance and increases network reliability
Siemens Smart Infrastructure recently launched its new PowerLink CM, a condition monitoring solution for high-voltage AC and DC transmission lines. To ensure reliable power supply, optimize grid utilization and prevent blackouts the device is designed to precisely locate faults in the transmission grid and continuously track line conditions. One single PowerLink CM device is sufficient to monitor line lengths of up to 500 km. Faults as well as line condition can be detected in powered, unpowered or grounded lines. Fault reports are received by the affected substation and are forwarded from there to the control room. For continuous line monitoring, the device can be connected to MindSphere, the open cloud-based Internet of Things (IoT) platform from Siemens, which facilitates transparent processing of all line data in the cloud. This allows grid operators to analyze status reports and optimize maintenance activities.
- Charging, medium and low-voltage technology for two carports at Hamburger Hochbahn AG’s Alsterdorf bus depot
- Space-saving installation as technical center on carport’s roof
- Important step for transitioning to climate-friendly local transport in Hamburg
Siemens Smart Infrastructure won a major contract from Hamburger Hochbahn, the largest local transport provider in the Hanseatic city. Siemens will equip two of the six carports at the Alsterdorf bus depot with a total of 96 charging points as well as medium and low-voltage technology. Operations are scheduled to start in summer 2021. With a total of 240 parking spaces, it is one of the largest and most modern bus depots for electric buses in Europe.
