- Enhanced reliability and efficiency through easier energy monitoring without data cables
- Suitable for the transmission of more than double the electricity of comparable systems
- Modular design for flexible planning and cost-effective expansion
At this year’s Light+Building, Siemens Smart Infrastructure is introducing LData, a busbar trunking system specially designed for data centers wanting to improve their efficiency, availability and adaptability. The more internet traffic, mobile users as well as Internet of Things connections increase, the more data has to be processed. That is why high-performance data centers are emerging as the backbone of a digital society. These data centers must offer the highest degree of availability to protect critical data as well as business-critical applications and industrial processes. At the same time, they must be energy efficient as well as easy to plan, install and expand. The energy distribution system plays a major role in this regard.
- Potential reduction of more than 8,000 tons of CO2 annually
- Emissions and noise while berthed can be significantly reduced
- Sustainable solution contributes to climate protection
- 16-megavolt ampere shore power system to supply two ships simultaneously with certified eco-power
The Port of Kiel commissioned Siemens to build Germany’s largest shore power system to date. With a power of 16 megavolt amperes (MVA), the Siharbor solution will supply two ships simultaneously with certified eco-power, for the first time. This will reduce annual CO2 emissions by more than 8,000 tons. The system is expected to go into test operation within the 2020 cruise ship season. Maritime shipping plays a special role in Kiel. The port is the point of departure for cruises and has ferry connections to the Baltic states and Scandinavia. 32 different cruise ships stopped in 174 times at the port facilities in 2018.
At this year’s
Light+Building trade fair, Siemens will showcase its vision for transforming today’s
passive buildings into learning and adaptive environments that intelligently interact
with people. The company’s focus at this year’s show is “Building the future
today”, outlining the innovations that will make this possible. These include cloud-based
technologies, digital planning, occupant-centric building automation and services.
New solutions for smart electrical infrastructure that seamlessly connects to the
Internet of Things (IoT) are also at the core of this transformation.
- Siemens’ MindSphere Named an Industrial IoT Software Platforms Leader by Independent Research Firm

- ÖBB orders 11 new Desiro ML trains from Siemens Mobility
- By the end of 2021, a total of 200 ML ÖBB Cityjets will be in service
- Further trains will be retrofitted with ETCS to ensure highest safety standards
ÖBB (Austrian Federal Railways) is calling up eleven trains from the existing framework contract for 200 Desiro ML trains from Siemens Mobility, thereby completing the contract. When the new trains are delivered by the end of 2021, a total of 200 Desiro ML ÖBB Cityjets will be in service and substantially enhance the quality of travel for passengers. Equipped with WLAN, air conditioning, power outlets, tables for opposite seats and many other amenities, the trains offer local commuters all the comforts and conveniences that previously were only available on long-distance trains.
