- 20 Mireo Plus B battery-powered trains for Baden-Württemberg
Maintenance contract for 29.5 years
- Delivery of trains by June 2023
Landesanstalt Schienenfahrzeuge Baden-Württemberg (SFBW) has ordered 20 Mireo Plus B trains from Siemens Mobility. The two-car electric trainsets with 120 seats can operate on rail routes with or without overhead power lines thanks to their battery hybrid drive, and are scheduled to operate in Network 8 of the Ortenau regional system. The contract also includes maintenance of the trains by Siemens Mobility for a period of just under 30 years. State Minister for Transport Winfried Hermann said: “This marks the first time battery-powered trains will be used in the state. With this innovative technology, the electrification of rail routes without continuous overhead power lines will also be possible.”
- Five industrial gas turbines for peak load and backup power plant
- Strengthening the power grid
For the third time in three months, Siemens has received an order from Belarus to supply SGT-800 industrial gas turbines. The new order covers five gas turbines, including associated auxiliary and electrical systems, for a peak load and backup power plant. The new plant will be built at the existing power plant location of the Berezovskaya combined heat and power plant in Beloozersk, Brest Region, in the south-western part of the country. The order was placed by Brest Republican Unitary Enterprise of Electricity Industry (Brestenergo). With an electrical capacity of 254 megawatts, the new plant will help further strengthen the power grid’s reliability and stability. Commissioning is scheduled for December 2021.

Increased security through encrypted data transmission and extended password protection
Timer program for presence simulation
- Control of SONOS speakers and Philips HUE LED lighting system
IP Control Center (IPCC) N 152, Siemens Smart Infrastructure’s compact visualization controller designed to control standard rooms and complex building management functions in small and medium-sized commercial buildings, is now available with new V4 firmware. The updated IPCC combines more functionalities for customized system integration and installation as well as maximum building and data protection without having to rely on additional software. Extended security measures, such as encrypted data transmission and presence simulation as well as other functional options such as individual scene settings, have also been implemented. In addition, new interfaces enable the control of SONOS loudspeakers and the Philips HUE lighting system. As part of the GAMMA instabus building control portfolio, a range of products based on the international KNX standard, the new IPCC visualization controller makes it possible to control KNX devices faster and more easily. It provides intuitive operation and display of KNX systems on a customizable, fully graphical user interface for controlling standard room functions as well as complex building management functions from a central panel, PC or mobile device.
- New Plant Intelligence options, fully integrated in WinCC Unified, available on tablet or PC
- “Performance Insight” option for simple display and calculation of key performance indicators (KPIs)
- Create and visualize structured planning of production processes with the "Calendar" option
launches two new Plant Intelligence options for the WinCC Unified system: The “Performance
Insight” and “Calendar” options extend the WinCC Unified visualization system
with functionality for more transparency and structured planning in the production
processes. The additional options can be individually combined according to
application requirements and are fully integrated in the system, so that all
functions are available to the user on various devices such as tablet or PC. By
using the information thus obtained and planning ahead, costs can be reduced,
and rejects avoided. In addition, production facilities can be better utilized,
which increases effectiveness and efficiency.
- Higher light comfort due to energy-saving switching and dimming of up to 20 DALI ECGs per channel in broadcast mode
- Personalized control with “tunable white” for Human Centric Lighting (HCL)
- Easy installation, low maintenance expenses and energy efficient switching and dimming
Siemens Smart Infrastructure is launching its new KNX switch and dim actuator N 525D11, 2x DALI Broadcast. The rail-mounted device for installation in distribution boards has two Digital Addressable Lighting Interface (DALI) outputs. Thanks to a control performance of up to 20 DALI electrical ballasts (ECG) per DALI output, the new actuator offers energy efficiency and low commissioning costs during broadcast mode where all connected ECG, for example lamps, are controlled simultaneously. The new device has a wide range of functions to increase comfort for room users, such as color temperature control and configurable dimming curves. In addition, the actuator is able to store light scenes, send status or error messages, and provide switching cycles as well as an operating hour counter. The new device offers the best conditions for optimum lighting ratios in the room. In combination with presence detectors, which control brightness fully automatically, a simultaneous control of brightness and color temperature can be achieved.
