Over 70 percent of all break-bulk cargo (piece goods) in the world is transported by ship, train, or truck in ISO containers (standardized large-volume containers). Cutting-edge container terminals are therefore essential to ensure goods are handled efficiently. A well-known provider of these solutions is relying on a high degree of automation and Siemens communication and network technology when building a new container port terminal. A total of 42 cranes are controlled and automated using the largely redundant, reliable network. The pre-configured and tested devices were commissioned in successive stages. By ensuring the automation and PC systems were completely separated, the network retains a high level of availability, thus making a significant contribution to the efficiency of the container terminal.
Packo Inox NV (Packo) manufactures high-quality stainless steel systems for hygiene-sensitive production processes in the food and pharmaceutical industries. In addition to individual system components, the company also supplies complete process lines. On the one hand, a high degree of standardization is important to ensure easy integration into existing systems. On the other, the system modules have to be optimized to meet specific customer requirements. To this end, Packo has relied for years on a close collaboration with Siemens to ensure reliable development of its systems. In addition to QR coding with Siemens solutions for easy documentation and integration of system modules, Packo also benefits from robust components with high reliability, and highly accurate process instrumentation.
To whom it may concern,
First of all, I do want to thank you for the countless
mails, social media engagements and personal meetings over this important matter.
The vast majority has been addressing their concerns clearly and with respect.
For me, this only underscored the importance and the need to diligently look
into the issue at hand. Especially, the messages I’ve received from Australian
people have moved me personally, when they described that their homes and their
country is burning and suffering from these terrible fires.
Even though we do not have clear evidence that the wildfires
and this project are directly connected, I feel empathy for all those, who
spoke up and warned about worsening conditions. Siemens, as one of the first companies
to have pledged carbon neutrality by 2030, fundamentally shares the goal of
making fossil fuels redundant to our economies over time.
historical Siemensstadt will be transformed into a new working and living
environment. With Siemensstadt 2.0, Siemens is planning to implement the largest
development project in its history.
Vectorworks, Inc. is an award-winning provider of design software for architects, landscape architects and the entertainment industry with a global presence. An important customer requirement of software solutions is easy and robust 3D modeling functionality. Vectorworks uses components from the Siemens PLM Software portfolio. With Siemens solutions, customers can achieve precise modeling, for example protrusions or similar. More importantly, designers can spend more time on the actual design process without having to worry about detailed questions of error accuracy.
- Jury’s decision for design by Berlin firm unanimous
- Clear urban development concept and new high-rise structure in center of Siemensstadt
- Historic location to be successfully transformed for the future
Siemens and the State of Berlin invited 18 architecture firms and urban planning teams to participate in the competition to redesign Siemensstadt (“Siemens City”), the company’s historic location in Berlin. After two days evaluating their proposals, the high-caliber jury has now reached a decision: “Siemensstadt 2.0 will be implemented on the basis of a design submitted by the Berlin firm Ortner & Ortner Baukunst,” said Stefan Behnisch, the distinguished architect who chaired the jury’s deliberations. “In the jury’s view, this design will provide a solid basis for the structure of the future Siemensstadt. It’s not the complete picture. It leaves room for necessary developments. It’s a design that treats the historical buildings with respect while enabling their up-to-date utilization. The design fulfills virtually all today’s requirements, but also leaves room for the future development of a new, modern city where people can both work and live,” he added.
- Seamless redundancy and high precision time synchronization from a single device
- Easy migration to highly reliable networks with zero packet loss
- Minimal downtime and reduced risk of communication disruptions
- Specifically designed for modern digital substation applications
Siemens has introduced a new line module for the Ruggedcom RST2228 and RST2228P Layer 2 19” rack switches, the Ruggedcom RMM2972-2RNA. This module strengthens the Ruggedcom RST2228 19” rack switch offering to the electric power utilities by providing seamless redundancy with PRP/HSR (Parallel Redundancy Protocol/High-availability Seamless Redundancy), enhanced IEEE1588 implementation, high bandwidth uplinks, and traffic filtering and segmentation from a single device. This module eliminates network downtime due to single points of fault, resulting in high reliability and availability for modern digital substation applications as mandated by the IEC 61850 standard.
- Partnership brings together leading-edge integrated circuit (IC) methodologies, processes and tools to help the automotive supply chain solve design and verification challenges
- Leveraging Arm automotive IP and software within Siemens’ PAVE360 digital twin environment enables collaboration and empowers automakers and suppliers to develop and validate differentiated safety enabled systems, ICs and software solutions in the context of the entire vehicle
- Siemens’ PAVE360, part of Siemens Digital Industries Software’s Xcelerator portfolio, helps automotive companies innovate and develop the complex electronic systems needed for today and tomorrow’s vehicles
Siemens Digital Industries Software today announced a partnership with global semiconductor IP leader Arm, that will bring leading edge IP, methodologies, processes and tools together to help automakers, integrators and suppliers collaborate, design and bring to market their next-generation platforms much faster. This partnership was formed to address the increasingly complex challenges facing the industry in developing platforms to realize active-safety, advanced driver assistance, in-vehicle infotainment, digital cockpits, vehicle-to-vehicle/vehicle-to-infrastructure and self-driving vehicles. Key advances in computing and sensor technology are enabling companies to redefine mobility beginning with the integrated circuits and software within automotive electronics systems. The combination of Siemens’ and Arm’s innovative technologies can help automakers and suppliers deliver tomorrow’s electronic design and automotive solutions, today.

A unique test laboratory
has been opened at the Hagerbach Test Gallery in Flums. The Tunnel
Digitalization Center (TDC) enables the simulation of tunnel applications in a
realistic environment. In the past, solutions for tunneling had to be installed
and tested on site at great expense. The TDC is equipped with numerous Siemens
solutions. For example, engineers have implemented the TIA Portal (Totally Integrated Automation Portal). This
engineering framework is suitable for all project phases – from planning
through engineering to commissioning.
