Engineering excellence meets athletic excellence: Beginning with the start of the new 2017/2018 sports season and continuing for a period of three years, Siemens will be an official "Performance Partner" for FC Bayern Munich and FC Bayern Basketball. With forward-looking solutions and digital products, Siemens will not only be supporting FC Bayern Munich in the area of sports, but also in the area of technology. As part of this partnership, the use of Siemens technology is to be further increased – for example at the Allianz Arena and the Audi Dome, in administrative buildings and at the training facilities on Säbener Street in Munich. In addition, software- und cloud-based services for FC Bayern Munich in the areas of power engineering, building technology and safety-and-security technology, intelligent mobility solutions for local public transportation and traffic management systems play a key role in the cooperation agreement. In this way, Siemens will be bringing to play its full range of expertise and innovative power for FC Bayern and its fans along the entire value chain of electrification, automation and digitalization.
- Global partnership to being extended for another three years
- Cooperation involves FC Bayern’s soccer and basketball sections
- Strong focus on sustainability and digital solutions in infrastructure
successful seasons, Siemens and FC Bayern Munich have extended their collaboration
for three more years. The global technology powerhouse and the sport club with
the most championship titles in German soccer are lengthening their “Performance
Partnership” until the end of the 2022/23 season. The focus will remain on
future-oriented solutions and innovative technologies as well as on infrastructure-related
digital products and solutions.
- Joint training against cyberattacks key in protecting digital grids
- Valuable insights on attacks and vulnerabilities enable innovative solutions and safer products
Siemens Smart Infrastructure and the NATO Cooperative Cyber Defence Centre of Excellence (CCDCOE) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to continue the cooperation on cybersecurity for critical infrastructure. The CCDCOE organized annual high-level cyber defence exercise Locked Shields exercise provides a key pillar to jointly build up defence capabilities. With the new agreement, the parties advance their existing cooperation on cyber security training for power grids. In experimenting with grid control software Spectrum Power, Siemens gains valuable insights on the potential attack vectors and can thoroughly test new security features or protocols for its products and solutions.
- Siemens Energy launches "Future of Storage" initiative to
promote sustainable energy systems
- Ecosystem of technology partners for energy storage solutions
- Long-term cooperation with Norwegian EnergyNest on thermal energy
Siemens Energy has launched the "Future
of Storage" initiative. The aim of the initiative is to bundle knowledge
and build an ecosystem of technology partners in order to offer energy storage
solutions tailored to customers' needs. Decarbonizing the world's energy
systems is one of the key goals of Siemens Energy. An essential component of
climate-friendly energy systems of the future will be efficient energy storage
systems - they compensate for the fluctuating feed-in of renewable energies and
stabilize the grids, making them a key driver of decarbonization.
The Extraordinary Shareholders' Meeting of Siemens AG will be held on July 9, 2020 as a virtual Shareholders’ Meeting without physical attendance of shareholders or their proxy representatives.
- System based on Siemens Spectrum Power supports second-by-second control of all assets and integration of RWE wind and solar farms
- Improved combination of electricity generation from renewables and conventional fuel is a major milestone for the energy transition
RWE is making its power station control system fit for the future by adopting a new technology. Optime, a new SCADA system based on Siemens Spectrum Power, gives RWE a uniform control technology. SCADA stands for 'Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition' – in other words monitoring and managing technical processes using a computer system. Previously, there were two separate systems: one for power plants in Germany and another for the Netherlands and Belgium. The new solution combines the two, while integrating RWE’s renewable energy assets in Europe. It can also accommodate additional units such as battery storage systems and diesel-powered backup generators.
- Collaboration will support businesses’ safe return to work and build smart, connected workplaces for the future
- Joint solutions, built on technology from Siemens and Salesforce, include a ‘touchless office’ and advanced contact tracing
Today, Salesforce (NYSE: CRM) and Siemens announced a strategic partnership to develop a new workplace technology suite that will support businesses globally to safely reopen and deliver the future experience for physical workplaces. The partnership will combine Salesforce’s Work.com, powered by Customer 360, and Siemens’ Smart Infrastructure solutions, including Comfy and Enlighted, to orchestrate the processes, people and things that are essential to creating safe, connected workplaces for the future.
- Acquisition expands Xcelerator portfolio and creates data-driven product lifecycle management solutions for system-on-chip (SoC)
- Integration of cybersecurity, functional safety, and the management of complexity can enhance product quality, safety, and time-to-revenue across industries ranging from automotive and factory automation to high-performance computing
Siemens has signed an agreement to acquire Cambridge,
UK-based UltraSoC Technologies Ltd., a provider of instrumentation and
analytics solutions that put intelligent monitoring, cybersecurity and
functional safety capabilities into the core hardware of system-on-chip (SoC).
Siemens plans to integrate UltraSoC’s technology into the Xcelerator portfolio as part
of Mentor’s Tessent™ software product suite. The addition of UltraSoC to Siemens enables a
unified data-driven infrastructure that can enhance product quality, safety and
cybersecurity, and the creation of a comprehensive solution to help semiconductor
industry customers overcome key pain points including manufacturing defects, software and hardware
bugs, device early-failure and wear-out, functional safety, and malicious
The Daniel K. Inouye Solar Telescope (DKIST) was recently commissioned on the Pacific island of Maui. The 41.5 metre high telescope is the world’s largest of its kind and enables scientists to observe the solar surface more closely than ever before. A major challenge in the design of the DKIST was in minimizing the thermal energy absorbed by the focus on the sun. For a special heat absorption system, Aavid Thermacore – the specialist thermal technologies contractor – relies on solutions from the Siemens Digital Industries Software portfolio. In this way, the thermal energy is reduced from 2.5 megawatts per square metre to just 300 watts. The engineers were also able to ensure that the resulting heat does not degrade the image quality.
- Siemens will upgrade control and protection system of Moyle Interconnector
- Refurbishment increases security of supply, improves integration of renewable energy and enhances provision of ancillary services
Siemens Gas and Power (Siemens Energy) has been awarded the project to refurbish the Moyle Interconnector, a high-voltage direct-current (HVDC) link between Ballycronan More in County Antrim, Northern Ireland, and Auchencrosh, Scotland. Owned and operated by Mutual Energy, the Moyle Interconnector control and protection system is almost 20 years old and is being modernized to enhance its operation. The refurbishment of the 500-megawatt interconnector will increase the security and reliability of the power supply to consumers in the United Kingdom. The project to upgrade the technology originally installed by Siemens in 2001 is now underway and the refurbishment is scheduled to be completed in September 2022.
