Initially with this, operators will have
access to more relevant information in one place, will be able to make better
decision based on health and operations-data of the entire pump drive trains
and will benefit through more effective service support in case of incidents.
Furthermore, operators will be able to plan maintenance events more accurately
and determine the health of the pump drive system on-demand.
Winkler von Mohrenfels, Vice President Digitalization and Software Large Drives
Applications, comments: “In the digital world, collaboration in ecosystems is
fundamental for value-add, speed and focus on what everyone can do best. In the
partnership with Sulzer, we strive to combine the digital and physical world
for best-in-class value-add for pump drive train operators: decades of product
and engineering know-how, IoT and AI-technologies as well as global service
Sulzer and Siemens Large Drives
Applications have been working together to integrate and exchange data between
their IoT-platforms that will enable operators of large pumps to ensure their
equipment is operating at peak performance. Both, the combined data from both
BLUE BOX and SIDRIVE IQ as well as the expert support will allow the operators
to identify actions that control lifecycle costs and reduce carbon footprints –
objectives on the business agenda of every company’s environmental, social and
governance (ESG) charter today.
Dr. Marc Heggemann, Head Digital
Solutions Sulzer Services concludes: “Our collaboration with Siemens LDAs
offers an excellent opportunity to further improve asset performance, reduce
downtime and maximize efficiency, all of which help to reduce operating costs.
This is the starting point for us, we will work with customers to develop the
idea much further and include additional functionality to maximize the
potential of this exceptional concept.”
