Siemens brings digital solutions to GCC Power 

“At GCC Power, Siemens will demonstrate how its innovative and reliable technology continues to support Qatar and the region in the area of power transmission and distribution,” said Adrian Wood, CEO of Siemens in Qatar. “Our solutions, combined with our drive for digitalization, can help create efficiency, productivity and reliability gains towards sustainable growth and economic diversification for the region’s populations.”
Atef El-Irani, Senior Power System Expert, Energy Management, Siemens Middle East, will present a paper referencing a case study of Abu Dhabi Company for Onshore Oil Operations (ADCO). El-Irani’s study will highlight the application of Siemens’ Static Synchronous Compensator (STATCOM) to oil and gas power networks. STATCOM is a reactive power compensation system that helps stabilize power supply.
Additionally, Thomas Mangold, Senior Sales Manager of FACTS at Siemens AG, will highlight the advantages of a multi-level Hybrid Static Var Compensation (SVC), a high voltage system that controls network voltage dynamically, keeping it constantly at a set reference value. For his part, Petr Rudenko, Head of Technical Marketing for Gas Insulated Switchgear (GIS) at Siemens AG, will discuss new non-conventional instrument transformer (NCIT), a future technology in GIS.
