Siemens to showcase technology for efficient and reliable power networks at GCC Power

Highlights from Siemens will include the company’s fixed-mounted circuit-breaker 8DA-10 switchgear, designed for use in transformer and switching substations across a wide range of industries. Also on show, the Siemens 8DQ1-6 gas-insulated high-voltage switchgear is a new generation of switchgear noted for a high degree of versatility provided by its modular design. Both systems have been designed for operation in regions with adverse ambient conditions, such as high levels of dust and humidity.
The company’s Smart Grid division will also be showcasing a new benchmark for protection, automation, control and monitoring of transmission grids - SIPROTEC5. Designed for the protection of systems and employees, the SIPROTEC 5 family of field devices enable full data security and transparency throughout the entire lifecycle of the system, additionally saving time and reducing costs. Siemens is also displaying Wide Area Monitoring Systems [WAMS] such as the SIGURAD PDP software as well as a simulation kit of the Distribution Feeder Automation technology.
“With the GCC’s demand for electricity rising quickly, there is a growing need for reliable, efficient power transmission and distribution systems, that can reduce losses and minimize power supply disruptions,” said Wolfgang Braun, Head of Power Transmission, Siemens Middle East. “Siemens has long been a trusted power infrastructure developer to the countries of the GCC, and we are proud of the confidence placed in our technology to deliver reliable, efficient, best-in-class power networks.”
GCC Power 2013 will be held at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Center (ADNEC) between the 18 th and 20 th of November.
