Siemens showcases eco-friendly energy storage solution at Coliseum Summit in Qatar

“Siestorage is a game-changing technology,” said Juergen Viethen, General Manager of Siemens Low and Medium Voltage Division for the Lower Gulf area. “This is the first time Siemens puts forward the Siestorage innovation in the context of stadium technology. The energy storage system secures a stable and reliable power supply on match days, replacing diesel generators and the emissions they emit.”
Siestorage is a modular electrical energy storage system. It integrates renewable energy and optimizes the usage of fossil generation as part of a modern eco-friendly grid. Siestorage combines cutting-edge power electronics for grid applications and high-performance Li-ion batteries. The power supply system acts as a ‘vital artery’, forming the basis for the reliable and efficient functioning of all electrically-operated building installations.
“Efficient and reliable electrical power distribution requires integrated solutions. This starts at the planning stage with the right software tools for the design and configuration,” said Paul Fairweather, head of the Low and Medium Voltage Division at Siemens WLL Qatar. “Our optimally-aligned product and system portfolio for integrated power distribution ranges from medium-voltage switchgear to socket outlets. Now, we can compliment these with a smart energy storage solution.”
Siemens has been actively involved in all recent Major Events around the world during the past decades. The company established a program office in Doha this year to coordinate all activities related to the World Cup event.
“It is exciting to witness the new possibilities in technology compared to the solutions that will be used during the World Cup in Brazil next year. With the modularity and mobility of the Siestorage solution, organizers will now have the opportunity to grant reliable power supply without pollution or noise,” Program Manager Jan Schoenig said.
