Using the concrete example of Singapore modern indoor hydroponics farm Artisan Green
, Siemens will demonstrate how automation and digitalisation can optimise vertical farming operations to build a more sustainable and resilient food future. Winners from the Siemens Industrial Edge Competition 2023 will also be present at the booth to introduce their ingenious industrial applications. Siemens’ activities at the tradeshow will be accompanied by a live stage program featuring members of the company’s ASEAN senior leadership team.
“There are many challenges in today’s industrial landscape: cost pressure, faster innovation cycles, supply chains disruption, competition for talent, cybersecurity, and the biggest challenge of all: climate change. One-third of the world’s carbon emissions still come from industrial production. If net zero requirements are to be met and climate change reversed, industry must play a more active role,” said Isabel Chong, Head of Digital Industries for ASEAN at Siemens. “The answers start with automation, digitalisation and innovative electrification. At ITAP 2023, we will be showcasing how Siemens is helping to accelerate the engineering, execution and optimisation of industrial operations for more sustainable business.”
With ASEAN’s digital economy poised to reach US$2 trillion by 2030
, digital transformation for the region’s small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) is now critical, requiring cross-sector collaboration between the government and private sector, while prioritising sustainability. To do so, advanced technologies, a trusted technology partner, and suitable tech talent are necessary.
Siemens Xcelerator enables our customers to become digital enterprises faster
Siemens Xcelerator is an open digital business platform with a curated portfolio of Internet of Things (IoT)-enabled hardware and software, a powerful partner ecosystem and a marketplace. It supports companies of all sizes in their digital transformation. Key aspects that are being showcased for the first time in ASEAN at ITAP 2023 include:
- Industrial Operations X integrates information technology (IT) and operational technology (OT) to help industrial customers be more flexible in production to rapidly react to changes along the entire value chain. This enables faster ideation and implementation, intuitive interdisciplinary collaboration, improved operational decision making, as well as easier operations scaling.
- Energy-efficient and high-performing Sinamics G220 which consists of innovative frequency converters that are equipped with clean power technology. This reduces harmonics by up to 97 percent without the need for line harmonic chokes or DC link chokes. They are significantly more efficient in terms of space utilisation and operation and make engineering much easier.
