SIEMENS OPENS SEC­OND UAE MINDSPHERE CEN­TRE

Cen­tre in Abu Dhabi will de­velop so­lu­tions based on Siemen’s IoT OS MindSphere for process in­dus­tries

Channel Middle East - - Front Line -

Siemens has opened a new MindSphere Ap­pli­ca­tion Cen­ter in Abu Dhabi, which will fo­cus on de­vel­op­ing con­nected so­lu­tions for process in­dus­tries based on the com­pany’s IoT so­lu­tions.

The new cen­tre, at Siemens Mid­dle East HQ in Mas­dar

City, will fo­cus on ap­pli­ca­tions for oil & gas, water, and waste water, and is al­ready work­ing on so­lu­tions for re­gional cus­tomers in th­ese sec­tors.

In oil and gas, Siemens is us­ing AI tech­niques - such as Ar­ti­fi­cial Neu­ral Net­works - to iden­tify anom­alies in flow-rate pat­terns and al­low bet­ter de­ci­sion-mak­ing in com­plex up­stream, mid­stream and down­stream op­er­a­tions.

With em­bed­ded self-learn­ing al­go­rithms, ex­ist­ing his­tor­i­cal data can be used to process large quan­ti­ties of in­com­ing data, de­tect­ing anom­alies to min­imise down­time, pro­duc­tion losses and pro­tect cus­tomers’ crit­i­cal as­sets.

The cen­tre is the sec­ond of three such cen­tres planned for the UAE, which are in­tended to al­low close co­op­er­a­tion with cus­tomers to cre­ate so­lu­tions us­ing the Mindsphere cloud­based in­ter­net of things op­er­at­ing sys­tem, and other tech­nolo­gies in­clud­ing AI and data an­a­lyt­ics, to ad­dress spe­cific chal­lenges for their in­dus­tries.

Siemens opened its first re­gional cen­tre in Dubai to cater for the avi­a­tion and lo­gis­tics mar­ket, join­ing a global net­work of 20 cen­tres with

900 soft­ware de­vel­op­ers, data spe­cial­ists and en­gi­neers.

“We recog­nise the im­por­tance of the Mid­dle East’s in­dus­trial sec­tor, and be­lieve the MindSphere Ap­pli­ca­tion Cen­tre will play a sig­nif­i­cant role in ac­cel­er­at­ing the use of dig­i­tal tech­nolo­gies in rapidly-ex­pand­ing in­dus­tries such as oil and gas and petro­chem­i­cals,” said Fida Khalil, Head of MindSphere Ap­pli­ca­tion Cen­tre, Siemens Mid­dle East.
