Siemens launches Digital Services For Energy at Hannover Fair

Siemens Power Generation Services Division has developed a number of advanced, data-driven service offerings that combine big data with the company’s comprehensive domain expertise to support its industrial, oil and gas, electric utility and wind power customers. The new Siemens Digital Services for Energy, powered by Sinalytics, is intended to build upon the company’s than 20 years of experience collecting and analyzing data as part of its power diagnostics services and was officially unveiled this week at the Hannover Messe industrial fair in Hannover, Germany.

Siemens said its Digital Services for Energy are intelligent knowledge systems, enabled by advanced algorithms, sophisticated data analytics and machine-learning to create new business models that are continuously fed as-operated and as-maintained

fleet and unit-specific data. With this approach, tailored service solutions can be developed to meet customer needs for operational flexibility, plant performance, condition-based maintenance, etc. The data analytics also contribute to the development of new and improved processes and provide valuable insights that can be used in future technology design, Siemens said.

“Big data is transforming our industry into a digitally driven, intelligent ecosystem,” said Randy Zwirn, CEO of Siemens Power Generation Services. “Siemens is investing significant resources across its various businesses to successfully marry the physical and virtual worlds.

“With more than 300 000 devices already connected via our powerful Sinalytics platform architecture, we are able to put to work our vast experience and deep know-how to pioneer digital services that create game-changing value for our customers.”

These advanced data-driven service solutions are enabled by Sinalytics, Siemens’ analytics platform architecture, capable of integrating huge volumes of complex data. An important element of Sinalytics is Siemens’ cybersecurity-by-design approach that not only allows confidential data to be collected, transmitted and analyzed in a secure way but also means that cybersecurity is consistently integrated throughout all lifecycle phases. Siemens said that cybersecurity is a critical business driver for the company and is thoroughly implemented into the architecture of Sinalytics.

Siemens Digital Services for Energy are applied to projects across the globe, such as in the USA where Siemens is working closely with a major utility to support its initiative to mitigate unplanned outage time of its steam turbines and generators when the units are required to be available to generate power. The project involves engineering evaluation of Siemens’ and the customer’s fleets and then installing special sensors on steam turbines and generators as needed to provide additional data for analysis that can then be turned into valuable insights for advance planning and avoidance of costly unplanned outages.
