Siemens will demonstrate ways to achieve a sustainable energy future with its digitalised portfolio at the 19th Water, Energy, Technology and Environment Exhibition (WETEX) in Dubai, held from 23 to 25 October.
At the company’s stand at Zaabeel Hall, visitors can interact with various virtual and augmented reality demonstrations featuring Siemens’ highly-efficient gasturbines, power transmission and distribution solutions and breakthrough energy storage systems, the company sated.
In addition, the innovative Daiqri helmet transports the user into the virtual world, putting them in the role of a service engineer performing a task.
A second virtual reality device allows the user to experience the company’s gas turbines from any angle, and these technologies can help utility owners and engineers to more effectively maintain their assets, boosting reliability and extending their lifespan.
Dietmar Siersdorfer, CEO of Siemens in the Middle East and UAE, said: “As the UAE adopts digital technologies across various sectors, Siemens will be showcasing at WETEX innovations underpinned by digitalisation that can support its future goals.
"Businesses and society can reap the benefits of connecting the physical and virtual worlds. Our solutions for the power sector can help drive efficiency, productivity and reliability gains towards sustainable growth and economic diversification for the country’s and the region’s populations.”
Jean Claude Nasr, senior executive vice president for Siemens’ Power Generation Division in the Middle East and North Africa, will address the topic of technology incubators in energy, power and water.
Siemens turbines account for 40% of the United Arab Emirates’ power generation capacity.
In Dubai, Siemens has been supplying the emirate with power solutions since 1992.
