Siemens has made a statement of intent on asserting digital technology in its power generation unit, with the opening of its MindSphere Application Centre in Berlin.
The centre is specifically aimed at developing future digital potentialities in the power area.
The company is seeking to facilitate more co-creation in direct involvement with its energy customers. Featuring a broad portfolio of digital services and tools, the MindSphere centre allows customers, software engineers and Siemens experts to come together to explore the value-added by digital services tools and solutions.
It also boasts the latest digital technology to showcase Siemens’ digital offerings in the most visual and hands-on way possible, such as a Digital Power Plant running on MindSphere.
At the opening of the MindSphere Application Center in Berlin, Tim Holt, CEO of Siemens Power Generation Services said, “The digital solutions of tomorrow will be developed in direct collaboration with our energy customers. And our MindSphere Application Centers provide the right setting for co-creating innovative digital solutions tailored to our customers’ needs.”
Siemens’ approach to creating MindSphere Application Centers is to establish facilities in multiple locations around the world, strategically placed near customers so that opportunities for co-creation and collaboration are readily available close by. Along with the Berlin digital centre, the company will open additional facilities in the future, with Orlando and Shanghai opening in the next few months.
