Siemens technology – creating ingenuity for life

The water and wastewater industry worldwide is being challenged like never before. With aging infrastructure, operators must meet rising customer demand and plan for the uncertain effects of climate change. Particularly in countries like Australia, where water sources are relatively limited, asset management, digital technology and operational efficiency are key success factors. By connecting hardware, software and data, Siemens' solutions help address precisely those market issues and guide customers on the journey to the ‘smart utility’.  

Trends in the water industry

Towards a successful model

Supplying drinking water to the world’s population and treating wastewater are global challenges. Find out how we can support you with solutions for digitalization, automation and electrification.

Water resources – infinitely precious

Water is our most valuable resource. It must be available and affordable for everyone. On a daily basis, system planners, designers, and operators are required to keep the global increase in water consumption under control in the face of growing water shortages and the increasing salinity levels of freshwater resources. As experts in water applications, we offer powerful, innovative technical solutions to assist you.
