Panel discussion: Digital Twin - the future model of water management!

Digitization is the core topic of a future-proof water industry, and as such holds many opportunities for increasing efficiency, protecting resources and thus reducing the burden on the environment. While automated processes, e.g. in the area of pump systems, are already standard in many companies, the possibilities of comprehensive digitization extend far beyond this. The concept of a Digital Twin creates opportunities for self-optimization of existing and new plants. The basis for this is the collection of suitable and high-quality data sets. The panel discussion will provide an outlook on use cases as well as the hurdles that companies face (e.g., lack of technical knowledge, cyber security, etc.) and ways to overcome them.

Portfolio

Our Portfolio

For the water industry Siemens provides comprehensive solutions from a single source: from process instrumentation, industrial communication, and power supply systems to drive and protection technology as well as automation and process control technology. From seawater desalination to the treatment of drinking water, and waste water. Siemens’ integrated portfolio covers the entire plant lifecycle from planning and operation to maintenance to lower energy consumption, minimize water losses and reduce lifecycle costs

Plant engineering and management

COMOS 

A prerequisite for effective plant management is the optimal collaboration and coordination of all disciplines and departments involved in the engineering and operation of a plant. The standardized COMOS data platform gives plant engineers, builders, and operators a seamless flow of project-relevant data throughout the entire plant lifecycle – across all company levels and all phases.

 

SIMIT 

Bringing products to the market faster while maintaining the same level of quality requires integrated engineering workflows as well as short changeover and start-up times for new or altered plant units. The simulation platform SIMIT enables comprehensive tests of automation applications and offers realistic training environments for operators before real systems go into operation. This creates opportunities for process optimization and know-how retention which results in reduced commissioning time and significantly shortened time-to-market. Overall this means more efficiency throughout the entire lifecycle of manufacturing and process plants. The SIMIT Water and Wastewater Library is designed especially for the water and waste water industry, enabling the simulation of specific use cases in combination with other libraries. SIMIT also supports virtual commissioning and training for system operator

 

PlantSight - Cloud-based Digital Twin

Long before the topic of digitalization gained momentum, data played a decisive role in day-to-day plant operations of the process industries: product quality, plant efficiency, process reliability and much more can - then as now - only be reliably determined on the basis of data. That is where PlantSight comes in. PlantSight consolidates the assets of a plant, by bringing together different types of data from different sources into a single source of truth. An information centric solution which provides a Digital Twin to access information throughout the entire lifecycle helping engineering and operations functions who want to ensure the digital blueprint reflects the actual installation when accessing 1D, 2D & 3D data and documents and comparing this with real time data after collection, aggregation and visualization.
