In the field of flexible AC transmission systems
are serviced by Siemens Customer Services
In times with growing bottlenecks, uncontrolled load flows, and instabilities due to the liberalization of the energy market and the increasing share of volatile renewable energies, TSOs have to make sure that their FACTS installations are working at their best to enhance grid stability and power quality. Regular maintenance, health and security checks, modernization and retrofit as well as many other services are needed to ensure the safety, reliability and availability of your FACTS installation throughout the entire lifecycle. And that’s what we are committed to.
At Siemens, we provide you with all kinds of comprehensive services for FACTS solutions and contribute professionals with many years of experience and qualifications in the utility and infrastructure industries. You benefit from a maximized lifetime of your FACTS station, minimized downtimes and unpredictable expenses during offline maintenance activities, and you secure highest availability and reliability with a safe investment. And what's more, having your FACTS managed, operated, and maintained by our FACTS experts allows you to focus on your core business.
Digitalization changes our energy systems. It offers great prospects and new business opportunities, but harbors also challenges in terms of cyber security. Whether attacks on the communication to and between FACTS devices, on time- and synchronization-based control algorithms, or malicious sending of incorrect operational data that endangers a stable operation, cyber threats to FACTS systems have to be taken care of in advance. And even without a direct Internet connection: Manipulated IT devices or the engineers’ or maintainers’ laptops etc. pose risks, too. To protect FACTS, we offer comprehensive cyber security support and services based on a in-depth defense concept. We identify your technical vulnerabilities, recommend appropriate security measures and carry out their implementation. Our services for cyber security include:
Cyber threats are increasing with serious consequences for companies and communities worldwide. Critical infrastructure like power transmission systems become increasingly the focus.
As IT systems are the foundation of all of today’s critical processes in most companies, this leads to significantly increased risks of being attacked by hackers or viruses and patching software weaknesses is not a onetime task but an ongoing endeavor through the system’s lifetime. Siemens has developed a comprehensive cyber security service portfolio for FACTS to support customers.
