HVDC services

Ensuring reliable high-voltage DC transmission for decades

Siemens high-voltage direct current (HVDC) transmission has proven its high performance and reliability for many years. Nevertheless, during the long lifecycle of HVDC, various services are required to support its optimal functioning or the economic and safe operation throughout the years.

Comprehensive services for all kinds of HVDC

Bringing energy from remote renewable energy generators to consumers and providing compensation for regional fluctuations in the production or consumption of electricity thanks to trans-national grid connections: HVDC transmission operators have to make sure their system provides the highest availability, performance, and efficiency at all times. One pillar to fulfill this challenge is best-in-class HVDC hardware and software. But that alone isn’t enough to guarantee efficiency, security, and reliability for decades: your system also needs regular maintenance, modernization, security checks and updates.

 

Siemens provides you with comprehensive services to increase the transparency of your HVDC system as a prerequisite for optimization and to ensure continuous availability as well as the highest possible performance. You’re looking for preventive and corrective maintenance, sophisticated spare parts management, and modernization or retrofitting of older systems? We are at your side with our specific HVDC know-how and a wide-ranging service portfolio to ensure a highly available, secure, and cost-efficient HVDC operation as well as compliance with environmental and safety regulations.

Siemens offers you a wide range of tailor-made services for your HVDC system. These include services such as our cyber security services for reliable and secure HVDC systems of the future.

Cover your cyber security needs with our digital services

As the digitalization of our energy system marches on, cyber security becomes more and more important for your HVDC assets. Even if they aren’t directly connected to the Internet, think of all the other possible risks such as manipulated IT devices or laptops from outside the station, e.g. from engineers or maintainers. Unauthorized changes to critical parameters and set points, control commands or device configurations can disrupt the power supply with serious, unforeseeable consequences for all participants in the energy chain. To prevent this from happening, we offer comprehensive cyber security services based on a defence in depth concept. We identify your technical vulnerabilities, recommend appropriate security measures and carry out their implementation. Our services for cyber security include: 

  1. Consulting regarding requirements, evaluating the own status quo and recommending the resulting security measures, for example
  2. Patch management (three service levels)
  3. Security audit, penetration test and incident handling

Cyber Security Services for HVDC and FACTS you can count on

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 HVDC and FACTS to support customers.
