Making the Texan grid smarter

How Oncor’s power grid becomes more reliable with Siemens smart grid solutions

Oncor is the largest power distribution and transmission

company in Texas, USA. Together with Siemens,

they have created a smart grid that enables Oncor

and its customers to keep track of electricity flowing

in their energy systems. The grid facilitates the

integration of fluctuating renewable energy,

increases efficiency, and reduces costs.

Dallas

Population: 1.29 million

Dallas is the ninth largest city in the United

States. Its economy is primarily based on

energy, transportation, commerce, banking,

telecommunications, and computer technology.

In Istanbul, Siemens opened one of the most

innovative production plants in Europe in 2009.

The facility, which produces medium- and lowvoltage

power distribution products, uses about

25 percent less energy and 50 percent less water than

the previous one, making it the first plant in Turkey

with a “gold” green building certificate (LEED Gold).

Istanbul

Population: 12.78 million

Istanbul is the largest city in Europe by popula-

tion and the cultural and financial center of

Turkey. The city is also Turkey’s biggest industrial

center, employing roughly one in five of the

country’s industrial workforce. Local industry

varies widely, from textiles and chemicals to

autos and food and beverages.

The evolution of digital 2-D mammography to

3-D tomosynthesis by Siemens researchers brings

substantial progress to the fight against breast

cancer – the most common form of cancer among

women in the Western world. The University Hospital

in Malmö is the first to use a Siemens tomosynthesis

device for screening.

Along with the growth of Moscow’s population, its

electricity consumption has also been increasing – by

eight percent per year. The new combined-cycle City

Power Plant II, equipped with Siemens gas and steam

turbines, ensures the power supply and district heating

for an entirely new city district in a clean, cost-efficient,

and sustainable way. The high overall efficiency of the

cogeneration plant helps to reduce CO emissions.

Moving goods well

Rotterdam

Population: 603,400

Ports like Rotterdam profit from Siemens’ crane

technology like the control platform “Simocrane” to

increase their productivity and profitability. Supply

chain security is ensured by Siemens Command and

Control, Intelligent Video and Screening and Scanning.

In addition, by using energy-efficient drives,

those cranes reduce their energy consumption.

Rotterdam is the second largest city in the

Netherlands. The city has always been one of

the main centers of the shipping industry in the

Netherlands. The port of Rotterdam is the

largest in Europe and third largest in the world,

with access to all international ports as well as

excellent access to inland locations, including

cities in Switzerland and France.

Washing wastewater

How Siemens technology guarantees drinking water for Singapore’s population

In Singapore’s Kranji wastewater purification plant,

extra-thin membranes and germicidal ultraviolet

radiation are used to reclaim pure drinking water

from wastewater, thus expanding the city’s limited

water resources. The plant relies on Siemens’

Memcor microfiltration to purify 40,000 cubic

meters of water per day.

Singapore

Population: 4.65 million

The Republic of Singapore is an island nation

off the Southern tip of the Malay Peninsula.

The city state plays a key role in international

trade and finance. It’s the world’s second most

densely populated country. Singapore’s economy

is based on exports and refining imported goods,

especially in manufacturing, and includes

significant trade in the electronics, petroleum

refining, chemicals, mechanical engineering,

and biomedical sciences sectors.

Diagnosing matters of the heart

How Siemens software accelerates diagnosis of cardiac diseases

In the “Centre Cardio-Thoracique” in Monaco,

cardiologists use high-end imaging technology

such as CT scanners and MRI systems, together with

syngo.via from Siemens, for the diagnosis of cardiac

diseases. syngo.via speeds up the interpretation of

images, thus enabling rapid diagnoses.

Monaco

Population: 32,960

Monaco is the second smallest country and also

the second smallest monarchy in the world. The

sovereign city state is located on the northern

central coast of the Mediterranean Sea, surrounded

on three sides by France. One of Monaco’s

main sources of income is tourism.

The principality has successfully sought to diversify

into services and small, high value-added,

non-polluting industries, such as cosmetics and

biothermics.

One of the first solar-thermal power plants – which

uses Siemens components almost exclusively – has

begun operations in the community of Lebrija near

Seville in Southern Spain. Nearly 6,000 parabolic

troughs with approximately 18,000 solar receivers

produce 50 megawatts of eco-friendly power – enough

electricity for 50,000 homes.

Lebrija

Population: 26,040

Lebrija is a city in the province of Seville,

Andalusia. The main productive activity is agriculture,

with beets, cotton, wheat and various fruits

and wine as its main products. The city is also

known for its pottery and earthenware heritage.

The farmers of this area were the first to cultivate

corn brought over from America.
