    Expo to have one of the world’s largest installations of smart building technologies

    Siemens’ innovative digital solutions will improve energy efficiency, safety, security and comfort for millions of visitors to the Expo 2020 site

    Expo 2020 Dubai will be a pioneering example of how a future city is shaped through smart infrastructure that makes our lives simpler and safer, thanks to Siemens’ range of state-of-the-art systems.

    Across the site, 137 structures will be fitted with smart building technologies from Siemens, Expo 2020’s Premier Infrastructure Digitalisation Partner.

    Siemens will monitor and control the buildings’ functions through its digital building management system, Desigo CC. This will include all three Thematic Districts (Opportunity, Mobility and Sustainability), the Thematic Pavilions, most country pavilions and the Dubai Exhibition Centre.

    Sensors and analytics will be used for functions such as air conditioning, energy usage, lighting, lifts, air quality and fire alarms. The comprehensive data collected through MindSphere – Siemens’ cloud-based operating system for the Internet of Things – will improve energy efficiency while also maximising the safety, security and comfort of visitors and participants.

    One of the world’s largest installations of the Siemens Navigator central cloud-based management platform will further help to reduce energy usage on its 4.38 sqkm site.

    Mohammed Alhashmi, Senior Vice President – Innovation and Future Technology, Expo 2020 Dubai, said: “Innovation is at the heart of World Expos and the UAE. Coupled with Dubai’s ambitious plans to be a pioneer for smart city technology, we are delighted that, through our partnership with Siemens, Expo 2020 Dubai will become a world-leading showcase for the potential of smart cities.”

    Markus Strohmeier, Senior Executive Vice President – Building Technologies Division, Siemens Middle East, said: “Expo 2020 is creating the most digitised and connected World Expo in the event’s 167-year history, and we will support this with data-driven infrastructure for sustainability, safety and security.

    “Expo 2020 Dubai is a global benchmark of how smart infrastructure will form the foundation of our future cities.”

    Siemens’ smart building technologies will continue to be used beyond Expo 2020 as part of the integrated city District 2020, where the multinational firm is also setting up a global logistics headquarters.
