Siemens solutions for integrated water resources management at the IWRM Karlsruhe

15.11.2012
On November 21 and 22 at the IWRM Congress in Karlsruhe, the Siemens Industry Automation Division will be presenting its portfolio for the planning, engineering and efficient operation of complex water management systems.

Showcased at the Siemens booth will be a range of high-performance solutions for water and waste water treatment facilities as well as desalination plants. The Congress will be focusing on issues surrounding the protection and sustainable utilization of water as a resource.



The growing global requirement for drinking water has triggered a continuing rise in the number of large and complex water treatment plants. Alongside new water and waste water treatment facilities, in many parts of the world the planning and implementation of desalination plants is also on the rise. Visitors to the exhibition staged alongside the IWRM Congress will have a chance to visit the Siemens booth to find out more about the concept of integrated engineering.

Integrated engineering offers operators an efficient solution encompassing not only the planning and engineering of new plants but also their subsequent automation. Plants of all different sizes and levels of complexity can be effectively planned and designed using the Comos engineering software.

Using a newly established interface, prepared engineering data can be transmitted directly to the Simatic PCS 7 process control system, substantially simplifying and speeding up the process of plant commissioning. The Comos engineering software solution also permits the selection and configuration of field devices.

The PIA Life Cycle Portal online configurator supports the simple selection and fault-free collation of device order numbers both quickly and accurately.

When it comes to rapid engineering of field devices across the whole life cycle of a plant – whether at the detail engineering, plant expansion or maintenance stage – the new interface to the PIA Life Cycle Portal makes available the necessary technical data.

With five keynote speeches as well as 15 workshops encompassing over 60 presentations, the IWRM 2012 will offer participants the opportunity to find out everything they could wish to know about water resources management. Together with the trade exhibition staged at the same time, the Conference is a key international information and communication platform for the water industry.

The German Federal Ministry of Education and Research will also be present at the event to report on its integrated water resources management-related activities. The IWRM 2012 will be rounded off by the presentation of the NEO Innovation Prize for outstanding work in research and innovation. With participants from more than 25 countries expected to attend this year’s event, the IWRM Karlsruhe 2012 creates the ideal link between science, practice and politics.

Im Focus: Designing Architecture with Solar Building Envelopes

Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.

As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...

Im Focus: How to inflate a hardened concrete shell with a weight of 80 t

At TU Wien, an alternative for resource intensive formwork for the construction of concrete domes was developed. It is now used in a test dome for the Austrian Federal Railways Infrastructure (ÖBB Infrastruktur).

Concrete shells are efficient structures, but not very resource efficient. The formwork for the construction of concrete domes alone requires a high amount of...

Im Focus: Bacterial Pac Man molecule snaps at sugar

Many pathogens use certain sugar compounds from their host to help conceal themselves against the immune system. Scientists at the University of Bonn have now, in cooperation with researchers at the University of York in the United Kingdom, analyzed the dynamics of a bacterial molecule that is involved in this process. They demonstrate that the protein grabs onto the sugar molecule with a Pac Man-like chewing motion and holds it until it can be used. Their results could help design therapeutics that could make the protein poorer at grabbing and holding and hence compromise the pathogen in the host. The study has now been published in “Biophysical Journal”.

The cells of the mouth, nose and intestinal mucosa produce large quantities of a chemical called sialic acid. Many bacteria possess a special transport system...

Im Focus: Repairing defects in fiber-reinforced plastics more efficiently

Fiber-reinforced plastics (FRP) are frequently used in the aeronautic and automobile industry. However, the repair of workpieces made of these composite materials is often less profitable than exchanging the part. In order to increase the lifetime of FRP parts and to make them more eco-efficient, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) and the Apodius GmbH want to combine a new measuring device for fiber layer orientation with an innovative laser-based repair process.

Defects in FRP pieces may be production or operation-related. Whether or not repair is cost-effective depends on the geometry of the defective area, the tools...
