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: Goodbye ground control: autonomous nanosatellites

The University of Würzburg has two new space projects in the pipeline which are concerned with the observation of planets and autonomous fault correction aboard satellites. The German Federal Ministry of Economic Affairs and Energy funds the projects with around 1.6 million euros.

Im Focus: Flow phenomena on solid surfaces: Physicists highlight key role played by boundary layer velocity

Physicists from Saarland University and the ESPCI in Paris have shown how liquids on solid surfaces can be made to slide over the surface a bit like a bobsleigh on ice. The key is to apply a coating at the boundary between the liquid and the surface that induces the liquid to slip. This results in an increase in the average flow velocity of the liquid and its throughput. This was demonstrated by studying the behaviour of droplets on surfaces with different coatings as they evolved into the equilibrium state. The results could prove useful in optimizing industrial processes, such as the extrusion of plastics.

The study has been published in the respected academic journal PNAS (Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America).

Im Focus: Superconductivity: footballs with no resistance

Indications of light-induced lossless electricity transmission in fullerenes contribute to the search for superconducting materials for practical applications.

Superconductors have long been confined to niche applications, due to the fact that the highest temperature at which even the best of these materials becomes...

Im Focus: Wbp2 is a novel deafness gene

Researchers at King’s College London and the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute in the United Kingdom have for the first time demonstrated a direct link between the Wbp2 gene and progressive hearing loss. The scientists report that the loss of Wbp2 expression leads to progressive high-frequency hearing loss in mouse as well as in two clinical cases of children with deafness with no other obvious features. The results are published in EMBO Molecular Medicine.

The scientists have shown that hearing impairment is linked to hormonal signalling rather than to hair cell degeneration. Wbp2 is known as a transcriptional...
