Siemens’ Energy Management Division and Bentley Systems have recently announced an agreement to jointly develop solutions to accelerate digitalisation of planning, design, and operations for power utilities and industrial power customers. This offering will integrate Bentley Systems’ utility design and geographic information systems (GIS) capabilities with Siemens’ Power System Simulation (PSS) Suite, with specific solutions for power transmission, power distribution, and industrial facilities. Combining these two platforms provides customers with Bentley’s expertise in 3D infrastructure asset modelling and GIS with Siemens’ knowledge and renowned experience in energy system planning and simulation.
Speaking about this alliance, Ralf Christian, CEO, Siemens Energy Management Division, said, “The energy industry trend toward decentralisation represents a challenge for power producers and consumers. Our strategic alliance with Bentley Systems will help them better leverage this changing landscape through the combination of our powerful solutions. Siemens and Bentley share a commitment to openness, interoperability, and the common goal is to help our customers drive the digital enterprise across their supply chains.”
