ROTEC and Siemens have signed a cooperation agreement to build a unified information environment in the energy sector. The document was signed by Ivan Panasyuk, General Director of ROTEC JSC, and Zhanna Shalygina, Director of Siemens Digital Industries in Russia.
The agreement provides for cooperation between the parties in the field of automation, dispatching energy facilities and developing systems for predictive analytics in Russia using solutions which are already in use in both companies. The partners intend to support each other in scientific and research activities, share information on their ideas and developments in the field of automation and dispatching, carry out marketing research and other undertakings.
“Cooperating with Siemens is an excellent opportunity for ROTEC to scale up our solutions, which already ensure the reliable operation of facilities generating 3.5 GW in Russia and Kazakhstan. I’m sure that through combining our efforts and using the unique expertise of ROTEC in the field of predictive analytics and monitoring of all types of power-generating turbines and an extensive range of industrial equipment, we will be able to establish a new dynamic in the processes of industrial digitization, to achieve safer and more effective operation,” noted Ivan Panasyuk.
“The implementation of predictive programs and analytic tools by companies in recent years has become a noticeable trend, and demand is growing steadily. They are especially important for infrastructural facilities where the cost of fault, error or downtime is extremely high. The signed agreement is an extension of our collaboration with ROTEC JSC. Together, we shall strive to create systems for predictive analytics, primarily for large industrial and energy facilities. The advanced technical solutions offered by Siemens and the experience of ROTEC will help companies to move from the concept of problem solving to the idea of problem prevention, which allows for considerable cost saving and production process optimization”, said Zhanna Shalygina.
