At the Soccerex Asian Forum 2016, held at the Grand Hyatt Doha from 5-6 December, Siemens will showcase its complete infrastructure solutions for key development projects ahead of the 2022 FIFA World Cup™.

Siemens has provided complete infrastructure solutions for major sports events worldwide and technological solutions to more than 150 stadiums over the past 12 years. During the event the company will showcase its integrated portfolio, which contributes substantially to sports venues and enables them to achieve a high level of sustainability and security. Siemens’ offering for smart stadiums includes Total Building Solutions in addition to stadium assessment, technical concept, value engineering, products and solutions, technical services and maintenance and integrated security solutions.

In particular, Siemens will highlight its expertise and implementation of its solutions at the 2014 FIFA World Cup™ in Brazil. Siemens’ sophisticated security, safety and building automation technology ensured that the Mané Garrincha stadium in Brasilia, Brazil received LEED Platinum sustainability certification, making it one of the greenest sports arena in the world. Siemens technologies for energy efficiency can help reduce CO2 emissions and waste at stadiums by controlling water and energy consumption. The Siemens building automation software installed at the Mané Garrincha stadium controls the consumption, metering and utilization of water and power, the use of air conditioning and the integration of fire detection, alarm and security systems.

Additionally, Siemens will present how Go Electric’, a fully integrated power supply solution for stadiums, can secure energy distribution in all critical venues. The company’s latest innovation in this area is a modular electrical energy storage system called Siestorage. The energy storage system secures a stable and reliable power supply on match days. The system integrates renewable energy and optimizes the usage of fossil generation to a modern eco-friendly grid. Siestorage combines cutting-edge power electronics for grid applications and high-performance Li-ion batteries.

“We look forward to highlighting how our high-tech portfolio can contribute to making stadiums greener during Soccerex 2016,” said Jan Schoenig, Business Development Manager for Siemens in Qatar. “Siemens has contributed to countless major events, providing public transport, security, power generation, water treatment solutions, and many other critical products and services to cities around the world. We believe success is based on high-quality products, systems and solutions, strong partnerships, integrated project teams and world-class project management”.
