Siemens and Grundfos sign digital partnership to tackle global water challenges and save energy

30 September 2019

Siemens and Grundfos have signed a digital partnership framework for strategic cooperation. The new partnership focuses on the complementary products and solutions provided by both parties in the areas of water and wastewater applications, industrial automation and building technology.

Both parties are entering into the partnership with the aim of achieving sustainable global change by joining forces in digital solutions.
 
"Siemens and Grundfos are combining the competences of both companies in order to support our joint customer base in their digital transformation and in the implementation of intelligent solutions. Solutions from our Digital Enterprise portfolio can be used, for example, to increase the uptime of pumps and motors and to optimise their operation. Our MindSphere open cloud-based IoT operating system, combined with Grundfos IoT solutions, can optimise pump and motor schedules in order to maximise uptime and minimise energy consumption," said Klaus Helmrich, Member of the Managing Board of Siemens AG and CEO of Digital Industries. In addition, MindSphere can be used to acquire data and knowledge, which enables us to operate buildings in a more user-friendly and efficient way.

"Our purpose is to pioneer solutions that contribute to solving the world's water and climate challenges. To live up to that purpose, we are on a major digital transformation journey to supplement our pump solutions business by also becoming a digital solution and service provider. Partnering with Siemens is a big step in this direction," said Mads Nipper, CEO, Grundfos. He adds: "Our companies have a strong position based on quality offerings and we want to strengthen this position by adding a digital layer. Ten percent of all electric energy in the world is used by pumps. Through this partnership we can provide intelligent, efficient solutions for reducing energy consumption, making a substantial difference when it comes to combatting climate change."
