Siemens showcases smart city solutions at Vibrant Gujarat

 Gujarat as a base for manufacturing and business operations has witnessed unparalleled success in the past decade, and Vibrant Gujarat has been making crucial contributions to the state’s economic progress. With increasing globalisation and urbanisation, it is essential that India develops sustainable and smart cities as envisaged by the Government of India. This makes the theme ‘Sustainable Cities – Smart Future’ highly relevant, along with Make in India and 24/7 Power.
Siemens has showcased its range of integrated solutions for building sustainable, smart cities at the recently concluded Vibrant Gujarat Summit 2015.
Globally, Siemens provides technology solutions for setting up intelligent (smart), sustainable cities. With solutions for smart grid, building technologies, mobility and power distribution, Siemens has set up smart cities in Vienna and New York, and is already involved in the Restructured Accelerated Power Development and Reforms Programme (R-APDRP) Program of the Government of India for installing smart grid solutions in multiple cities in India. It has also been a technology solution provider for the Indian Railways for close to six decades. Over the years, it has further built capabilities in the areas of metros, integrated mobility platforms, airport links, passenger coaches, rail services and maintenance, urban traffic control, rail signalling and other state-of-the-art transportation solutions.
