Siemens SI has over 70,400 people globally as of September 30, 2021, and is based in Zug, Switzerland. In turn, Siemens AG employs around 303,000 people around the world. AG collaborates across industries to help design resource-efficient manufacturing, resilient supply networks, and smart buildings and grids. They also work in transportation and advanced healthcare, with SI specializing in effectively linking energy systems, buildings, and industries.

The latest advancements are part of Siemens Desigo CC, a Siemens Smart Infrastructure integrated building management platform that links and manages essential and non-critical building systems.

Operators will be able to see, monitor, control, and optimize important building management systems, energy performance, and the WSCO via a single control panel. Advanced power and energy distribution management functions are also available.

The goal of customized power distribution systems is to assist in maintaining a consistent, safe power supply to the data center. At the same time, the facility is fueled by renewable energy and may sell waste heat.

The data center in Tallinn, Estonia, aims for a Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) score of 1.2, compared to the industry average of roughly 1.6. According to Siemens, AI-powered software optimizes cooling for energy savings and reliable operation of key infrastructure.

Greenergy Data Centers have used the company’s building management software (BMS), energy and power management software (EPMS), and White Space Cooling Optimisation (WSCO) technology to reduce energy consumption, ensure thermal protection, and manage the reliable operation of critical infrastructure.

Kert Evert, who serves the role of CDO at Greenergy Data Centers, had the following to say:

This new complex conforms to all of the highest international security standards and aims to operate at 25% higher energy efficiency than the market’s average. Working with Siemens, we are able to have a single-vendor concept from A-Z, and together we have created the region’s most advanced and efficient data center, creating more favorable conditions for both foreign and local companies to offer their services on the Estonian or Baltic markets. Technologically speaking, we are at the absolute top of the world.

According to Kert Evert, the new complex is an important example of the role automation technology plays in establishing efficient and well-managed data centers. He claims that the global relevance of Siemens technology will assist data centers in different areas in meeting their objectives.
