Siemens and software firm launch academy for energy sector

The learning sessions will be spread over three facilities in Germany, the US and China

Siemens is teaming up with a US software firm to establish an academy to help energy firms streamline their operations.

The company says its new initiative, spread over three facilities in Germany, the US and China, will examine new ways to increase competitiveness and operating revenues in the oil, gas, and global energy markets, where existing business models are shifting.

The academy will provide sessions focusing on real-world examples of the key aspects of a digital approach to capital project delivery and asset operations.

The organisations behind the scheme say participants will learn how to implement clear, revised strategies, improve collaboration, communication and co-ordination and help boost project efficiency.

Eckard Eberle, CEO of Process Automation at Siemens, said: “Our shared vision for the academy is to offer a practical, effective means for asset owners, decision makers and programme and project managers to understand the interactions and balance between teams, processes and technologies so they can see improved project delivery and asset performance.”
