eaders in energy infrastructure, Siemens Energy, has partnered with [nofollow]Librestream, provider of augmented reality and remote collaboration solutions to utilise their Onsight Augmented Reality platform for its Connected Worker solutions.
Head of Controls and Digitalization at Siemens Energy, Laura Anderson stated:
“Librestream has almost 20 years of remote collaboration experience in the industrial market, which is evident in the depth of their platform and global customer footprint,”
“We require a partner that is capable of meeting the strict security requirements of our market and can immediately deliver access to remote experts, content and procedures across every environment. Equally as important, we need a partner with an aligned vision and product roadmap that builds on our leadership position and guides our customers into the future of the connected worker.”
The new partnership sees Siemens Energy deploying the Connected Worker solution across all of its field service workers and external contractors, as well as enabling Siemens Energy to directly offer Connected Worker solutions to its vast customer base.
By using the Connected Worker solution, teams are able to remotely inspect, diagnose and maintain equipment, including onshore and offshore oil and gas platforms, plant instrumentation and controls as well as industrial steam and gas turbines. Some of the benefits of deploying the Connected Worker solution includes increased productivity and worker safety, higher uptime for customers and faster resolution time.
CEO at Librestream, John Bishop said:
“We greatly value our partnership and are honoured to be selected for the Siemens Energy Connected Worker solution. This partnership brings together two best-in-classes companies and addresses a growing requirement to digitally enable frontline workers at asset-intensive companies for greater productivity and safety coupled with critical field insights and cost efficiencies. We look forward to continuing the digital worker journey with Siemens Energy.”
The package that Siemens Energy has received includes the full Librestream Onsight platform including digital workflow procedures, workspace document management, remote expert assistance, artificial intelligence capabilities, and specialty field inspection hardware. The Librestream solution also integrates with Microsoft Teams to quickly extend and streamline collaboration throughout Siemens Energy.
Siemens Energy’s Connected Worker solution includes the following Librestream elements:
- Remote expert collaboration optimised for challenging field environments;
- Specialty field hardware including the Onsight Hub adapter and Onsight Cube, an Ex-certified thermal imaging wearable;
- Integration with collaboration systems such as Microsoft Teams to streamline communications throughout the organisation;
- Artificial intelligence such as Computer Vision object recognition with integrated IoT data;
- Digital workflow procedures and document management to guide, capture and distribute tribal knowledge;
The global company is often at the forefront of leading edge technology solutions, which work across industries, including energy, manufacturing, infrastructure and automation and the recent announcement is another demonstration of Siemens making significant moves to deploy extended reality solutions across the business, which is likely to continue to implement Extended Reality technology throughout its operations into the future.
