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

Siemens and Grundfos have signed a digital partnership framework for strategic cooperation between the two companies based on complementary portfolios and competences will support our customers when implementing intelligent solutions. Cooperation to tackle global water challenges: increase energy efficiency and reduce water consumption. Focused on three main areas: water and wastewater applications, industrial automation and building technology

The new partnership focuses on the complementary products and solutions provided by both parties in three main areas: water and wastewater applications, industrial automation and building technology.

By combining their complementary expertise and knowledge in a long-term co-development digital partnership, both Siemens and Grundfos will benefit customers by creating synergies that extend beyond the sum of their parts. Both parties are entering into this partnership with the aim of achieving sustainable global change by joining forces in digital solutions.

Solutions from our Digital Enterprise portfolio can be used, for example, to increase the uptime of pumps and motors and to optimize their operation. Our MindSphere open cloud-based IoT operating system combined with Grundfos IoT solutions can optimize pump and motor schedules in order to maximize uptime and minimize energy consumption. 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.

Siemens and Grundfos pledge to lead the way on global sustainability and share the aim of making a positive impact on Sustainable Development Goals 6 (Clean water and sanitation) and 13 (Climate action).

By 2030, Grundfos aspires to be Climate Positive, and the company aims to halve its own water consumption by 2025. By 2030, Grundfos will have contributed to providing safely managed drinking water to 300 million people in need. In addition, through water efficiency and water treatment, the company will have saved 50 billion cubic meters of fresh water.
