Siemens has announced the opening of Egypt’s first Smart Cities Experience Centre, offering customers an immersive experience that combines real and digital worlds.

The Smart Cities Experience Centre aims to provide a rich experience based on real project experience and aims to help ensure a successful smart city realisation. Under this concept, Siemens claims visitors can understand the benefits of transforming current communities into smart cities.

They can also observe the latest smart infrastructure technologies for buildings and cities, including low-voltage to medium-voltage electrification, energy management, intelligent power distribution solutions, and Scada systems for utilities management such as water, gas, and electricity.

“The inauguration of Egypt’s first Smart Cities Experience Centre developed by Siemens is an important breakthrough that aligns with Egypt’s digital development strategy,” said Dr Mohamed Shaker, Egypt’s minister of electricity and renewable energy.

“We encourage the role of the private sector in the state’s comprehensive development process by using all aspects of emerging technologies and innovations to enable a fully integrated and efficient smart city platform.”

According to Siemens, the inauguration of the centre in Egypt complements the country’s digital strategy, which involves the implementation of 17 smart cities. These cities aim to leverage the latest technologies in order to facilitate the transition towards an integrated digital society.

“As one of Egypt’s strategic partners and a major contributor to technology and infrastructure, Siemens Smart Cities Experience Centre supports the country’s sustainability strategy and accelerates the journey to a digital economy through smart electrification and building automation,” said Mostafa El-Bagoury, CEO of Siemens Egypt.

“To further this vision, we are confident the facility will provide valuable hands-on experience for the government, its agencies, private developers, and infrastructure consultants, enabling them to witness the transition to a smart city firsthand.”
