Three-day technical courses are helping sales and support engineers, system integrators and end users to increase their level of expertise and understanding of Westermo solutions and the requirements for implementing reliable industrial networks.

Westermo and its partner Gross Automation work closely together to provide industrial networking solutions for critical applications in a broad range of industries across the United States and Canada. Helping Gross Automation engineers to enhance their levels of expertise, Westermo US held its first Certified Engineer training course in May at Gross Automation’s brand new Customer Experience Center in Wisconsin.

The course was run by instructor Mikael Puman, who travelled from Sweden to offer participants the benefit of his extensive knowledge of Westermo’s WeOS operating software and experience in implementing industrial networks. Using hands on training with the latest Westermo equipment, the Westermo Certified Engineer course aims to provide data communication engineers with a greater understanding of the Westermo product range, the WeOS operating system, and data communication solutions.

“The certified training courses are an excellent way of improving the skillset of our sales engineers. Mikael is a great instructor. He not only provided our team with a huge amount of useful technical information, but also reconfirmed our confidence in the products and support offered by Westermo.” – Bob Gross, President and CEO of Gross Automation.

As a result of the recent training course, eight additional engineers from Gross Automation have become Westermo Certified Engineers.

Westermo and Easy World Technology jointly participated in this year's Middle East Rail exhibition which took place on March 17th-18th in Dubai, The United Arab Emirates.  Middle East Rail 2015 attracted 6,000 visitors (up from 4,000 visitors in 2013) and hosted over 200 exhibitors (up from 120 exhibitors in 2013).The event, the largest of its kind in the region, attracted visitors from all over the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) and has become a focal point for networking  within the rail sector and a showcase for new technology. Westermo's  on-board train and trackside solutions, including the new RFIR, where on show during the 2 day event. The stand, which covered 12 sqm, was well visited by representatives from a great number of companies such as Arabian Railway Company (Saudi Arabia), Etihad Rail (United Arab Emirates), Thales, Ansaldo STS, Bombardier, Siemens, Teleste, CAF and Talgo, to name a few. Westermo was the only IDC supplier with a stand at the exhibition and this of course compounded the effect of brand recognition.

The growing interest in railway projects and related activities in the Middle East is in line with the recent launch of new railway projects throughout the region . The MENA region and the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC)*  in particular is experiencing a large volume of new railway projects and investments. From Saudi Arabia and The United Arab Emirates' launch of  nationwide railway lines to Oman's announcement of cross border railway investment plans, billions of USD are being earmarked for rail and metro projects for the first time. Today, there are more than USD 200 billion worth of rail and metro projects either planned for the coming 7 years or under way in the Middle East. An example of this is the GCC's first high-speed railway, the Haramain High Speed Rail project in Saudi Arabia that links Jeddah with Makkah, Madinah and Rabigh. The project is scheduled to open this year.

Alessio Bencivenni, Country Manager, Thales Egypt visited Westermo's stand and commented "We have worked extensively with Westermo's trackside solutions and we are convinced that the quality and rugged design of your products represent the right offering for this region". Due to the success of the event and the good lead generation, Easy World Technology has already reserved a stand at next year's Middle East Rail Exhibition in Dubai. 

* The Gulf Cooperation Council is a regional intergovernmental political and economic union consisting of Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.

Westermo leads the way for mission critical industrial networking

Reliable, resilient and robust mission critical network solutions are the foundation of modern industrial automation systems. Today, everything from critical business systems to transportation solutions are controlled and monitored through networks.  Westermo is a market leader for solutions at the edge of these mission critical networks.

From 25th to 27 th of November the world’s leading companies within the industrial automation industry gathered at the SPS IPC Drives exhibition in Nuremberg, Germany. SPS IPC Drives is a key event in the industrial automation market. This year the event attracted 1600 exhibitors and 56000 visitors from all over the world. New products, innovations and trends within industrial automation technology were in focus.

During the exhibition Westermo promoted the Edge Networks Solutions concept and released several products developed for the edge of mission critical networks. Every second of the day vital data is collected at the edge of networks and transferred to the core of companies’ business systems. Decisions made at the core can then be communicated back to the edge of the network to control business assets. Environmental conditions are harsh at the network edge, making reliable, resilient and robust solutions vital.

Westermo´s presence at SPS IPC Drives and the introduction of the Edge Networks Solutions concept is a part of an ambitious three year growth plan, as a result of a 175 million investment announced earlier this year. With products and solutions developed for the edge of mission critical networks, Westermo is leading the way within the international industrial networking market.
