Aldar partners with Siemens on Saadiyat Grove, Abu Dhabi

by Madaline Dunn

Aldar Properties signed a partnership with Siemens at the World Future Energy Summit (WFES) today to employ smart technology at Saadiyat Grove, an integrated mixed-use project under development in Abu Dhabi. 

The partnership will see Aldar deploy the UAE’s first cloud-based smart district management system across the entirety of the Saadiyat Grove community, utilising the Siemens Xcelerator portfolio and its cloud-based Building X platform.

According to the two parties, the project represents the most significant investment globally to date in smart technology at a mixed-use residential and commercial real estate development.

The system will include advanced energy analytics to support emission reductions and will also deploy IoT sensors to monitor air quality and noise levels.

 AI technologies will also be implemented for safety and security purposes as well as for predictive maintenance. 

The platform will also monitor asset lifecycles and feature digital twins of the district to optimise operational efficiencies. 

These solutions will be incorporated into an advanced analytics application that can be scaled across Aldar’s portfolio, including new and existing developments. 

Jonathan Emery, Chief Executive Officer at Aldar Development, said that introducing the UAE’s first cloud-based district management solution at Saadiyat Grove represents a “major advancement” in the application of digital technology at scale in the real estate sector. 

“Our partnership with Siemens forms part of Aldar’s ongoing commitment to transforming lives and landscapes for positive impact, leveraging innovation to introduce new sustainable living solutions that deliver meaningful emission reductions. Implementing this advanced smart district management system at Saadiyat Grove establishes a benchmark for smart living in Abu Dhabi and we look forward to expanding its use across Saadiyat Cultural District and beyond,” commented Emery.

Helmut von Struve, CEO of Siemens in the Middle East and the UAE, added: “We are honoured to work with Aldar on this pioneering project. Using the latest offerings from Siemens Xcelerator, our open digital business platform that enables digital transformation faster and at a larger scale, Aldar will be able to manage its portfolio more efficiently and provide the district’s residents and visitors a more comfortable and safer environment in which to live and work.”
