The new facility will assist several industries in reaching greater integration and digitisation, in addition to providing a platform to develop local talent, delivering end-to-end integration and visibility, and making operations efficient and lean, said a press release on Wednesday.
In light of the UAE’s national Industry 4.0 agenda, the smart centre will benefit from the power of the Schneider Electric Industrial Internet of Things (IoT) and smart manufacturing.
Featuring Schneider Electric’s EcoStruxure™ architecture and platform, the new UAE facility is the sixth Smart Distribution Center launched in 2019, following inaugurations in Australia, China, Brazil, France, and India.
Thanks to its strong record of accomplishment of 30 years across the region and the UAE, Schneider Electric succeeded to elevate Dubai to become one of the firm’s four international hubs after Paris, Boston, and Hong Kong.
The digitisation of Dubai’s Smart Distribution Center will help in cutting delivery time to customers and optimising supply chain operations. Moreover, it will increase the end-to-end efficiency of operations up to 5% and reduce the overall power consumption saving approximately from 10% to 12%, adding to a host of benefits across all layers of the company’s logistical operations.
Some of the improvements include agile management and process efficiency, asset performance management, empowered operators, and energy efficiency and reliability.
“Through the implementation of our Schneider Electric EcoStruxure architecture and platform we are enabling a wide range of industries, as well as government institutions in the UAE, to fulfil their long-term ambitions for digital transformation,” said Ahmed Khashan, president of Gulf Countries- and Pakistan-Schneider Electric.
