One of the most debated topics influencing innovation is digitalisation and its impact on the future of employment. It is met with equal parts excitement and trepidation. No matter how you look at it, digital transformation and a truly connected global economy is already upon us, says Sabine Dall’Omo, CEO for Siemens Southern and Eastern Africa.

“There is an opportunity, especially in Africa to embrace new and exponential technologies combined with human talent to accelerate industrialisation and drive economic growth. One of the pillars of digitalisation is industrial networks and security and it is crucial that engineers understand the role of this technology in the future of mining,” she says.

Siemens donates equipment to Anglo American Platinum training centre

Dall’Omo adds that this is why Siemens has provided automation equipment and industrial networks to assist Anglo American Platinum’s Engineering Skills Training Centre (ESTC). The two companies have been in partnership since 2010 and have seen approximately 298 artisans successfully trained and qualified at this centre.

“This vital contribution by Siemens to ESTC will significantly contribute towards the development of the human resource capabilities of our artisans and will help broaden the thinking of the students to explore new career capabilities.  We celebrate the handover of the Siemens Simatic Wall and look forward to the role it will play in training the current and next generation of skilled artisans,” says Gary Humphries, Anglo American Platinum’s Executive Head for Processing.

“We are ramping up our commitment to the region to meet our customer’s needs, expanding our portfolio for digital enterprises, supporting our customers in the manufacturing and process industries with digitalisation, customisation and efficiency improvements and investing in equipping our future generation with the right skills,” Dall’Omo concludes.
