Saudi SWCC in deal with Emerson to bolster digital transformation

Global automation technology and software leader Emerson and Saline Water Conversion Corporation (SWCC), a Saudi government corporation, have signed a memorandum of understanding in which both parties have agreed to explore opportunities to achieve SWCC's operational, enterprise and sustainability goals using Emerson’s expertise in sensing, software, analytics and data management. - TradeArabia

The strategic collaboration between both companies paves the way to kickstart SWCC’s digital transformation journey while also supporting its sustainability and decarbonisation initiatives through the deployment of energy management systems, predictive emissions monitoring systems, and IIoT-capable sensors to provide real-time data from the field.

Emerson has always been an advocate of using digital transformation to accelerate sustainability and decarbonisation initiatives. We are well equipped with the experience and expertise to provide for the successful development and deployment of SWCC’s digital transformation strategy, as evidenced by our work in other projects of the same nature.

Vidya Ramnath, President at Emerson for the Middle East and Africa region

In addition to serving as a technology, software and services provider, Emerson will collaborate with SWCC on innovation, research and development of emerging technologies that will inspire new solutions for both companies, as well as opportunities for sustainable industry-wide growth.

The memorandum of understanding marks an important milestone in our digitalisation journey. Collaboration with strategic partners such as Emerson will enhance learning and accelerate adoption of digital technologies that support our overall business objectives.
