TUV SUD opens digital service centre of excellence in Singapore

GLOBAL testing, inspection, certification and training provider TUV SUD on Thursday opened its new Digital Service Centre of Excellence (COE) in Singapore, making it the first operational centre of its kind to be set up outside of TUV SUD's global headquarters in Germany.

With an investment of over S$40 million within the next three years and an expected strength of over 50 people, this COE will specialise in providing solutions for new technologies involving predictive data analytics, industrial cyber security and functional safety for evolving smart market segments, such as smart infrastructure and Industry 4.0, it said.

The key objective of the COE is to use TUV SUD's competency in functional safety and industrial cyber security to develop bespoke services to enhance digital transformation, it added.

This is aligned with Singapore's Smart Nation vision - to integrate technology into the management of infrastructure and industries, with the aim to improve the lives of citizens, drive labour productivity and achieve greater operational efficiencies.

Market voices on:

"Companies looking to capitalise on these emerging technological trends can work with TÜV SÜD through its Digital Service CoE in Singapore, to co-innovate verification, and potentially certification, methods for new solutions to ensure they are suitable for large scale deployment and commercialisation," it said.

There will also be an opportunity for it to engage with industry experts in the testing and developing of innovative, needs-focused services - allowing it to deploy its expertise to other markets in the Asia-Pacific region and beyond, it said.

The first example of one such project involves solutions catered for smart homes, with TUV SUD testing functional safety, cyber security, as well as the reliability and interoperability of components and installations within the household.
