Singapore is the first government to build a country-wide digital twin.

Here’s Why Investors are Starting to Pay Attention to Infrastructure Digital Twins

By Steve Cockerell, Industry Marketing Director, Rail & Transit, Bentley Systems

Discussing the findings of CDBB’s most recent whitepaper ‘How finance and digital twins can shape a better future for the planet’ in the May 25 episode of ‘The Engineers Collective’, former executive director of CDBB Alexandra Bolton commented that in order to meet our biggest challenges “adoption of the Gemini Principles, ensuring data is open and shared in a secure and resilient fashion, and collaboration, was absolutely vital, as none of us either individually or as our organizations can do this alone, we need to collaborate to make this work.”

Bolton continued, “Think about data as an asset that becomes more valuable when its shared and think about data not just from your new assets that you might be building, but from existing assets, and think about that data across the whole lifecycle, across sectors, and across boundaries.”

If this sounds like a step too far, an impossible dream, consider Singapore, which just became the first government to build a country-wide digital twin. Open data, connected systems, and technology will aid in the building of more sustainable, resilient, and smart communities, as well as in the deployment of renewable energy and protection against climate change and rising sea levels.
