Together with Chempark operator Currenta, possible areas for the installation of a 5G test field in the northern Chempark environment are currently being explored. This test site will also be made available to the city of Dormagen as part of a cooperation to test urban use cases.
For the period from June to September 2021, SWD, the city of Dormagen and Currenta, with the involvement of Chempark companies and regional innovation drivers, conducted a series of workshops to identify use cases and business models. The results were submitted to the Zukunftsregion Rheinisches Revier via a project outline in the "REVIER.GESTALTEN" funding call, which was given a first star ("Substantial project idea") in the supervisory board meeting in December 2021. The aim is now to build on this to prepare a corresponding funding application.
With the help of the 5G mobile communications standard and other wireless technologies, such as LoRaWAN, IoT applications are to be made tangible for industry and municipalities and matured as a standard in Dormagen.
