Siemens inaugurates new wind power training center in Bremen

Bremen, Germany, (PresseBox) - Siemens has officially opened a new wind power training center in the city of Bremen. With immediate effect, the technology company now offers a broad-based qualification program for customer personnel and service technicians from around the globe. The training center is an important part of the European service headquarters for wind power in Bremen and, together with three other training facilities in Europe and the U.S., meets Siemens global training needs for wind power services.

"We see service as much more than a regular look into the nacelle. And precisely because we attach such importance to service, we have decided to set up a training center for our service team here in Bremen," said René Umlauft, CEO of the Renewable Energy Division of Siemens Energy. "Here we also want to give our customers the opportunity to have their personnel trained in line with the latest developments."

The new Siemens training center with a surface area of more than 600 m² offers a wide variety of qualification and training options covering all aspects relaring to the technology and operational reliability- an important contribution toward the reliable, efficient operation of wind turbines over the long term. The central feature of the new training center is the original-nacelle of a Siemens 2.3-MW wind turbine. A simulator, ladder structures, electrical and hydraulic modules, and a maintenance crane make training possible under virtually realistic conditions.

Wind turbines and the associated services are important features of the Siemens environmental portfolio. In 2008, revenue from the products and solutions of Siemens environmental portfolio was nearly EUR19 billion, which is equivalent to around a quarter of Siemens total revenue.

The Siemens Energy Sector is the world's leading supplier of a complete spectrum of products, services and solutions for the generation, transmission and distribution of power and for the extraction, conversion and transport of oil and gas.In fiscal 2008 (ended September 30), the Energy Sector had revenues of approximately EUR22.6 billion and received new orders totaling approximately EUR33.4 billion and posted a profit of EUR1.4 billion. On September 30, 2008, the Energy Sector had a work force of approximately 83,500. Further information is available at: www.siemens.com/energy.
