"Our location in Charlotte is a critical part of Siemens Energy global manufacturing network, serving not only the U.S. but other regions in the Americas as well," said Michael Suess, CEO of the Siemens Energy Fossil Power Division. "We have manufacturing locations strategically positioned all over the world in order to best serve our customers with solutions that are delivered more quickly and cost efficiently." The U.S. is one of Siemens' largest markets. Siemens-built power plants already supply one-third of North America's electricity.
Generators and the servicing of steam turbines and generators are part of Siemens' solutions for an efficient, environmentally friendly energy supply. Modernizing the power plants increases their efficiency, and every increase in efficiency means less CO2 emissions and thus better climate compatibility. Siemens generated EUR19 billion, or one quarter of its annual revenues, with environmentally friendly technologies, making it the world's largest green infrastructure supplier.
