Siemens has announced the creation of a newly integrated Energy Service division for the UK, which brings together businesses servicing conventional power plants and wind farms. Siemens say their customers will be on the receiving end of significant benefits as a result of the integration including reduced costs and greater operational efficiencies.
Changes within the business are part of a global integration process within Siemens, in which the global Service Renewables business has become part of the global Energy Service Division.
Carl Ennis, Managing Director of Energy Service UK said: “We have a huge advantage in bringing together the vibrant wind power service business which is experiencing huge growth, and the mature and successful fossil power plant service business, with a strong global footprint. Our combined strengths enhance our service offer to customers and also creates new market opportunities.”
Mr Ennis said the company was confident about the renewable future: “This could not be a more exciting time for the UK Service business, with the high growth projected in renewables, as well as the growth of the global gas turbine market and combine cycle power plants. We are positive about the benefits that the newly integrated business will bring to our customers and employees through enhanced career opportunities across a bigger, more diverse business”.
The new division of Siemens Energy Service UK and Ireland will be based in Newcastle.
