Changes within the UK service business are part of a wider global integration process within Siemens, in which the global Service Renewables business has become part of the global Energy Service Division. Siemens’ customers are likely to realise significant benefits as a result of the integration including reduced costs and greater operational efficiencies. The newly integrated division is also focused on driving zero harm health and safety and customer service best practice, as well as supporting the growth of Renenewables in the UK, especially offshore wind power through the Crown Estates’ Round Three development programme.
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 create new market opportunities".
The UK Energy Service business is supported by the world-class Integrated Energy Service Training Facility. Established in 2008, the facility represents an investment of almost £8 million over the last three years and boasts a fossil power training bay, with full-scale steam and gas turbines, where trainees will undertake their practical training. In 2009, the Centre opened the UK’s first ever dedicated wind power training school, complete with a fully loaded 2.3MW nacelle, training towers as well as work stations for apprentices and service technicians. The training facility also maintains strong links with local schools such as Sir Charles Parson's School and Specialist Science College, St Cuthbert's RC High School and George Stephenson High School, as well as Tyne Metropolitan College and the Universities of Newcastle, Durham and Northumbria.
Speaking about the future, Ennis said: "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".
