An order for 175 Sicore Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) cameras has been placed with Siemens ITS by 7iD, an Austrian system integration company based in Graz. This follows more than seven months of trials including a technical proof of concept against a number of competitors in the market where Siemens’ ANPR performance in both detection and read rate tested successfully. The cameras will be installed into a logistics environment as part of a larger project, which also involves the installation of Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) devices supplied by the Siemens Process Industries and Drives Division.

Siemens is getting behind the Hull UK City of Culture programme by backing a major artwork that has been installed into the heart of the city. Siemens is backing the installation of 'Blade' by multi-media artist Nayan Kulkarni, who has reinterpreted a 75m long wind turbine blade as a monumental sculpture installed across the historic Queen Victoria Square.
The first turbine components have been dispatched by sea from Siemens’ new offshore wind power facilities in Hull. The Sea Challenger, a jack-up ship specially designed for installing offshore wind turbines, set sail with towers, blades and nacelles from the newly-constructed harbour at the Siemens site in Hull, signalling the start of the first project for the new facility.
