Siemens has announced the creation of a newly integrated Energy Service division for the UK, which brings together the businesses responsible for servicing conventional power plants and wind farms. The new division, Siemens Energy Service UK and Ireland, based in Newcastle, will offer significant benefits to customers, by creating an integrated business to meet all their long term service and maintenance needs.
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".
