How can we power a planet hungry for energy and protect our natural resources? The Siemens answer to that question is offshore windparks for efficient power distribution and transmission.

As global energy demands continue to grow, ever scarcer fossil resources are forcing us to rethink our approach. New ways to generate environmentally friendly energy are needed. Wind power plays a key role here. A successful example is Lillgrund in Sweden, one of the largest offshore wind parks in Europe, built by Siemens for the Vattenfall Energy Group.

Under its corporate social responsibility initiative, global engineering powerhouse Siemens is attempting to answer questions on balancing the need for power with the need  for a cleaner, greener world and in that attempt to also align products and solutions to meet Earth's need for sustainability.

Siemens develops and builds fossil fuel power plants and power-generating components as well as wind turbines. It also counts as its USP instrumentation and control systems, fuel cell technology and extensive services.

Also, the Siemens Power Transmission and Distribution portfolio (PTD) has been carefully structured with one thing in mind that Innovations in Power Transmission and Distribution are necessary to guarantee reliable power supply for the growing world economy in the future.

Siemens consolidates its innovative offerings in the Energy sector by combining its full range expertise in the areas of Power Generation (PG) and Power Transmission & Distribution (PTD). Utilizing the most advanced plant diagnostics and systems technologies, Siemens provides comprehensive services for complete power plants and for rotating machines such as gas and steam turbines, generators and compressors.

The Power Generation Automation department offers a wide range of standard products, systems and services solutions applicable in all types of power plants, i.e. thermal, gas based, combined cycle, captive, hydro. With its widespread marketing network across the country, the department caters to local and global market requirements.
