- Humanitarian assistance for those impacted by the Morroco earthquake and Liby flooding
- Companies will match every euro donatd by their people
- Siemens Caring Hands e.V. supports relief organizations on the ground
and Siemens Healthineers have each provided €500,000 in immediate assistance to
mitigate the suffering of earthquake and flood victims in Morrocco and Libya
and to support rescue efforts. In addition, both companies have called on the
people they employ to make donations. Every euro contributed as part of this
donation drive will be matched.
National Office of Electricity and Drinking Water (ONEE) launches an ambitious
transformation project in collaboration with Atos and Siemens
Atos, Siemens and Morocco’s National
Office of Electricity and Drinking Water (Office National de l'Électricité et
de l'Eau potable, ONEE) are pleased to announce their collaboration on a large
project for the smart management of the local power grid (“smart grid”). Atos
and Siemens are working on deploying a smart energy metering platform that will
allow ONEE to efficiently process the data collected by more than 100,000 smart
meters that will be installed across the country, thus optimizing energy
consumption and management of the national grid while meeting Morocco's growing
Challenges and opportunities in the energy systems require a new smart, more adaptable grid infrastructure. Today, power grid operation is a complex task: Volatile power generation and multi-directional power flows from distributed, increasingly renewable sources and prosumers call for a smarter approach. With digital solutions that connect the physical and digital worlds we integrate intelligence across the energy value chain in systems and operations. We help connect grids, buildings, and industries enhancing efficiency and sustainability. We shape grids that are reliable and resilient, that integrate and manage renewables and that operate increasingly autonomous. These responsive grids support the sustainable energy transition, help provide affordable energy to society and our customers to stay competitive in an ever changing world. During Europe´s largest energy related trade show Enlit, which took place in Milan, Italy, Siemens presented its technological solutions to these challenges.
- Siemens announces projects to be supported in the Third Funding
- Up to US$ 30 million in funding to be awarded
- Siemens Integrity Initiative's
funding volume exceeds US$ 100 million
As part of the Siemens Integrity Initiative, which has a funding volume

funding in order to promote corruption-free markets.
- Latest funding round backed with US$30 million
- Siemens Integrity Initiative promotes projects seeking to prevent and combat corruption and fraud
The Siemens Integrity Initiative promotes projects around the world that seek to combat corruption and fraud, supporting educational and training programs as well as Collective Action, which is building alliances against corruption in a joint effort between business and institutions to establish clean markets and ensure fair competition. The selection process favors projects that have a direct impact on the private sector and strengthen compliance standards and legal systems.
- Turbo set to increase the capacity of the Az Zour South 3 power plant by around 263 megawatts
- Gas turbine power plant will be transformed into an efficient combined cycle power plant
Siemens has received an order to deliver an industrial steam turbine package to expand the Az Zour South 3 open cycle gas turbine power plant to a combined cycle power plant. The plant is located in Kuwait and is operated by the Ministry of Electricity & Water (MEW). Siemens' customer is the Chinese EPC contractor SEPCOIII. The expansion will increase the total installed capacity of the plant by 263 megawatts (MW) without using any additional gas. The combined cycle power plant is expected to go into operation in mid-2019.
- 1,900 apprentices begin professional careers with Siemens
- Training increasingly focused on digitalization
- Fifth year of international Europeans@Siemens initiative
- Refugees begin training after completing preparatory classes
Around 1,900 young people will be starting their professional careers at the beginning of the new training year. Around 20 percent of them will prepare for careers in business administration, and 80 percent will complete apprenticeships or work-study programs in technical fields and IT. Roughly one-third of the training positions are in the work-study education programs. Participants in these programs earn a bachelor’s degree (Bachelor of Engineering, Science or Arts) as well as the graduation of the German Chamber of Industry and Commerce (IHK) degree. In 2016, Siemens will also be celebrating a special anniversary of its vocational training program: The first year of training began 125 years ago. Since the first “trainee corner” was established in 1891, Siemens has developed over 160,000 young men and women in technical and business professions.
Siemens plans to significantly boost its commitment to Africa by making an additional investment of roughly €200 million in the next two years to expand its business and its sales structures on the continent. “Africa offers Siemens vast opportunities for growth. As a green infrastructure pioneer, we’re a natural partner for mastering the continent’s major challenges. Renewable energies, in particular, have a huge potential in Africa,” said Siemens President and CEO Peter Löscher at celebrations marking Siemens’ 150th anniversary in South Africa.
