Wind Power Service Solutions
Siemens Wind Power Services is a reliable partner for all services throughout your wind turbines’ entire lifetime. Having put our passion for wind energy into practice for more than 30 years, we are able to revolutionize expectations. With technological innovations, long-term agreements, and a zero-harm culture, we meet both our partners' and our employees' needs and have proven ourselves the undisputed leader in the offshore wind power industry. Everything we do aims for a single goal: to provide an unparalleled level of quality and sustainability.
The global wind power industry is growing exponentially. From 17.4 GW in 2000, 432.9 GW in 2015, to a projected 1,479.8 GW in 2030 – this translates to a large number of wind turbines. Keeping all these turbines running calls for reliable services. But as the wind industry matures and diversifies, one-size-fits-all service contracts are no longer suitable. Smarter and more proactive services are needed, as well as products that optimize your wind plants for energy output throughout your projects’ entire lifetime.
To meet diverse and changing customers’ needs we have created a modularized service portfolio.
In four key pillars that are shaped by your needs – reliability, reassurance, optimization, and knowledge – you have the flexibility to customize your service package from a range of intelligent and innovative service solutions.
Whatever your project situation, your choice of custom-built service packages will maximize your return on investment.
A total of more than 3,500 employees with around 50 different nationalities from across the globe – that is the very heart of Siemens Wind Power Services. Innovation, partnerships with customers, safety, and excellence define our corporate philosophy. If setting new trends in servicing wind turbines and a passion for technology are just as important to you as they are to us, then take the next step and become part of our service team.
Are you interested in a personalized plan that will help you hone your skills? So are we. At Siemens, we use specific competence profiles to define what is expected from each individual employee at specific times as well as to determine which training measures will make it possible to reach individual goals most effectively. Every year, we provide training courses for more than 100,000 employees. Whether you are a manager or a service technician, our priority is to provide everyone with the opportunity to continuously improve their skills.
Special talent development programs for young technicians, graduates, and young professionals ensure that even entry-level employees will be able to realize their potential from the very start.
Open and direct communication is simply part of who we are. At Siemens, you are always welcome to discuss your ideas and thoughts with your coworkers, supervisors, and your personal mentor. Moreover, we conduct employee surveys on a regular basis to ensure that we can make Siemens the best possible workplace for everyone. In fact, making our employees and their thoughts a vital part of the company’s evolution is one of the accomplishments we are most proud of.
At Siemens, safety is the most important aspect of our business. This is why, together with other stakeholders, we make use of our decades of experience in the wind power industry to establish high safety standards. Training courses and innovative technologies enable safety in everyday service life, and our zero-harm campaign helps to enforce a safety culture at all levels.
The goal of Siemens is to establish a zero-harm culture throughout the entire company. Accordingly, every single person who works for or with us should be optimally protected against work accidents, harm, and illness due to work. Our commitment in this area is not limited to merely complying with legal regulations. It goes beyond the safety training courses offered to our service technicians on a regular basis; it also centers on ensuring that all stakeholders are looking out for each other at all times.
Lee Callaghan, head of operations at ScottishPower: “The Siemens ‘Zero Harm’ road show event was a fantastic example of an organization taking a major safety campaign extremely seriously. The fact that customers were invited to attend the road shows along with a wide cross section of Siemens employees will help to ensure that the clear alignment required between Siemens and their customers to ensure the success of the ongoing ‘Zero Harm’ campaign will be achieved.”
Nothing is more important to us than our employees’ health and safety – and even competition takes a backseat. This is why Siemens works together with numerous partners in the wind energy business to develop industry-wide safety standards at GWO (Global Wind Organisation). Naturally, cooperation with national authorities and institutions at all levels is just as important. Together with emergency and rescue services, we conduct safety exercises on a regular basis in order to test our own abilities and processes.
In 2012, we simulated a worst-case scenario off the British coast. More than 500 people trained under real-life conditions at London Array – the world’s largest offshore wind farm – so that they would be prepared for the worst should it ever come to that.
When it comes to safety, one of the most demanding environments is that of offshore wind turbines. After all, wind farms are constantly being built at ever-greater distances from the coast, where the weather conditions are rough and escape routes and rescue missions become challenging. Siemens technicians are known for their unparalleled work at such facilities, and our goal is to make sure they can perform it as safely as possible.
Thanks to our remote diagnostics, we can analyze Siemens wind turbines remotely, reducing our technicians’ offshore assignments to a minimum.
We also rely on a variety of logistical concepts and vessels to provide maximum protection for our employees whenever they are deployed offshore. For example, we use helicopters and special ships to safely transport and house technicians, while self-stabilizing gangways make it easier to move between ships and wind turbines.
