Siemens opens new service building at its transformer manufacturing plant in Nuremberg
Erlangen, Germany, 2011-Oct-07
In early October, Siemens Energy opened a new building for the servicing of high-rating transformers on the site of its transformer manufacturing plant in Nuremberg. With the new building, which represents an investment of 14 million euros, the manufacturing plant will strengthen its leading position in transformer engineering. The building, which is 25 meters high and has a floor space of 2500 square meters, will be the Siemens service center for Transformer Lifecycle Management (TLM) with a focus on Europe. Within the framework of TLM, aging power transformers of all ratings and makes will be repaired and overhauled ready for further periods of service. This will provide transformer operators with a cost-effective, technically attractive alternative for transformer lifecycle extension.
