Siemens offers a wide range of solutions and services in Bulgaria, where its Energy, Healthcare, Industry, and Infrastructure & Cities Sectors occupy leading positions. In fiscal 2013, Siemens in Bulgaria scored major successes in all four Sectors:
Siemens, in a partnership with Steinmuller Engineering Ltd, won a contract to modernize four lignite coal-fired boilers at the ContourGlobal Maritsa East 3 power plant, one of four power plants in Bulgaria's south-central energy complex.
Siemens won a public tender for eight digital mammography systems – the largest award ever announced in the country for this type of equipment. The mammography systems, Mammomat Inspiration, have been installed in two universities and six large regional hospitals. They will be used for screening and diagnostics of one of the most common cancer diseases among women.
The operational safety of the country’s largest water treatment plant, Bistritsa, which delivers drinking water for approximately 1.5 million citizens in the capital of Sofia, has been upgraded through fully automated monitoring and control and redundant hardware.
The solution provided by Siemens minimizes risk of errors thanks to centralized process monitoring and control and early warning of process changes. It also simplifies remote operation management through a remote control system, and enables easy expansion of the facility through the openness and scalability of the automation system.
Siemens’ Building Technologies Division delivered the DESIGO building management system for three big projects in Sofia: Bulgaria Mall and the adjacent office building, a plant for production of Centillion medical electronics, and the new modern hospital City Clinic. The biggest data center of the company Evolink was equipped with the latest technology for fire safety and security systems, integrated in the Siemens MM8000 danger management station.
The Smart Grid Division reconstructed and modernized three stationary rectifier substations for Stolichen Elektrotransport EAD, the company that operates the power network for public transportation in the capital of Sofia.
The Low and Medium Voltage Division renovated the main electrical infrastructure for Mini Maritza Iztok EAD, the country’s largest coal mining company.
Siemens’ activities in Bulgaria date back to 1878, when the company delivered the equipment for construction of the first telegraph line. In 2013 Siemens Bulgaria celebrated its 135th anniversary in the country. Throughout its history there, the company has been closely connected with technical innovations in Bulgaria.
