Siemens offers a wide range of solutions and services in Canada, where its Energy, Healthcare, Industry and Infrastructure & Cities Sectors occupy leading positions. In fiscal 2013, Siemens Canada scored major successes in all four Sectors:
In addition to the milestone order for the South Kent Wind project, Siemens Canada was also awarded a second contract by Samsung Renewables and Pattern Energy to supply, deliver and commission 67 SWT-2.3-101 wind turbines for the 150-MW Grand Renewable Energy Park project. The deal includes a three-year service and maintenance agreement. In 2013, Siemens Canada also established its first service and distribution center in Chatham, Ontario, in order provide a better service to Canadian wind customers.
In 2013, Siemens Canada established its first Canadian customer training center for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in partnership with the Joint Department of Medical Imaging at the University of Toronto. The center is located in the Medical Imaging Department of Toronto General Hospital and offers Canadian customers the opportunity to train more frequently on MRI scanners. With the largest installed base in Canada – approximately 170 MRI scanners across the country – and five dedicated MRI application specialists in Canada, Siemens is well positioned to open a center of this kind. Training programs will cover imaging and workflow potentials based on special sequences and workflow tools developed by Siemens for its MRI equipment.
Siemens’ solution partner Aspin-Kemp & Associates (AKA) worked with Siemens Canada to produce an Advanced Generator Protection (AGP) system for Transocean, the world’s largest offshore drilling contractor. Siemens’ Industry Sector also supplied AKA with drives, automation hardware, control components and power distribution equipment worth a total of CAD 5.8 million.
Offering sustainable technologies for metropolitan areas and their infrastructures, Siemens was awarded an order by the city of Calgary to provide Calgary Transit with 60 new Siemens S200 High-Floor Light Rail Vehicles. In addition to expanding the city’s fleet, the new trains will replace some of the 80 Siemens U2 vehicles provided to the city in the 1980s in preparation for the Winter Olympic Games. This latest order continues the strong customer relationship between Siemens and Calgary Transit.
Siemens Canada has been present in Canada for more than 100 years and was involved in several important Canadian firsts, including one of the first modern light rail systems in North America - (Edmonton, 1975), the design and installation of the world’s first retractable roof at Toronto’s Rogers Centre (formerly SkyDome) in 1989 and the first filmless hospital in Montreal in 1998. Siemens also played a role in some of Canada’s most iconic projects, including lighting areas of Expo’67 (Montreal) and the illumination of both the CN Tower (1994) and Niagara Falls (2007).
As Siemens Canada embarks on its second century, it continues to evolve and aims to deliver solutions for tackling the issues that will define Canada in the twenty-first century and beyond: climate change, urbanization, demographic change and globalization.
