Siemens offers a wide range of solutions and services in Denmark, where its Energy, Healthcare, Industry, and Infrastructure & Cities Sectors occupy leading positions. In fiscal 2013, Siemens in Denmark scored major successes in all four Sectors:
In fiscal 2013, Siemens inaugurated the Anholt offshore wind farm, the third largest wind farm in the world, with the Danish Queen, Prime Minister, and Minister of Energy attending. The construction was completed on time and on budget, and the turbines will deliver green energy to 400,000 Danish households.
Energinet.dk, a Danish national transmission system operator for electricity and natural gas, bought two synchronous condensers to stabilize the Danish electrical grid in a market with a large percentage of renewable energy. The order amounted to EUR 31 million.
Siemens’ Energy Sector also delivered a steam turbine, including generator, heat exchanger, and auxiliaries for Amager Resource Center, a company that administers the waste of four Danish municipalities, converting it into energy. Siemens also delivered the overall control and monitoring system for the company’s combined heat and power plant (CHP) as well as the overall electrical system (transformers, breakers, etc). The order amounted to EUR 28 million.
Orders totaling EUR 5.6 million for computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance (MR), and positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) equipment were fulfilled and delivered to Sealand Region, one of the five Danish regional administrative units, which covers most of the island of Sealand. The Sector also installed equipment worth EUR 2.5 million (two CT scanners and two PET/CT scanners) at the Herlev Hospital, close to Copenhagen. The hospital, which has 28 floors, is Denmark's tallest building, and the world’s sixth tallest hospital.
The Industry Sector generated a 45 percent growth in business, thanks to orders from the wind market, including:
In fiscal 2013, Siemens’ Industry Sector doubled the orders received from Crisplant, part of the BEUMER Group, a leading provider of automated sortation technology, control systems, and integration services for EUR 2 million. The solutions, designed for passenger baggage handling systems, are for airports around the world. Siemens delivers the programmable logic controllers (PLC) components and input/output (I/O) systems for controlling these. Siemens continues to be a reliable partner for Grundfos, the world's largest pump manufacturer, based in Denmark. It grew the business with the company by 11 percent to almost EUR 20 million in fiscal 2013.
Siemens was commissioned by Danish railway infrastructure operator Banedanmark to equip 840 rail vehicles with its Global System for Mobile Communication Railways (GSM-R) technology. The order is worth around EUR 20 million. Siemens’ Building Technologies Division received the contract for energy optimization of the Guldborgsund municipality’s public buildings. Guldborgsund is expected to be able to reduce its energy expenses by as much as 23 percent as a result. The order covers 225,000 square meters and is valued at EUR 20 million.
