Siemens offers a wide range of solutions and services in India, where its Energy, Healthcare, Industry and Infrastructure & Cities Sectors occupy leading positions. In fiscal 2013, Siemens in India scored major successes in all four Sectors:
The Energy Sector is currently installing a state-of-the-art, fourth-generation distributed control system for the renovation and modernization of the Korba Stage-II plant belonging to the National Thermal Power Corporation, India’s largest state-owned electric utilities company. The Sector was awarded a contract to supply Bangladesh Steels Re-Rolling Mills Ltd. with the first private-sector-funded gas-insulated switchgear substation project in Bangladesh. It also established a Global Engineering Center in Coimbatore in order to strengthen its capability to provide global customers with high-quality, end-to-end solutions spanning the fields of infrastructure systems, civil engineering, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, 3D modeling and telecommunications.
The Healthcare Sector provided Indraprastha Apollo Hospital in New Delhi with India’s first Biograph molecular magnetic resonance (mMR) system. The Sector supplied NM Medical, India’s pioneering diagnostic imaging and preventive healthcare provider, with the country’s first MAGNETOM Spectra 3T MRI scanner for installation in the new diagnostic center at Sancheti Hospital in Pune. It also provided PSG Hospitals in Coimbatore with Asia’s first SOMATOM Definition Edge computed tomography (CT) scanner.
The Metals Technologies unit at Siemens India received an order from state-owned Rashtriya Ispat Nigam Ltd.(RINL) to thoroughly modernize blast furnace No. 2 at its Visakhapatnam Steel Plant. The Steel Authority of India Ltd. (SAIL), India’s largest steel producer, signed a three-year memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the Sector’s SITRAIN unit to provide training for its technical staff. The Sector also unveiled the Siemens Productivity Tour, a nationwide, multi-city mobile road show aimed at providing small and medium manufacturing enterprises across India with technologies that will enhance their productivity and efficiency.
Offering sustainable technologies for metropolitan areas and their infrastructures, the Infrastructure & Cities Sector secured two new contracts to construct 38 new sub-stations that will improve power distribution throughout Bangladesh. The Sector continued to support Bangladesh’s Rural Electrification Board in its efforts to provide reliable power supplies and improve economic development in western Bangladesh. In this connection, the Sector installed and upgraded existing power distribution facilities in the country. The Sector also won orders to supply rolling stock, electrification and a signaling system (including interface management of the rail sub-systems) for the Gurgaon Metro and Delhi Metro, thereby improving travel for over 30,000 passengers per hour.
The history of Siemens in India dates back to 1867, when Werner von Siemens personally supervised the laying of the first telegraph line between London and Calcutta. The first company office was founded in 1922. In 1957, Siemens was incorporated as a company under the Indian Companies Act. Today, Siemens India has a nationwide sales and service network, 23 manufacturing plants, eight centers of competence and 11 R&D centers. Siemens is also fulfilling its responsibilities as a good corporate citizen. Over the past year, Siemens India’s corporate citizenship team implemented Project Asha (‘asha’ means ‘hope’ in Hindi), an integrated, sustainable development initiative in Amle village, around 130 kilometers from Mumbai. Through Project Asha, Siemens aims, with its technology and support, to turn Amle village into a self-sustainable community within three years. Siemens is also helping provide primary healthcare to remote rural areas in the north and east of India. In cooperation with a non-government organization, Siemens Healthcare has equipped two mobile Sanjeevan healthcare clinics with medical technologies such as ultrasound, pathology, mammography, laboratory and electrocardiography systems and accessories.
