The world's first electrical car and passenger ferry powered by batteries has entered service in Norway. The ferry only uses 150 kilowatt hours (kWh) per route, which corresponds to three days use of electricity in a standard Norwegian household. Built in conjunction with shipbuilder Fjellstrand, Siemens developed the ferry's drive system and put up charging stations with lithium-ion batteries which are charged from renewable energy, namely hydro power. With the change to battery, ship owner Norled is reducing the cost of fuel by up to 60 percent.

Guinness World Records crowned the truck BelAZ-75710 as the world's largest two-axle dumper truck. One of these gigantic vehicles is able to transport more than 450 metric tons of material — that's equivalent to seven fully fueled and loaded Airbus A320-200 planes. The truck is driven by four 1,200 kW electric motors from Siemens. The system uses two 16-cylinder diesel engines, each with an output of around 1,700 kW. Together they provide the energy that the electric drive requires in order to propel the giant tires.

Siemens researchers have developed a new type of electric motor that, with a weight of just 50 kilograms, delivers a continuous output of about 260 kilowatts – five times more than comparable drive systems. The motor has been specially designed for use in aircraft. Thanks to its record-setting power-to-weight ratio, larger aircraft with takeoff weights of up to two tons will now be able to use electric drives for the first time. To implement the world-record motor, Siemens' experts scrutinized all the components of previous motors and optimized them up to their technical limits.

Data centers are the beating heart of an ever more intensely networked world: cloud computing, smartphones, video streaming: vast quantities are data are shifted around the global internet every second. And more and more data is being stored. And as the volume of data increases, so too do the demands on the associated security and on the infrastructure. Computer centers, otherwise known as data centers, fulfill this task. The challenge this represents when building and operating such computer centers was highlighted by Siemens and T-Systems at a joint press conference in Frankfurt am Main.
