Siemens recently announced its Vision 2020, which focuses on electrification, digitalization and automation. These three pillars are a perfect fit for the Middle East's current and future challenges.
The Middle East is one of a few places in the world where the full value-chain of electrification is laid out right on the doorstep. Siemens is helping its customers to automate and control the extraction, refining and transportation of fossil fuels. Siemens is providing highly efficient power generation from these fuels, followed by distribution of this electricity through smart networks to ultimately be used efficiently in buildings, by tram systems or in factories.
Siemens has been working in the Middle East for almost 160 years. Its presence in the region began in 1859 when the company's founder, Werner von Siemens, supervised the laying of 5,600km of telegraphic cables in the Red Sea, connecting Suez in Egypt with Karachi (now Pakistan). Today, the Siemens footprint stretches from Libya in the west to Pakistan in the east. Our work includes some of the region's most important infrastructure developments, for example the Habshan-Fujairah crude oil pipeline which is strategically crucial for the UAE, or the Children's cancer hospital in Egypt – the only Middle East centre of excellence for diagnosis and treatment of cancer in children.
Siemens has the technologies to sustainably support the social and economic development of Middle Eastern countries.
