Innovative approaches in the sector of service for offshore wind power can make a vital contribution in the future to further reducing the costs for electricity generated by offshore wind farms. The first two special vessels for this service were christened this week in Rostock and Hamburg. These Service Operation Vessels (SOVs), the Esvagt Fraude and the Esvagt Faraday, which are unique in the world, will now begin their duty to revolutionize service for offshore wind turbine power plants.

Siemens has handed over the first four North Sea grid connections to its customer TenneT. The German-Dutch transmission grid operator has accepted the projects following successful completion of test runs by Siemens. The grid connections HelWin1 and HelWin2, BorWin2 and SylWin1 are therefore now in commercial operation. BorWin3, the fifth grid connection, which was contracted in spring 2014, is slated to go on-line in 2019. About five million households will be supplied with electricity generated from wind power via this five links. Thanks to the use of high-voltage direct-current (HVDC) transmission technology, the losses over those links are less than four percent.

Three natural gas-fired combined cycle power plants - each powered by eight Siemens H-Class gas turbines - and up to 600 wind turbines will boost Egypt's power generation capacity by more than 50 percent compared to the currently installed base. Beginning in 2017, they will add power to the grid in stages and will add an additional 16.4 gigawatts in total to Egypt's national grid. This will support the country's rapid economic development and meet its growing population's demand for power. The volume of €8 billion is the single biggest order for Siemens up to now. Egyptian President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi and German Vice Chancellor Sigmar Gabriel witnessed the signing ceremony in Berlin, Germany.

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.
