Siemens opens wind power training center in Bremen

Bremen, Germany, August 20, 2009 — Siemens has officially opened a new wind power training center in the city of Bremen. The technology company now offers a qualification program for customer personnel and service technicians from around the globe. The training center is an important part of the European service headquarters for wind power in Bremen and, together with three other training facilities in Europe and the U.S., meets Siemens global training needs for wind power services.

“We see service as much more than a regular look into the nacelle. And precisely because we attach such importance to service, we have decided to set up a training center for our service team here in Bremen,” said Rene Umlauft, CEO of the Renewable Energy Division of Siemens Energy. “Here we also want to give our customers the opportunity to have their personnel trained in line with the latest developments.”

The new Siemens training center with a surface area of more than 600 square meters offers a wide variety of qualification and training options covering all aspects relaring to the technology and operational reliability — a contribution toward the reliable, efficient operation of wind turbines over the long term. The central feature of the new training center is the original-nacelle of a Siemens 2.3-MW wind turbine. A simulator, ladder structures, electrical and hydraulic modules, and a maintenance crane make training possible under virtually realistic conditions.
