- Siemens Energy’s on-demand mobile resistance transformer allows equipment to be leased out and deployed rapidly to maximize grid resilience while mitigating the impacts of long-term outages or for emergency response from a failed transformer.
- Rapid response generator step-up (GSU) transformers
are a temporary solution that are designed to reestablish power with three
compact and versatile single-phase units in case of a transformer failure. Transport
and installation is capable of being completed within weeks, instead of a customer
waiting 9 to 12 months for a replacement GSU transformer to be manufactured and
- Solution offers multi-voltage flexibility to be
installed as a plug-and-play option to fit almost any generation and
transmission voltage arrangement.
Siemens Energy announced today the successful delivery and
installation of three single phase Pretact® GSU Sensformer™ transformers that were
deployed to provide a solution in response to a failed conventional transformer
at a combined cycle power plant.
- Siemens Energy’s well
established STATCOM technology (SVC PLUS®) has a proven track record in
challenging environments like that posed by California’s climate with high
seismicity and wind speed.
- Dynamic reactive power support
for substations allows for fast responding voltage support in case of system events
and transmission outages.
Siemens Energy announced today that it
will provide four static synchronous compensator (STATCOM) installations for LS
Power Grid California, LLC (LS Power) substation projects in California. A
STATCOM is a quick-reacting system capable of providing or absorbing reactive power
to regulate the voltage at the point of connection to a power grid. This voltage regulation will be key to
ensuring the reliability of the power grid as renewable energy sources are brought
online, enabling further decarbonization of California’s energy mix.
- The pilot installation will convert waste
heat from a gas turbine into emissions-free power using supercritical carbon
- Enough electricity will be produced to power
10,000+ homes, resulting in an estimated reduction in 44,000 tons per year in
greenhouse gas emissions
has signed an agreement with Canada-based TC Energy Corporation (TC Energy) to
commission a novel waste heat-to-power pilot installation in Alberta. The
facility will capture waste
heat from a gas-fired turbine operating at a pipeline compression station and
convert it into emissions-free power. The electricity produced will be put back
into the grid– resulting
in estimated greenhouse gas reductions of 44,000 tons per year, equivalent to
taking more than 9,000 vehicles off the road.
- Contract for engineering,
procurement and construction work at Marsh Landing facility (Antioch, CA)
allow the plant to quickly restart and facilitate grid re-energization in the
event of an outage
- Project will provide critical reliability service to the
Bay Area and improve grid stability
Siemens Energy announced today that it
will design, build and commission a black-start system at Clearway’s Marsh
Landing Generating Station near Antioch, California (“Marsh Landing”). Black-start capabilities will allow the
station to restart the flow of electricity to the facility’s auxiliary systems
without the support of an external power supply in the case of an outage or
blackout situation. Siemens Energy will
engineer and build a customized battery energy storage system (“BESS”) that can
support up to three attempts to restart a unit at Marsh Landing within one
- Siemens Energy employees nominated local charitable organizations to have the opportunity to receive donations of up to $10k each
- 122 organizations across 20
states were selected to receive a donation
On the occasion of the Martin Luther King
holiday, the only federal holiday designated as a day of service, Siemens
Energy is pleased to announce the winning charitable organizations of the
company’s recently launched Positive Energy campaign. “On this national day of
service, it’s important to recognize the value of serving in the places where
we live and work,” said Steve Conner, president of Siemens Energy, Inc. “These organizations demonstrate service to
their respective communities today and every day.”
- Project to help each entity reach bold carbon-reduction goals
- U.S. Department of Energy to fund year-long study
Siemens Energy, Duke Energy and Clemson University have teamed up to study the use of hydrogen for energy storage and as a low- or no-carbon fuel source to produce energy at Duke Energy’s combined heat and power plant located at Clemson University in South Carolina.
- Blue Clean Air Circuit Switcher eliminates Green House Gas (GHG) emissions, thus contributing positively to the decarbonization of energy
- Advanced current interrupting capability prolongs the lifespan of the technology over 5 times longer than conventional SF
6 circuit switchers, resulting in 40% lower lifecycle cost
- System is virtually maintenance free with higher reliability in extreme cold conditions
Siemens Energy and Traverse City Light and Power (TCL&P) have installed the first circuit switcher that utilizes clean dry air in place of traditional sulfur hexafluoride (SF
6) insulating gas.
- CFO Maria Ferraro takes over new additional position
- Clear commitment: 25% female leadership by 2025, 30% by 2030
Siemens Energy appointed Maria Ferraro (47), as the Chief Inclusion & Diversity Officer (CIDO) with immediate effect, in addition to her role as CFO of the energy technology company.
- MDR, powered by Eos.ii™, helps
secure the energy transition for small and medium-sized energy companies from
the increasing threat of cyberattacks
- The service’s Eos.ii technology platform and OT security operations center monitors and detects potential cyberthreats in real-time
Siemens Energy today announced a new
artificial intelligence (AI)-based industrial cybersecurity service,
Managed Detection and Response (MDR), powered by Eos.ii, to help small and
medium-sized energy companies defend critical infrastructure against
cyberattacks. MDR’s technology platform, Eos.ii, leverages AI and machine
learning methodologies to gather and model real-time energy asset intelligence.
This allows Siemens Energy’s cybersecurity experts to monitor, detect and
uncover attacks before they execute. Armed with actionable insights from MDR’s
technology platform, Siemens Energy’s cybersecurity experts implement precise
defense measures in the company’s state-of-the-art operational
technology-security operations center (OT-SOC) to defend power generation, oil
and gas, renewable energy, and transmission and distribution customers.
