Today, Rich Voorberg, President of North America for
Siemens Energy, joined President Biden and a group of U.S. manufacturers at the
United Performance Materials facility in Hamilton, OH to launch AM Forward
(Additive Manufacturing Forward). AM
Forward is an initiative designed to upgrade the capacity of America’s small and
medium-sized manufacturers using additive manufacturing or 3D printing.
- Time-tested design part of Siemens Energy’s
commitment to environment and safety
- Blue switchgear technology will help National
Grid meet zero-carbon emissions goal
In line with
shared commitments to decarbonize, National Grid and Siemens Energy are teaming
up to undertake a cutting-edge upgrade of a National Grid substation using
Siemens Energy designed fluorinated gas free “Blue circuit breakers” with clean
air insulation and vacuum switching technology.
- The Gibsonton, Florida facility demonstrates
Siemens Energy’s commitment to investing in U.S.-based manufacturing and
servicing of components for advanced energy projects, for worldwide export. The company has invested over $100 million
into the facility so far.
- Wage increases already implemented for existing
- Growth plan includes hiring roughly 100 employees
in the next two years
- Ownership of AAC will help secure the company’s
supply chain in the U.S., with essential turbine parts composed of advanced
materials and requiring advanced manufacturing processes
Energy announced today that it has acquired Advanced Airfoil Components (AAC),
a business operating as a joint venture of Siemens Energy and Chromalloy since
- Program will train next generation cyber defenders to protect critical infrastructure, filling critical

Siemens Energy, Inc. and a group of non-profit and academic organizations today announced a
consortium to establish a new industrial cybersecurity apprenticeship program to defend critical
infrastructure. The Cybersecurity & Industrial Infrastructure Security Apprenticeship Program
(CIISAp) was launched with five other founding members, including ICS Village, Inc., Regional
Economic Development for Eastern Idaho (REDI), MISI Academy, Capitol Technology University,
SANS Institute, Global Information Assurance Certification (GIAC) and Idaho State University (ISU),
who will collectively design and run an apprenticeship program that links rigorous academic classes
and educational training with real-world job rotations at leading industrial companies.
- Siemens Energy’s on-demand mobile resilience
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.
- Siemens Energy’s monitoring and detection industrial IOT security platform and ServiceNow’s cross-enterprise digital workflows can help energy companies mitigate cyberattacks at machine-speed
- Collaboration creates bridge between cybersecurity experts analyzing anomalies and malicious behavior and plant operators capable of acting on credible threat intelligence across industrial operating environments
- Combined software solution to help secure the energy transition to enable industry-wide adoption of digital, distributed and low-emissions technologies
Siemens Energy today announced a collaboration with ServiceNow to create a unified software service offering enabling energy companies to monitor, detect and respond to cyber threats targeting digitally connected critical infrastructure.
As one of the world’s leading energy technology companies, Siemens Energy welcomes the verification of its emission reduction targets by the renowned Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi). SBTi has verified on a scientific basis that Siemens Energy’s CO2 reduction targets comply with the Paris Agreement and thus contribute to limiting global warming to the extent stipulated in the agreement.

- Enables smooth integration of
large amounts of wind and solar power into the grid
Siemens Energy will supply a reactive
power compensation plant to the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power
(LADWP). The plant will enhance operations at Barren Ridge Switching Station,
LADWP’s renewable energy transmission facility in Kern County, California,
about 80 miles north of Los Angeles. The plant will be based on Siemens
Energy’s SVC PLUS technology that combines the benefits of static synchronous
compensation (STATCOM) and modular multilevel converter (MMC) technology. The
fast response of the STATCOM stabilizes the transmission system when the amount
of power generated by solar, wind or hydro generation changes. The MMC
technology allows the implementation of this complex technology in a very small
footprint compared to traditional solutions. The new ±200 megavolt ampere
(MVAr) SVC PLUS will provide the necessary voltage support needed in the area, where LADWP has significantly
increased renewable energy generation.
- Project to advance industry vision
of cost-efficient and CO
2-free power generation using hydrogen in
- One of four Siemens Energy
projects funded by the U.S. Department of Energy to further decarbonization of
the U.S. power generation sector
Siemens Energy announced today that it has
teamed up with Intermountain Power Agency to perform a conceptual design study
on integrating a hydrogen energy storage system into an advanced class combined
cycle power plant. The project has been awarded a $200,000 grant from the U.S.
Department of Energy, one of four funding awards received by Siemens Energy in
late 2020 to advance hydrogen applications in the U.S. power generation sector.
