Siemens Energy expands Innovation Center-Orlando, positioning its U.S. hub as a world leader in developing transformational energy technologies

The company has spent over $30 million over the past four years in building its research & development operations in Florida.  This new $2 million investment in additional space for Innovation Center—Orlando and $5 million in CAPX for state-of-the-art equipment will enhance the facility’s machine shop and technical application area, including its additive manufacturing capabilities and use of robotics to inspect and repair components for equipment like turbines capable of running on hydrogen.  The investment will also expand the Center’s space dedicated to co-creation and include a TED Talk theater.  The growth of the Center will allow for more strategic partnerships with small business, universities, and new ventures as resources to support innovation are consolidated in one location.
Rich Voorberg, president, North America for Siemens Energy said “Innovation Center—Orlando represents a new model for driving transformational innovation across the energy industry.  When it comes to the energy transition, we know that time is of the essence, but also that we can’t do it alone. What the Center provides is the space and the mentality for collaboration to thrive. With an ability to operate like a start-up and shift priorities quickly the Innovation Center enables us to reduce the time it takes to test new concepts from six months to six weeks.”

Siemens Energy has plans to open Innovation Centers around the world, with additional locations in Berlin, Abu Dhabi, and Shenzhen.  Each Center will operate on a partnership model with both academic and industry partners, and the work of each center will complement the others to help Siemens Energy reach its goals to foster low or zero-emission power generation, transport and store electricity, and reduce the carbon footprint and energy consumption in industrial processes.  

Siemens Energy is one of the world’s leading energy technology companies. The company works with its customers and partners on energy systems for the future, thus supporting the transition to a more sustainable world. With its portfolio of products, solutions and services, Siemens Energy covers almost the entire energy value chain – from power generation and transmission to storage.

More than 50 percent of the portfolio has already been decarbonized. A majority stake in the listed company Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy (SGRE) makes Siemens Energy a global market leader for renewable energies. An estimated one-sixth of the electricity generated worldwide is based on technologies from Siemens Energy.
