Siemens launches Integrated Drive Systems initiative

Siemens Drive Technologies has kicked off its Integrated Drive Systems initiative to highlight the energy efficiency benefits of its custom engineered product and service offerings.

ATLANTA, GA, Nov. 13, 2012 -- Siemens Drive Technologies has kicked off its Integrated Drive Systems initiative to highlight the energy efficiency benefits of its comprehensive and custom engineered product and service offerings, including gearboxes, couplings, motors and drives through a single source. The program offers end users, EPCs, and OEMs the ability to reduce operational costs and improve engineering effectiveness.

Siemens plans to focus its integrated drive systems program on vertical markets for oil and gas and mining and cement industries. Additionally, Siemens will support integrated drive systems in other markets, such as metals, power generation, water and wastewater, pulp and paper and general manufacturing.

Doug Keith, President of Siemens Drive Technologies Division, highlighted several benefits of integrated drive systems. “Our integrated drive systems help to simplify the vendor process to maximize existing design specifications, yet ensure that projects are engineered without a waste of dollars, time and resources. Additionally, we are able to increase the speed and implementation of project development and commissioning, enhance design efficiencies and ensure the best, and most appropriate, components throughout the system,” says Keith.

Siemens will support its Integrated Drive Systems initiative with a global team of trained and certified industry experts who handle consultation and proposals, delivery, installation, maintenance and service. The company will incorporate PM@Siemens within the offering, an extensive global training and certification program with methodology based on the essential success factors for project management. Additionally, the company can fully support customized configurations for integrated drive systems, and with its localized manufacturing and service footprint, can quickly service the needs of its customers.

Siemens Drives Technologies Division has four primary U.S. manufacturing facilities, including Elgin, Ill., for gearboxes and couplings, Norwood, Ohio for motors, New Kensington, Pa., for medium voltage drives, Alpharetta, Ga., for low voltage and traction drives, as well as Houston, Texas for sales support.
