Siemens has begun construction of the Siemens Campus Erlangen, a new urban district in the southern part of Erlangen, Germany. Construction will take place in two phases. Phase one, consisting of eight office buildings, three multi-story parking garages, and a cafeteria, will be ready for occupation by 2020. Phase two will feature a 230-ft. (70-m) skyscraper. Scheduled for completion in 2030, the entire campus will include service operations, office buildings, a hotel, and restaurants.
According to Siemens, the campus will be an international research and development center, bringing together a wide range of the company’s research and development units and enable a direct, intensive exchange among experts from different business fields.
“The campus will break down rigid structures in the company and provide scope for a new, open type of collaboration for the development of innovations,” said Siegfried Russwurm, member of Siemens Managing Board.
The Siemens product portfolio ranges from compressors, turbines, and generators to virtual power plants, intelligent grid management, and storage solutions. The Siemens gas compression portfolio includes standardized and tailor made solutions for onshore upstream production, pipelines, air separation, metallurgy, chemicals and petrochemicals, sulfur or waste water treatment, and more.
