Technology giant company, Siemens Ghana, has engaged its customers in a workshop as part of its annual customer workshop engagement activities.
Held under the theme ‘Technology as a Catalyst for Business and Economic Development’, the engagement presented an opportunity to display Siemens’ technology across the Energy, Oil and Gas, Transportation, Power generation and transmission spectrum to customers and potential customers.
The Customer Day also created a platform for engaging in conversations on some pertinent issues around Technology and Economic Development.
In his remarks, Mr. Edmund Acheampong, the Country Director of Siemens Ghana, noted that Siemens has cutting-edge technology and solutions for the world, Africa and for Ghana.
He said Siemens Ghana is an integral part of the corporate community in the country, and is playing a major role in contributing toward job creation and development skills in the country.
“Over the past three years, we have had our establishment in Ghana and the country has experienced the ingenuity of Siemens Solutions across the sectors of the Ghanaian economy. This includes the oil and gas sector, transportation, manufacturing and the energy sector,” he added.
As an avid supporter of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM), Siemens has collaborated and partnered with various institutions of higher learning to empower young and upcoming engineers, as well as built the capacity of these institutions to deliver world-class education to its workers.
“We have a heart to empower the citizens of communities that we do business in. Siemen’s contribution to the Ghanaian economy goes beyond our business investments,” noted Mr. Acheampong.
Recalling some of the projects the company has undertaken to improve the lives of Ghanaians over the past three years of its existence, the Country Director revealed that Siemens Ghana has provided an industrial automation for the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, KNUST, which is being used to train the students.
He said: “In future, we expect that it will be used to also provide training to industry, their employees, and also provide Siemens’ certification for them.”
Also, last month the company handed over a refurbished ICT laboratory including 45 new computers to the Sekondi college in Takoradi. This equipment was presented to the school to afford students practical experience, and also equip them in getting industry to bridge the gap between practicals and academia.
Touching on more activities undertaken by the company, Mr. Acheampong stated that: “In offering assistance and hope to persons in challenging backgrounds, and supporting institutions that lack essential resources needed for skills development and learning, Simmons donated food, clothing and personal items of products to children at the Village of Hope Ophanage in Gomoa Fetteh”.
Other topics discussed at the customers’ engagement workshop included Gas turbines for heat recycle solutions; hybrid power & decentralised solutions; Steam turbines for biomass & steam tailing applications; the SGT-750, Services on non-Siemens steam turbines and generators; as well as Services for distributed generation and oil & gas applications.
The engagements also offered customers opportunities to network and interact with Siemens officials.
