Boss: New plant puts Lincoln at centre of engineering innovation

Siemens' director of service in Lincoln has paid tribute to all those who have worked towards the opening of the firm's new turbine service centre:

From the start our vision has been to create a world-class facility and environment of service excellence to meet our customer service needs. The focus of the centre is on continuous improvement and we are proud to have developed a facility that offers a modern working environment for our customers and employees. This together with the great work we are doing with the University at the Engineering Hub really helps put Siemens and Lincoln at the centre of engineering innovation in the UK.

New turbine service centre houses latest technology

Siemens has officially opened its new gas turbine service centre at Teal Park in Lincoln. Feilden House is a purpose built facility which the firm describes as world class. 500 staff moved from offices elsewhere in the city at the end of last year and the workshop area transferred at Easter.

Bosses say the 135,000 square foot facility has been built to the highest possible specification with capacity for further expansion. There are already 600 employees there but the firm hopes to increase the number of workers as it attracts more business.

The building is also the first in Lincolnshire to be given a BREAM "excellence" rating for its environmental standards thanks to special roof panels and energy efficient lighting as well as electric car and cycle charging points.
