Siemens Power Generation Services are continuing to bring the service closer to their customers in Thailand with the establishment of a new Service Center. Planned to be fully operated early next year, the new Siemens service center located in Rayong province is now close to completion. The 1200 square meter facility will serve as a combined Repair Center and Warehouse providing Siemens gas turbine-, compressor-, and industrial steam turbine customers with full support for the maintenance activities and include inventory of tooling, instrumentation and spare parts to execute the maintenance activities for the great number of SGT-800s in Thailand.

Mr. Thorbjoern Fors, CEO of Siemens Power Generation Service, Distributed Generation and O&G, visited the construction site; "There are currently 72 units of the SGT-800 gas turbine in Thailand, which is one of the largest SGT-800 fleets in the world. To serve the great number of SGT-800s in Thailand we selected Rayong as our service center to show our commitment to our customers."
