Global engineering and technology company Siemens has turned to Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles to renew its fleet.
The electronics giant has been operating in the UK for 170 years and currently employs more than 13,000 people at sites all around the UK. It's one of the world's largest producers of energy efficient technologies and a global leader in the construction and maintenance of wind turbines for power generation.
The new contract sees 20 T6 Transporters join Siemens, as part of the wind turbine engineering fleet. These vehicles are responsible for support on the installation, servicing and maintenance of Siemens' onshore wind turbine portfolio.
Although the Transporter already boasts excellent load carrying capacity, each of the Siemens vehicles has been outfitted with bespoke cargo solutions to carry the equipment and parts required to keep the wind turbines going. The generous payload capability of the Transporter ensures that the vans can carry all that the engineers will need.
As important to the ability to carry the cargo is the capability of getting it to the locations. Wind turbines are often built in locations not typically accessible by road and require a vehicle that can manage in trickier environments. To this end, all of the Transporters specified by Siemens will be equipped with Volkswagen's 4MOTION four-wheel drive system. This ensures that Siemens' engineers will never be defeated by rough terrain.
