Siemens established its first office in Kenya in 1977 and continues to play an active role in the country. With its local Branch Office based in Nairobi, Siemens holds leading positions in its Industry, Energy and Healthcare.
As a leading-edge technology supplier with extensive experience in East Africa, Siemens is ideally positioned to play a major role in Kenya’s growth. The team in Kenya works closely with Siemens South Africa and the company's extended Africa network to meet the requirements of customers across all sectors of Kenyan industry.
The Siemens Industry Sector recently installed its innovative water filtration system, SkyHydrant, in the remote Kenyan villages of Obambo and Kadenge. By incorporating a simple and robust membrane filter system, the SkyHydrant, into a community kiosk; it is now possible to provide a tangible and sustainable means of water purification that gives communities in remote areas a supply of clean water.
In the area of energy, Siemens will be installing substations and transmission lines in a large-scale energy recovery project as part of the completed Olkaria 3 Power Plant.
A large number of people on the Kenyan shore of Lake Victoria have recently been connected to the power grid. The company developed a project with energy-saving lamps, which can be recharged at small solar “filling stations”, to provide much needed light to remote areas. The “Energy for All” project initiated by OSRAM, a Siemens company, and the Global Nature Fund, aims to provide neighboring communities of the lake with clean and safe light at low cost.
Siemens Healthcare has recently supplied medical equipment to the first ever dedicated African Cancer Care Centre in Kenya to serve the communities in East and Central Africa. The computed tomography imaging technology will help in the early detection and cancer treatment of patients in the region. Through the REACH (Resources Embracing Africa with Care and Hope) program, Siemens is also playing an active role in the fight against HIV/AIDS in Kenya. Siemens Healthcare Diagnostics is working with funding agencies and local partners to expand access to cost-effective healthcare in Africa. With the REACH program, Siemens is able to deliver HIV viral infectious disease management in settings that are too inhospitable for some other systems. From total solutions to on-site and off-site operator training, Siemens offers the right technology and the right pricing for Africa at this critical moment.
Siemens’ established presence and extensive experience in Kenya is based on a clear focus of using local expertise in the execution of projects. This has allowed the company to acquire important projects not only in the country but also beyond the borders of the local market. For example, our involvement with rural electrification projects in Rwanda is being handled out of our Kenya office, too.
Siemens is committed to delivering integrated solutions to improve the efficiency and productivity of its customers in Kenya and East Africa and help ensure a sustainable future for the people of the region.
