Egypt witnessed the inauguration of Siemens Energy’s service centre in the Suez Canal Economic Zone (SCZone) in Ain Sokhna and Smart Clinic in Shubra el Kheima.
Siemens CEO Joe Kaeser and German ambassador to Egypt Cyrill Nunn opened two projects in Shubra el Kheima and Ain Sokhna.
The service centre, the first of its kind in the region, includes a repair centre, an equipment centre, and a spare parts warehouse, according to a statement on Thursday.
The centre also has the Egyptian German Technical Academy (EGT Academy), representing a strategic alliance between Siemens and the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ).
The Smart Clinic is a collaboration between Siemens, Siemens Energy, Siemens Healthineers and the German non-profit Global Innovation Gathering.
The group donated equipment to the Egypt-based non-governmental organization Masr Bela Marad (Egypt Without Disease), which will run it.
