Leading global engineering and technology services company Siemens has added 20 Volkswagen Transporters to its growing wind turbine engineering support team.
The Transporters, which are fitted with Volkswagen’s 4motion four-wheel drive system, will join the wind turbine engineering fleet, which is responsible for the installation, servicing and maintenance of the company’s wind turbine portfolio.
Each Transporter has been equipped with bespoke racking to carry the equipment and spare parts essential for the commissioning and up-keep of the turbines.
Paul Tate, commodity manager at Siemens, said: “The Transporter offers a van that can not only match our very strict environmental standards, but also delivers the performance and payload capabilities that we require to operate our business effectively and efficiently.
“Working in locations that are often not accessible by road, our engineers require a van that can be relied on day-in-day-out to get them and their equipment to site without any issues.
"Volkswagen’s 4motion four-wheel drive system will work well on the kind of terrain that our engineering teams experience on a daily basis.”
