Siemens opens new SA service centre

South Australian Treasurer Tom Koutsantonis has officially opened Siemens’ new $5 million facility at Tonsley in southern Adelaide.

Covering an area of 2300sqm, the facility is fully serviced by overhead gantry cranes and includes an abrasive blasting facility and wash bay.

The main bay of the service centre has two 45 tonne overhead cranes that can be coupled for a maximum of 90 tonne capacity – capable of lifting a fully laden space shuttle.

A second machining bay is serviced by two 10 tonne cranes. The machining bay includes CNC machining, gearbox overhauls, welding bay, and white metal bearing manufacture.

The major plant includes lathes, horizontal and vertical borers, a five-axis milling machine, abrasive blasting facility, wash bay and low-speed balance machine.

The Treasurer said the investment in Tonsley by the global technology giant demonstrated the growing confidence in the future for South Australia. 

“Tonsley represents the heart of a new industrial future for South Australia, with a net economic benefit to the state of $492 million.

“It will attract investment to build new capabilities into the South Australian economy, create an environment enabling businesses and educational institutions to collaborate and support innovation and future manufacturing,” Mr Koutsantonis said.
