Siemens’ activities in Africa date back to 1857, only ten years after the company was established in Berlin, Germany, when Werner von Siemens participated in the first pan-oceanic telegraph cable installation between Europe and Africa. 152 years later, in 2009, Siemens expressed its commitment to another ambitious project connecting the continents of the world. The company is participating in the Desertec Industrial Initiative to provide sustainable power to Europe, the Middle East and North Africa.
We invite you to take a fascinating trip through time over 150 years of Siemens history in Africa. Please click on the images to read about the pictured event.
