Mississauga, ON — Siemens Canada Ltd. is bringing its Exiderdome, a two-storey-tall exhibit constructed from 55 containers that transform into an exposition of technological innovation, to Canada.

The Exiderdome will make its Canadian debut at the Global Petroleum Show in Calgary, AB, on June 10, 2008, and brings Siemens’ Totally Integrated Automation (TIA) and Totally Integrated Power (TIP) solutions to Canadian manufacturers and business owners.

The Exiderdome represents more than 130,000 products, services and systems of Siemens’ Industry Automation & Drive Technologies group and allows Canadians to experience the future of automation and control under one roof. TIA enables manufacturers to achieve increased productivity, flexibility and reduced operating costs, while with TIP, business owners and operators can decrease energy costs and improve efficiency for their commercial and industrial facilities.

In addition, Siemens will showcase its industrial services portfolio of plant maintenance and modernization programs which allow businesses to protect their investment in equipment, machinery and facilities.


The Exiderdome is a unique environment to experience Siemens’ technology first-hand, and provides an opportunity for visitors to participate in seminars on topics such as energy management, industrial communications and safety technologies — all geared to enable Canadian industrial leaders to maximize their operations and improve performance in the global marketplace.

“We have the answers to the questions that are facing Canadian industries today to help them master the challenges of tomorrow,” says Guenther Scholz, president and CEO, Siemens Canada. “The Exiderdome will demonstrate Siemens’ innovative and extensive expertise to the Canadian industrial marketplace through our Totally Integrated Automation and Totally Integrated Power. It brings productivity solutions right to our customers’ doorstep.”

Siemens will unveil Exiderdome to oil and gas industry leaders at the Global Petroleum Show, one of the largest international industry events, hosting more than 50,000 guests.

Following its appearance in Calgary, the Exiderdome will travel to eastern Canada with stops in Toronto (August 25-29), Montreal (September 8-12), Quebec City (September 23-24) and Halifax (October 6-7).

The Canadian visit is part of a global tour that began in China in 2005, and travelled to South Korea, Thailand, Taiwan, Russia and Mexico. After the final stop in Halifax, the Exiderdome will travel to Boston where it will recommence its US tour.

A feat of engineering in itself, the Exiderdome includes seven product venues, conference rooms, an executive lounge and a central atrium which will be used for receptions, training sessions and multimedia presentations. Once assembled, the exhibit is entirely self-contained, including air conditioning, heating, wireless internet, power generation and a fully operating kitchen. A 17-member crew keeps the exhibit operating.

To-date, Siemens has invested more than C$5 million to build Exiderdome and has committed over C$50 million to underwrite the one-of-a-kind global initiative.
