In addition to the plant in Kemnath, the company recently built a 57,000 square-meter High Energy Photons Center (HEP) in Forchheim, Germany for €350 million (~$400 million).

Scheduled to begin production in 2023, the site will be used for production, research, development and logistics for X-ray tubes and generators used in CT, angiography and X-ray systems. It is the largest single investment in new construction made by Siemens Healthineers.

In America, the company also just struck a deal with the University of California, San Francisco that will see the creation of the first carbon-neutral radiology imaging service.

Both will use Siemens’ Smart infrastructure solutions to monitor power consumption of radiology equipment at UCSF and research ways to reduce standby energy consumption of MR scanners, as well as new Siemens scanner technology that is greener, lighter, and smaller. The aim is to make radiological imaging more eco-friendly, produce better image quality and create more accessibility to medical imaging in Northern California.
