Exelon Generation awards Siemens the “2006 Operational Excellence Award” for consistent, seamless support of its Nuclear and Power business units


Exelon Power and Exelon Nuclear, two business units of Exelon Generation, have honored Siemens Power Generation with the 2006 Operational Excellence Award for Siemens’ dedication to safety, emergency response, quality and service implementation. The award recognizes suppliers that demonstrate exceptional performance in support of Exelon’s operations. Exelon Power serves the Mid-Atlantic, Northeast and Texas regions with fossil fuel and hydroelectric power generation. Exelon Nuclear operates the largest nuclear fleet in the U.S., and has the third largest commercial nuclear fleet in the world.

As the largest nuclear operator in the U.S., Exelon expects its suppliers to share its commitment to safety, on-schedule performance and seamless operational excellence.
Exelon honors suppliers that excel in key focus areas, including supplier diversity, safety, emergency response and operational excellence, by recognizing them with awards at their annual Exelon Supplier Summit. The 2006 Operational Excellence Award was presented to Siemens at the 2007 Exelon Supplier Summit held in Oak Brook, Illinois.

"From the Exelon Nuclear perspective, Siemens has achieved this honor through consistent and outstanding leadership, as well as an overwhelming sense of plant and equipment ownership. The integration of the emergent LP turbine blading work at Braidwood and the emergent generator repairs at Byron represent great leadership examples where Siemens was able to implement these challenges with a high degree of human performance, quality, and more importantly, safety,” commented Tyler Anthony, Exelon Energy Delivery vice president, Transmission and Substation, and former vice president of Outage and Planning Services at Exelon Nuclear.

He further stated, “Siemens stands out as a unique service supplier that is always in lock-step or one step ahead of Exelon in support of our common goals and plant operation. Remarkably, the Siemens leadership team has been able to seamlessly integrate a large and complex organization into a ‘one-stop-shop’ in support of Exelon Nuclear in order to achieve our operational goals for 2006.”

Mark Schiavoni, president of Exelon Power added, “Siemens has been very responsive and flexible to Exelon Power’s needs during this past year. For one specific outage, Siemens implemented a risk-management tool that enabled Exelon to solve potential problems and put contingency actions into play yielding significant benefits. Siemens not only addressed the high profile issues, but also brought forward solutions to smaller problems, which contributed to their superb outage execution and performance"

“Exelon is an important alliance customer that has exhibited confidence in our service capabilities for many years, and it is a tremendous honor to receive this award from a company with such high standards,” said Craig Weeks, president of the Siemens Power Generation Operating Plant Service Division. “It demonstrates how the alignment of our goals can lead to an ongoing, successful partnership.”

Siemens signed a service alliance agreement with Exelon Nuclear in 2002 and with
Exelon Power in 2003. Siemens previously received the Exelon Safety Award from
Exelon Nuclear in 2005.
