Siemens Industrial Turbomachinery Ltd.

With over 170 years of engineering history, including 75 years of designing, developing and manufacturing industrial gas turbines in Lincoln, Siemens are at the forefront of energy sustainability – supplying efficient power and lifetime product service to the global oil and gas industry and the power generation industry.

Siemens stands for innovative strength, a passion for technology, sustainability, responsibility and an uncompromising commitment to quality and excellence – this is what Siemens has exemplified throughout its long history.

Through CSR (Corporate and Social Responsibility), Siemens aims to maximise the positive impact our business can have in local communities and we are very proud to partner with the Frequency Festival this year.


Neil Corner, Managing Director, Siemens Industrial Turbomachinery, said:

“We are delighted to partner with Frequency Festival 2019 and support this local event. We want to help encourage tomorrow’s engineers and hope the activities in the Fabratory will spark interest and inquisitiveness in engineering. 

“We are also pleased to be part of The Meet Up 2019 which focuses on Women in Tech – through events such as this, myself and my colleagues welcome the opportunity to share some of our own experiences and act as ambassadors for a diverse and inclusive workplace.”

Lincoln BIG (Lincoln Business Improvement Group) has been in existence since 2003, but became a formal Business Improvement District (BID) in 2005.

The Lincoln BIG pro-actively supports more than 800 levy payers across the BID district. It plays a key role in ensuring the city centre is clean, bright and welcoming and stages its own vibrant events and supports others led by partners’ organisations. These bring thousands of extra visitors into the city.

Our core services for businesses include the support of our team of wardens, our Lincoln in Bloom initiative, Security Group, the management of bus and car parking deals, Christmas activities and the operation of the Lincoln Visitor Centre.

Everything we do is designed to help our levy paying businesses to succeed and grow, as the city continues to develop.


Lincoln BIG Chief Executive Sarah Loftus said:

“We are thrilled to be welcoming the return of the Frequency International Festival of Digital Culture to the city later this month.

“Frequency never fails to deliver an exciting digitally-based programme of attractions that are accessible for people of all ages.

“It really boosts city footfall and leaves a long-lasting legacy, opening people’s minds to the versatility of digital technologies and giving them something different to talk about for weeks after the event.”

City of Lincoln Council is a high-performing and innovative organisation, focused on providing quality services and delivering outcomes that matter.

Our focus is on driving economic growth; delivering quality housing; reducing inequality and enhancing our remarkable place.

These priorities are integral in helping ensure Lincoln remains a fantastic place to live, work, study and visit. They are also the drivers behind encouraging a creative and innovative mind-set that ensures Lincoln is an exciting place to be.

In recent years, our vibrant cathedral city has embraced change while respecting its rich heritage. We have attracted significant investment, which has had a positive effect on the greater Lincolnshire economy and helped drive the city and county forward.

By working in partnership with communities, stakeholders and businesses we are helping build the foundation for Lincoln’s ambitious future and ensuring we make a positive difference to the city and its residents in everything we do.

We are very proud to be Lincoln.


Simon Walters, Director for Communities and Environment, City of Lincoln Council said:

“Lincoln is growing at a very fast pace with an incredible level of investment coming into the city centre, completely transforming it through a brand new £30m transport hub, associated regeneration of adjacent streets and investment in a free WIFI network across the area.

The success has been integrating the historic nature of the city with a contemporary dynamic feel. Frequency Festival therefore has a natural home in the city and we very much look forward to hosting the festival once again.”
