Siemens A&D has delivered its one-millionth Simatic HMI system to Rolls-Royce plc at the SPS/IPC/Drives Show 2002 in Nuremberg, Germany.

The Human Machine Interface division of the Siemens Automation and Drives (A&D) group celebrated the one-millionth Simatic HMIsystem.

At the SPS/IPC/Drives 2002 trade show, Derek McPherson from Rolls Royce's marine business, based at Dunfermline in the UK, received a Golden Simatic Multi Panel as a present from Uwe Frank, manager of Simatic's HMI division, with a warm thank you for the exemplary co-operation.

The anniversary system, a Multi Panel 370, is part of a marine application offered by Rolls Royce. Several MP 370s are used for the operation, observation and alarm monitoring of a ship stabiliser control system. This system will be used on Cunard's Queen Mary 2, which is set to be the world's largest, most expensive cruise liner ever built.
