Charles William Siemens (1823-1883), German-British engineer. Siemens was born in Germany, as Carl Wilhelm Siemens. He came to England in 1843 where he settled and became a naturalized citizen in 1859. Siemens developed a regenerative furnace that recovered heat from exhaust gases to reduce fuel use and achieve higher temperatures. He also worked with electric telegraphs, designing the cable-laying ship Faraday, that laid the first trans-Atlantic cable in 1874. Restrictions:.
