Siemens To Produce Wind Turbines In China

Technology group Siemens says it is expanding its global manufacturing network for wind turbine plants and is building a new production facility in Lingang New City in Shanghai, China.

This new 180,000 square metre rotor blade and nacelle plant is scheduled to begin operations in the second half of 2010, initially with 400 employees.

It will initially produce blades for 2.3 and 3.6 MW wind turbines using its proprietary IntegralBlade process. Production capacity for the new facility is initially planned at 500 MW annually, though Siemens has already reserved additional space in Lingang for potential expansion.

The wind turbine plants produced in Shanghai will be for the Chinese market and for export. Siemens adds that it is investing more than EUR60 million in setting up the new site.

Wolfgang Dehen, CEO of the Siemens Energy Sector and member of the managing board of Siemens AG said: "China could soon become the largest wind energy market in the world and with our new production facility in Shanghai we are establishing an excellent starting position for meeting the growing demand of this exciting market.”
