Siemens Gamesa cuts 600 further jobs at Aalborg

Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy (SGRE) has announced a further round of job cuts at its Aalborg blade plant, affecting 730 employees.

SGRE has cut over 1,500 blade manufacturing jobs in 2017.

According to local reports, 600 jobs at the site will be lost, with a further 130 roles being redistributed.

The move comes just eight months after an initial 150 jobs were cut at the site in February – prior to Siemens’ merger with Gamesa.

“We are taking these steps as a measured and responsible response to changing conditions in some of our principal markets. Siemens Gamesa continually adjusts its operations to market needs and customer demands,” SGRE chief executive Markus Tacke said.

“They do not in any way alter our conviction that the medium- to long-term prospects for the company continue to be very positive,” Tacke added.

The announcement follows the closure of SGRE’s Engesvang blade factory in Denmark in February, affecting 430 jobs, and its blade site in Ontario, Canada, in July, cutting 340 jobs in the process.

The latest round of lay-offs means SGRE has cut over 1,500 jobs from its blade plants in 2017 alone.
