Wind turbine OEM Siemens Gamesa is cutting 266 jobs in Spain with the closure of two factories, it announced on Tuesday, with the falling appetite for smaller wind turbines cited as the chief cause. The facilities in Cuenca, in central Spain, and La Coruña in the north, are both unviable, according to the company. The La Coruña manufacturing plant has no Spanish orders at all for 2021 for its 2.X-114 model, according to Siemens Gamesa. The Cuenca repair facility has also become uncompetitive, according to the firm, as a result of the growing preference to replace rather than repair smaller wind turbines and the site’s inability to handle larger blade sizes.
