Wind major Siemens Gamesa will not cut more staff from key country

The wind turbine manufacturer is not planning to implement any more of the company's up to 6,000 redundancies in Denmark. The country will remain a key location for the firm.

Siemens Gamesa has released a fair share of bad news to employees over the last year. Both before and after the merger with Gamesa last April, there has been a steady stream of announced layoffs from the major wind player – including several rounds of layoffs in Danish locations such as Brande, Vejle, Lindø, Tinglev, Aalborg and a complete shutdown of the blade factory in Engesvang.

The exact number of layoffs has not been disclosed, as certain job reshuffles have simultaneously taken place.
