The Danish government's plans to send 800 MW offshore wind capacity to tender will a likely create 8,500 full time jobs during the construction period. Several companies will be recruiting more labor power. One of these is Siemens Gamesa, writes Danish business daily Berlingske Business.

The big focus on offshore wind energy is not limited to Denmark, and Siemens Gamesa CEO Markus Tacke expects between 58 and 108 GW in offshore wind capacity to be installed in Europe by 2030. According to Berlingske, such volumes would require around 34,500 new turbine blades and 11,500 new nacelles.
