Gamesa UK turbine factory shortlist

Wind turbine manufacturer Gamesa has shortlisted Harwich, Humber and Tyneside as the possible venues for its offshore wind turbine factory.

Gamesa is now in the final stages of fixing the location of a factory in England. The factory is to employ up to 600 people, as well as supporting more jobs in its industrial supply chain. The final decision is due by June reported UK paper .

Gamesa estimates that the construction and development of its offshore wind business in the UK will create over 1,000 direct jobs and another 800 indirect jobs at local suppliers. Recently, it emerged that Gamesa is proposing to set up its marine wind technology centre in Scotland. Glasgow has been identified as the preferred location for the facility, subject to final agreements on financing. The announcement came just a few months after Gamesa unveiled its industrial plan for offshore wind power in the UK, where it plans to invest over €150 million through 2014.

Gamesa's offshore wind business headquarters will be based in London, from where it will engage in sales, project development, finance and management activities. In addition to its offshore technology centre in Glasgow and a potential industrial, logistics and O&M base in Dundee, Gamesa's offshore wind strategy for the UK includes construction of a blade production plant (location, under study) and engaging in offshore logistics from a number of UK ports, around which it will locate its wind turbine O&M operations.
