In connection with the establishment of an innovation and technology center for synchronous motors and mechatronic solutions, Siemens also intends to develop, among other things, gearless wind turbines in Bad Neustadt in the future – a move that will further enhance the location’s prospects. “We’re currently in difficult talks with the employee representatives and have now defined the first component of a constructive solution. Our commitment to renewable energies addresses a very dynamic global growth market. The Bad Neustadt location can make a major contribution in this area by leveraging our employees’ technical knowhow in electric drives to push innovation in wind power systems. We’ve said from the beginning that we’re striving for sustainable solutions, and we’re now following up our words with deeds,” explained Siegfried Russwurm.
