Siemens Wind Energy Generation now part of Siemens subsidiary Flender GmbH

“By integrating WG into Flender GmbH, we’re strengthening our business with wind turbine components, thus creating a solid basis for Flender’s planned public listing,” said Horst Kayser, who is responsible for the business activities of Siemens’ Portfolio Companies. “With its listing planned for 2021, we intend to give Flender the independence and flexibility it needs to expand its market leadership in stationary drives technology,” he added.
“The business activities of WG and Flender are a perfect fit. Flender is a leading provider of mechanical drive solutions such as gear units and couplings, while WG boasts a high level of technical expertise in electric drive components, such as generators, for the wind industry. We’re already working together on a hybrid powertrain, which promises new growth potential in the wind area. As a result, we’re optimally positioned to meet wind turbine manufacturers’ growing demand for systems offerings and to offer customers even greater added-value,” said Andreas Evertz, CEO of Flender GmbH.
As far as possible, WG will retain its current organization after the transfer to Flender GmbH. The integration of WG locations outside Germany is to be completed by February 1, 2021.
In a second step, Siemens intends to publicly list Flender via a spin-off. Siemens shareholders are to vote on the spin-off proposal at the upcoming ordinary Annual Shareholders’ Meeting in February 2021.
