It is reported that Siemens-Gamesa will suspend its wind turbine sales in China and raise prices by 5% worldwide.
Andreas Nauen, CEO of Siemens-Gamesa, said in an interview that, like many other Western wind turbine suppliers, Siemens-Gamesa has become much less competitive after the rise of local turbine manufacturers in China, such as Goldwind, Mingyang and Envision. Therefore, the Chinese market is no longer the focus of Siemens-Gamesa. It is also considering giving up the Russian and Turkish markets.
“ We see it as our manufacturing center. ” Paulo Soares, head of onshore wind power in the Asia Pacific region, said, “China is cost competitive, has a perfect supplier network, and its products meet our global standards, so we can use our wind turbines produced in China anywhere.”
According to statistics, in 2020, Siemens-Gamesa Tianjin plant produced more than 2.3GW onshore wind turbines for Siemens-Gamesa, accounting for more than 30% of the global total output of 7.7GW.
