The new Siemens Wind Power Division headquartered in Hamburg will start operations on the 1st of October.

"Hamburg is a highly attractive location and at the same time one of the world's most important wind power centers. For that reason we will in the future be running our fast-growing wind power business from this city," said Michael Suess, member of the Managing Board of Siemens AG and CEO of Siemens Energy. "With our new organizational setup we'll have a stronger regional alignment and greater customer intimacy. They are key prerequisites to continuing the success story of our wind power business in the future, too. Our starting position for that is very good."

In Germany alone, Siemens has already secured orders for six offshore wind power plants in the North and Baltic Sea with a combined capacity of 1300 megawatts (MW). It is anticipated that the work force of Siemens Wind Power in Hamburg will triple from the current 170 to over 500 by 2013. Worldwide Siemens has a staff of approximately 7800 in the wind power sector, with around 1000 in Germany.

Olaf Scholz, Mayor of Hamburg said: "Hamburg is the capital city of wind power in Germany. With the decision taken by Siemens AG we're increasing the possibility of together turning the north German states into one of the world's leading locations in this industry. The decision is good for Hamburg as a business location and good for Hamburg as an environmental capital. My understanding of modern environmental policy is above all also linked with the ability to promote and implement technical innovations. I'm a fan and admirer of engineered environmental protection. Wind power is part of that."
