The management of Adwen GmbH, a subsidiary of Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy (SGRE), today announced plans for reorganization. The currently 480 positions in Germany will be reduced by 260. Implementation of this reorganization should be completed by the end of September 2020. Adwen's site in Bremerhaven will be retained for service activities. Management will begin negotiations with the workers’ council immediately in order to implement the changes in the most socially responsible way possible. The job reductions have already been considered in SGRE’s global restructuring plans announced in November 2017, covering a reduction of 6,000 jobs in 24 countries over three years.

The background of this decision is the previously announced change of the business model with a focus on servicing the installed Adwen wind turbines. Adwen will be functionally integrated into SGRE’s business unit Service and SGRE’s corporate functions, respectively. "The lack of new orders has put Adwen into this difficult situation. In conjunction with excess capacities and the increasing cost pressure in the wind industry, the intended changes are inevitable”, explains Hans-Rolf Huppert, Managing Director and CFO of Adwen.

That job reduction is a further step in the announced restructuring process of Adwen that already included the discontinuation of the blade production in Stade with a corresponding balance of interest and social plan, a voluntary program for employees to transfer to SGRE’s factory in Cuxhaven and a voluntary program in certain organizational areas to leave the company.

"The anticipated personnel adjustment is a hard cut for Adwen and a challenging situation for the affected employees and their families. We will be working closely and in a constructive way with the workers’ council on concluding a balance of interest and a fair social plan as fast as possible,” said Carsten König, Managing Director and CEO of Adwen.
