Siemens Making US Wind Push with New Kansas Facility; CEO Eric Spiegel Comments

Eric Spiegel

Siemens Energy has opened a new wind turbine nacelle assembly facility in Hutchinson, Kan.

The firm views the move as a big step in its North America growth plan as well as its commitment to renewable energy stateside.

“We’re investing in wind in America because we believe that wind power is here to stay,” CEO Eric Spiegel said. “The U.S. is one of the most important wind power markets in the world and by opening our first nacelle assembly facility in the U.S., we are closer to our customers, allowing us to better meet the strong demand for clean energy right where it’s used. We are optimistic that there will continue to be a long-term support system for wind power in the U.S., which will serve to solidify our country’s growing energy independence using this clean and abundant natural resource to fulfill a sustainable electricity demand.”
