Hamburg, Jul 05, 2016
Siemens' direct drive wind turbine technology for offshore and onshore wind turbines reaches the next development milestone: The latest addition to the offshore direct drive platform, the SWT-8.0-154, represents yet another significant step towards grid parity for offshore wind. The 8-MW turbine is based on the existing offshore direct drive platform, incorporating only smaller evolutions.

Despite a material downturn in the sector, Siemens expects the acquisition of Dresser-Rand and Rolls-Royce's former energy business to generate considerably greater synergies than originally anticipated. At the Energy and Oil & Gas Capital Market Day in Houston, Texas, Siemens Managing Board member Lisa Davis explained that the integration of the two companies was expected to generate synergies of €365 million by fiscal 2019 – or €165 million above the planned figure.
Hamburg, Jun 29, 2016
Siemens will supply three direct drive wind turbines of the type SWT-3.2-113 for the onshore wind power plant Naundorf. These modern wind turbines add about ten megawatts (MW) to the site's existing wind power capacity. Additional Siemens medium-voltage switchgear located in the turbine towers will play a key role. These components enable the three turbines to connect and disconnect themselves to the grid in time staggered periods. The order includes a 20-year service agreement.
Manchester, Jun 22, 2016
In early June, 2016, eleven members of the wind industry association Wind Europe issued a joined declaration containing the target of making offshore wind energy more cost competitive with conventional power generation within the coming years. At the Global Offshore Wind 2016 conference and exhibition in Manchester, England, Siemens as one of the first companies in the business is showcasing its commitment to lower the Levelized Cost of Energy (LCoE) for offshore wind power.
Munich, Jun 17, 2016
Siemens and Gamesa have signed binding agreements to merge Siemens' wind power business, including wind services, with Gamesa to create a leading global wind power player. Siemens will receive newly issued shares of the combined company and will hold 59 percent of the share capital while Gamesa's existing shareholders will hold 41 percent. As part of the merger, Siemens will fund a cash payment of €3.75 per share, which will be distributed to Gamesa's shareholders (excluding Siemens) immediately following the completion of the merger (net of any ordinary dividends paid until completion of the merger). The cash payment represents 26 percent of Gamesa's unaffected share price at market close on January 28, 2016.
