Siemens Gamesa inaugurated its new wind turbine blade factory in Africa and the Middle East. The 400.00 sq. ft Siemens factory located in the Tanger Automotive City industrial zone involved the investment of 1.1 billion dirhams. It will supply the first 100% made-in-Morocco wind turbine blades in Africa and the Middle East.
The factory will produce SWT-DD-130 turbines (with 4.2 MW of nominal power) and 63 meter-long B63-10 blades, which will be manufactured for Europe, Africa and the Middle East as well for local projects.
The factory is also capable of producing up to 75 meters long elements. These complete blades are manufactured using specially designed technology and composite materials.
