Siemens Energy has announced plans to turn its troubled wind-turbine unit profitable by 2026 and bring it back to profitability. The company has also extended midterm margin targets for its core businesses.
The German company stated that with a clear action plan, simplifying the product portfolio, optimizing footprint and operations, and strengthening processes and control, the wind business will be fixed. In the offshore segment, Siemens Gamesa is increasing production capacity at existing factories to meet customer demand.
The onshore segment of Siemens Gamesa has identified deficiencies, and remediation action is being prepared. Chief Executive Christian Bruch emphasized that turning around Siemens Gamesa remains the highest priority and the company now has a defined path and action plan.
Siemens Energy’s other three business areas account for 70% of the group’s revenue and are all on track to achieve or exceed midterm targets. The company is benefiting from strong market trends such as decarbonization and major grid investment.
Siemens Energy now expects margins of 7%-9% at its transformation of industry business, 9%-11% at grid technologies, and 10%-12% at gas services by fiscal 2026. This represents an increase from previously targeted margins. Last year, Siemens Energy aimed for margins of 6%-8% for transformation of industry, 8%-10% for grid technologies and 10%-12% for gas services by fiscal 2025.
