Siemens Energy (NYSE: SI) officially opened a new 64,000-square-foot wind service distribution center in Woodward, Okla., on Feb. 16. Siemens said the Woodward facility will allow for reduced delivery times and greater parts availability.
Siemens' Woodward wind service center will store and distribute main components and spare parts, including wind turbine blades, drive assemblies and generators, as well as tooling operations. The warehousing operation opened with 14 employees, and over the next five years, Siemens said it expects to create up to 40 "green-collar" jobs at the facility.
The Woodward wind service distribution center joins Siemens’ other wind power locations in the U.S., including the company's recently opened distribution warehouse in Wichita, Kan., a nacelle assembly plant in Hutchinson, Kan., a wind turbine blade manufacturing facility in Fort Madison, Iowa, a service center in Houston, Texas, an R&D center in Boulder, Colo., two gearbox factories in Elgin, Ill., an offshore office in Boston, Mass., and the company's Americas headquarters in Orlando, Fla.
