GAMESA. SEEKING NEW STREAMS

Escrito el 28 febrero 2010 por Jesus Guerro en General

As that song by the 80s of Madrid nightlife said, today is “bad times for the lyric” If Spain boasted as world leader in production and installation of wind energy, it has surprised the launch of the news for Gamesa (the largest producer of mills in the country) of the application of an Employment Regulation Plan that affects more than 200 workers at plants of, Miranda de Ebro, Medina del Campo, Zaragoza and greater stress on the blade factory in Navarre with 150 workers, who will not go their jobs during the next 6 months.
The Plan that affects to 8% of the entire payroll is due to the dramatic fall in orders for windmills. Clavet, president of the Company, discharges against the government and blames the regulatory framework and the creation of Preassigning Projects Registration as the main bottleneck that has led to the current stoppage.

From other forums, others doubt about the economic feasibility and desirability of continuing to support with grants a type of energy generation being an example of cleaness throughout its entire life cycle, that is, not only in production but in the absence of toxic waste , but on the other hand not being sufficiently profitable in the short term to keep the defendant investment effort.
Not for nothing, it is also a cherished highlight, the falling demand in Europe for this type of installation.
So Clavet has not hesitated to proclaim, to keep the current regulatory system, a boost to its growth strategy, now aiming to build marine wind power generators. So its diversification strategy is focused towards the UK, a country which has provided huge budgets to the development of this type of electrical generation. Thus, Gamesa also diversifies risk and expands its portfolio of clients, providing more to companies such as RWE, EDF and EON, well positioned in the awarding of the bids of the crown. That frees the producer, at the same time, from a narrow relationship almost exclusively with the Spanish company Iberdrola Renovables.
The net turnover has been reduced by 16% over year end 2008, reaching 3.187 million euros.
However, it seems to be only a temporary measure as the company looks optimistic about the second half of the year when its production will be activated again thanks to the increasing demand coming mainly from the U.S. and China.
