Siemens to build factory for nacelles in Kansas

The construction of the 28,000 m2 production plant in Hutchinson is set to start in August. According to Siemens, the first nacelle made in Kansas will leave the factory in December 2010. All the nacelles manufactured in Kansas will be used for the 2.3 MW turbines from Siemens. A production capacity of 650 units per year in planned.

The factory will be equipped with a direct loading station on the railway. Additionally, the nacelles can be shipped from the port of Catoosa, 400 km away, to their place of deployment.
With the new production plant, Siemens will strengthen its presence in the USA – two years ago the company opened a new rotor blade factory in Fort Madison, in the US state of Iowa.
