Siemens to showcase cost-efficient offshore wind energy technology at GOW 2016 trade show

Siemens will present technologies and services that will help lowering the levelized cost of electricity at the Global Offshore Wind 2016 (GOW) trade show in Manchester, England. As further steps in cost reduction are crucial to enable a sustainable, successful offshore wind industry, the company will showcase new technologies in wind turbines, grid connection, and operations and services. At stand 140 the company presents e.g. its enhanced portfolio of services for offshore wind power plants with focus on digital services and logistics concepts.
