The management and the works council of Adwen GmbH have agreed on a reconciliation of interests and a social plan as part of the reorganisation of the company. In the long term, 211 jobs at Adwen GmbH will remain mainly at the Bremerhaven location.
The service operation in Bremerhaven will remain in place, while the production and repair plant will be shut down and the sites in Bremen and Emden will be closed. The associated staff reduction of 166 jobs is to be carried out in a socially responsible manner. The measures will be implemented gradually and are to be completed by September 2020.
The core of the socially responsible personnel reduction is a volunteer program for the employees of Adwen GmbH with appropriate compensation payments for the transition into new jobs. In addition, a transfer company will be set up for the affected employees in which they can remain for a maximum of twelve months after leaving the company. In the transfer company, the employees will receive professional training to support them in re-entering a new professional activity.
The job reductions have already been considered in Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy’s global restructuring plans announced in November 2017, covering a reduction of up to 6,000 jobs in 24 countries over three years.
