Senvion has announced an extensive program for the future to secure the company's long-term competitiveness. The initiative will identify excess costs across the entire company, opportunities to reduce overcapacity in production, and invest in research and development, new technologies as well as the quality of Senvion's products and services.

The planned measures will lead to a reduction of an estimated 780 jobs, mainly at Senvion's facilities in Husum, Trampe and Bremerhaven in Germany. The company has currently approximately 4,500 employees worldwide. The company will meet with employees' representatives as soon as possible to begin the negotiations. Senvion hopes to agree on a mutually acceptable balancing of interests, and a severance scheme that will make its decision socially compatible.
