Siemens will build a factory in Morocco to manufacture rotor blades for onshore wind turbines, creating up to 700 jobs. The construction of the factory is expected to start as early as the spring of 2016 and it is scheduled to commence operations in spring 2017.
The planned production facility will have a surface area of 37,500 square meters and will be located in Tanger Automotive City, which is approximately 35 kilometres from Tanger Med port. Centrally located between Europe and Africa, the Tanger Med port provides the right conditions for the handling and export of blades to various locations in Africa, the Middle East and Europe.
