Siemens Gamesa has inaugurated a new Gamesa Electric technology and manufacturing centre in the Madrid town of San Fernando de Henares for which the company has expanded and upgraded the facilities previously operated in Coslada. This new plant is equipped with two test benches for testing and validating systems with capacity of up to 10MW, up from the previous capacity ceiling of 2MW.
Moreover, these new systems will be applicable in the wind and photovoltaic power industries as well as in other segments such as energy storage. Stretching some 8,400m2, virtually half of the facility is taken up by the test benches; the other area houses the manufacturing lines devoted to the production of power electronics for the wind power, photovoltaic and energy storage segments. Since 2017 , the company has invested over €3 million in this plant and in total, 183 people are currently working at the centre, which is 20% more than last year.
