Our B75 journey
One single product – one giant leap for future generations of Siemens Gamesa blades
The total number of B75 blades made globally is 3,366 - to put it into perspective, if all those blades were all placed in a row, it would be 252 kilometers long! And if that is not impressive enough, the B75 blades produced in Siemens Gamesa can cover the surface of 256 football fields, weigh as much as 12,466 elephants and, most importantly, have contributed to reducing the equivalent carbon emissions of around 70 million energy consumers!
“Closing this chapter of our incredible journey has left room for innovation and living up to our values as a company,” adds Peter Birkegaard. “Our biggest achievement is that our platform allows us to grow, transform, and become even more digital,” he says, before elaborating that thanks to the B75 experience, Siemens Gamesa is now able to live up to the strategic goals for next blade generations.
What truly amazes me is the giant leap we have made together as a company in only four years! From solving production challenges in Aalborg in 2015 to having more than 3,300 world-class B75 blades made globally between Aalborg, Hull and Lingang until 2019 - just imagine what we can achieve with our blade types in the future!
