Torgelow - The crisis-induced slowdown of the wind energy industry now also leads to layoffs at suppliers.
The iron foundry Torgelow GmbH (Kreis Uecker-Randow) will be released in late September to 160 temporary workers from a total of 750 employees, said the CEO, Peter Krumhoff, on Tuesday in Torgelow. Even when permanent staff "adjustments" are planned, which have already been set as yet. "These are after-effects of the financial crisis lead to less wind farms currently being built," said Krumhoff. The production of castings for wind turbines has halved. "This is so similar to the wind turbine manufacturer Nordex," compared Krumhoff. Nordex had also announced job cuts.
