Siemens plans new production hub for 60-Hertz gas turbines in Charlotte, NC

German industrial conglomerate Siemens AG expands its strong presence in the United States by consolidating production of gas turbines for electric utilities in North Carolina.
By building a new production plant for 60-Hertz gas turbines at its existing facility in Charlotte, North Carolina Siemens will create a new global production hub for gas and steam turbines and generators for an expected boom in electricity demand in the Southeast and around the world.
A subsidiary of the Munich-based company, Siemens Energy Inc. plans to initially invest approximately $135 million.
The move is expected to create 825 engineering and manufacturing jobs in Charlotte within five years, paying an average wage of almost $64,000 a year. Production in the expanded plant is scheduled to start in the fall of 2011, the company said.
To make the move to Charlotte the company was promised a package of tax breaks, grants and low-interest loans worth up to $154.75 million.
