Siemens Gamesa reported its revenues fell 8 percent between January and March to €2.204 billion, affected by lower sales of wind turbine generators.
Siemens Gamesa revenues in the first half amounted to €4,204mn (–9.6 percent).
Siemens Gamesa achieved a record order book of €28.6 billion (+21 percent) during the first half of its fiscal year (October 2019 – March 2020).
Siemens Gamesa achieved this figure after signing €6.830 billion (+36 percent) in the first half and integrating the Service assets acquired from Senvion.
Order between January and March amounted to €2.203 billion (–11 percent), reflecting the normal volatility of the Offshore market and the impact of COVID-19 on the signing of Onshore contracts.

Offshore order intake in the last 12 months rose 56 percent to 2,879 MW.

Siemens Gamesa has firm orders for 5.5 GW in this segment.
