Alstom proposed a restructuring plan for its Spanish onshore wind power business that would result in the closure of two plants and the loss of 373 jobs in the country.

The company will be closing its As Somozas (Coruña) plant and its Zamora plant. Electrical equipment production of the As Somozas plant will be moved to the Buñuel (Navarra) plant. The Zamora plant is currently used to manufacture towers.

The company’s central offices in Spain will also be affected, but Alstom said Spain will continue to be “the knowledge base and technical development center for Alstom Wind.” The company also confirmed its commitment to strengthen its global research and development center in Barcelona.
