December 8 (Renewables Now) - Wind turbine supplier Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy SA (BME:SGRE) is consolidating its North America and Latin America regions in an attempt to obtain greater efficiencies and operational excellence, it announced Thursday.

The newly-formed Americas region will be headed by Jose Antonio Miranda and Darnell Walker as CEOs. Miranda will lead the Onshore segment, while Walker will be in charge of the Service business, according to the announcement.

Miranda was the head of the onshore activities for Gamesa’s Latin America region through April 2017, when the Spanish company merged with Siemens Wind Power. On the other hand, Walker was previously CEO for the Service North America region and will now expand his role.

Jacob Andersen, who was the CEO of Siemens Gamesa’s North America Onshore business, has chosen to pursue opportunities outside of the company. Similarly, Leandro Nunez, head of the Service Latin America region, will leave Siemens Gamesa at the end of 2017.

The company noted it has more than 26 GW of installed capacity in the Americas, including 17.5 GW under service.
