An additional production line was introduced at the enterprise to organize serial production of a new type of tower. By the end of the year, it is planned to manufacture more than 10 products for Siemens Gamesa, and by the end of 2020 more than 85. The towers manufactured in Taganrog will be used in the construction of the Azov Wind Farm with an installed capacity of 90 MW in the Rostov Region and the Kola Wind Farm in the Murmansk Region with an installed capacity of 201 MW, which are planned to be launched in 2020 and 2021, respectively.

Siemens Gamesa acts in Russia as a supplier of wind turbines for projects of the generating company Enel Russia.

The VRS Tower LLC plant was launched on December 13, 2018 in Taganrog, Rostov Region. The transfer of wind turbine tower production technology to Russia was carried out by the Spanish Windar Renovables. The design production capacity of the enterprise is up to 300 MW per year and will reach this level by the end of 2020. In the first year of operation, the company manufactured more than 80 towers for Russian wind generation projects.
