On 26 September 2019, the Wind turbine producer Siemens Gamesa informed the Danish press about plans dimiss up to 600 jobs in Denmark. According to the company, the redundancies are due to the phasing out of the onshore wind division in Brande at the end of 2020, just as Siemens Gamesa's factory in Aalborg will cease production of blades for onshore winds by the end of 2019. Despite the dismissals, the factories in Aalborg and Brande will still exist. The factories still produce offshore wind turbines. 

Siemens Gamesa will start negotiations on mitigating the effects of the redundacies with the local Cooperation Committees.
