In 2004, Siemens has successfully bought Danish company, Bonus Energy A/S. since then, Siemens wind power sector began one of the world’s leading wind turbine suppliers. While the acquisition of Bonus, Siemens got blade patented technology, Integralblades of Bonus, obtained core competitiveness and got Bonus orders on wind turbine equipment and offshore wind farms. Bonus company’s main technical people became technical director of Siemens Wind Energy Department.

After Siemens entered the wind power industry, the United States became the first overseas expansion of its strategic priorities.
