Tuesday, everything was finally locked into place for Siemens Gamesa. During the company's first general assembly in Gamesa's hometown of Zamudio in Spain, the shareholders approved both the company's name and officially confirmed former Siemens Wind Power boss Markus Tacke's new role as CEO, and also voted that future general assemblies would henceforth be held in the larger, neighboring city of Bilbao now that the merged wind turbine manufacturer has become so large.

The decision to stick to Gamesa's roots in Spain has strong symbolic value for the Spanish/German – and to some extent, Danish – company. In his speech to the general assembly, Tacke stressed the importance of Siemens Gamesa's roots in the Basque region, where it was founded, and the neighboring Navarra region where it maintains a strong presence.
