Speaking at the WindEnergy Hamburg event, Siemens' global customer specialist Xenia Lausten said finding the right skill set "is a challenge".
"We're in desperate need of finding almost 200 service technicians. And then we're looking for mechanical engineers and site specific managers, mainly in offshore," she said.
"We're taking the young ones on board then guide them into a career path which fits their situation."
Lausten said it is easier to find skilled personnel in Germany "because they have a wonderful education system. For other countries it can be difficult."
"We do a lot with universities. We have a cooperation with the universities in Hamburg, also in Denmark, across Europe and the UK – wherever we can," she added.
