With the support of IDEPA, the office will be located in the Scientific & Technological Park of Gijón
China Three Gorges (CTG), the largest renewable energy group in China, chooses Asturias to establish an engineering division to oversee all of its energy constructions in Europe.
CTG is boosting the production of green energy and will open a technical office in Gijón for construction supervision, commissioning, and technical support activities.
To establish itself in Asturias, China Three Gorges has received the support of the Economic Development Agency of Asturias (IDEPA). The office will be located in the Impulsa Building, a business incubator belonging to the Gijón City Council and placed next to the former Universidad Laboral.
Why Asturias: low turnover rate and technical qualifications of workers
These headquarters will have approximately 20 jobs in different phases. The company valued the low turnover rate of workers and the technical qualifications of the human resources available in Asturias as some reasons to set up in our region.
