Siemens Energy Inc. announced Wednesday it will open a wind-turbine training center in an existing business park near Orlando International Airport.

Orlando was competing with an existing Siemens training center in Houston to land the new operation, where a staff of 50 will host as many as 100 wind-turbine workers each week.

Siemens Energy had picked Orlando as a possible location because of the airport's size and because the company's headquarters is nearby in east Orange County, near the University of Central Florida.
