FRANKFURT (Reuters) -Siemens Energy on Saturday launched a 4.05 billion euro ($4.28 billion) bid for minority holdings in struggling wind turbine unit Siemens Gamesa, hoping to remove a complex ownership structure that has weighed on its shares.

Siemens Energy has faced mounting shareholder pressure to seek total control of Siemens Gamesa (SGRE), in which it owns a 67% stake inherited after a spin-off from former parent Siemens.
