AREVA announced today it is co-sponsoring the IQPC Offshore Wind Power Summit taking place October 26-27 at the Sheraton Premiere Tyson’s Corner, Va.

This summit brings together leaders in offshore wind power for two days of conversation and presentations focusing on solutions for key issues facing the industry.

As the first producer of a 5 Megawatt wind turbine specifically designed for the corrosive ocean environment, AREVA is a leader in establishing the U.S. offshore wind industry and will speak to its vision for the industry at the Summit. Selected for more than 600 MW of offshore wind projects in Europe, with 800 MW more under discussion, AREVA is applying its proven project experience to the U.S. market and is committed to helping build a domestic supply chain.
