AREVA’s 5-megawatt (MW) offshore wind turbine is efficient, reliable and powerful, and specifically designed for large-scale offshore wind parks.
AREVA designs, manufactures, assembles and commissions 5MW high-output turbines for offshore power generation. AREVA's unique design results in a relatively low weight-per-megawatt, which simplifies transport and erection---crucial logistic and cost factors when working on the open sea. Corrosion prevention through a patented air treatment system ensures that the generator is protected from harsh sea conditions.
AREVA's turbine is also a proven, bankable technology, as demonstrated by the recent 11-bank financing secured for the Borkum West II offshore wind farm located in the North Sea. This €400 million project for Trianel, an association of German urban electric utilities, will supply 200 MWs of clean energy generated from 40 of AREVA’s 5 MW turbines.
Building from our offshore wind project experience and more than 800-megawatt manufacturing pipeline in Europe, AREVA is prepared to be a major domestic supplier to the emerging North American offshore wind market.
Powerful and specifically designed for offshore use, the M5000 wind turbine was selected to equip the first wind farm deployed for widespread use along the German coast, in the North Sea (Alpha Ventus project). The six M5000 turbines intended for this wind farm were installed in summer 2009. They entered into service in November of the same year.
Today, offshore wind farm operators require strong partners offering large turbines with enhanced reliability, proven track record, high-performance and cost-effective design for higher water depths and greater distance to shore.
