Offshore Wind: Iberdrola Selects AREVA Turbine for a Large-Scale Project in Germany Business Wire PARIS -- December 19, 2012 Regulatory News: World-leading renewables operator, Iberdrola, has once again selected AREVA’s offshore wind technology for the Wikinger project, to be developed 35 kilometers off the German Baltic Sea coast. Under the terms of the agreement, AREVA (Paris:AREVA) will supply its M5000 5 MW turbine for the Wikinger wind farm that will produce up to 400 MW of electricity and that is to be constructed over 2016 and 2017. This success follows a highly competitive tendering process with several different offshore technologies proposed. Both companies will now enter into further negotiations to finalize the commercial and technical aspects of the supply contract. Last year, Iberdrola, in partnership with Eole-RES, selected AREVA's technology for the 500 MW project in the area of Saint-Brieuc, off the coast of Brittany, as part of the first French offshore wind tender. This new selection of AREVA’s turbine by renewables market leader Iberdrola, demonstrates its recognition of the experience AREVA has acquired over the past years in the field of offshore wind. By 2014, the group will have more than 120 wind turbines installed in the North Sea, thereby reinforcing its leading position in the high-power turbines market. Luc Oursel, CEO of AREVA, said: “We are honoredby Iberdrola’s renewed confidence in AREVA’s offshorewind technology which further comforts the group’s strong ambitions in Europe. This new success further demonstrates the credibility of our long term growth strategy and our long term commitment towards renewable energies.” MORE ABOUT AREVA supplies solutions for power generation with less carbon.
