The installation phase of the first AREVA M5000 turbines has begun for the
German offshore wind farm Global Tech I and Trianel Windpark Borkum in the
North Sea.
By 2014, these two parks will host 120 turbines (40 at Trianel Windpark
Borkum, 80 at Global Tech I) for an installed capacity of 600 megawatts,
providing electricity to around 600,000 households. AREVA’s technology will
represent at that point, 33% of the 1800 MW of Germany’s offshore wind
installed base.

The Trianel Windpark Borkum, with a 200 MW capacity, is located nearly 45
kilometers off the island of Borkum, near the alpha ventus park where six
AREVA turbines have been in operation since 2009. The Global Tech 1 park, with
a 400 MW capacity, is located at a distance of 110 kilometers from the German
coast, which will constitute a world first.

Louis-Francois Durret, Senior Executive Vice-President of AREVA’s Renewable
Energies Business Group, said “By giving us their confidence, our customers
Trianel and Global Tech I, have enabled us to reinforce our key player
position on the European offshore wind market and positions us favourably to
win future contracts in France and the United Kingdom.”
