AREVA:Offshore Wind: Installation of the German Trianel Wind Farm Borkum
PARIS -- June 5, 2014
The 40 AREVA (Paris:AREVA) M5000 turbines for the German Trianel wind farm
Borkum have been installed successfully by Trianel in the German North Sea.
Located 52 kilometers off the German coast, this wind farm has a 200 MW
capacity and covers an area of 56 km².
“This key milestone demonstrates AREVA’s expertise in the offshore wind field.
The group now has an installed base capacity exceeding 230 MW, 30 MW of which
have been operating at the alpha ventus park in the North Sea since 2009,”
said Luc Oursel, President and CEO of AREVA. “When the 80 turbines of the
Global Tech I project will be installed in the North Sea, one third of the
offshore installed capacity in Germany will be AREVA’s technology.”
In May of this year, AREVA and its partners were awarded two 500 MW offshore
wind farms in France, Le Treport and the Yeu-Noirmoutier islands, which will
feature AREVA’s new 8 MW turbine. This follows the attribution of another 500
MW field, Saint-Brieuc, in 2012.
These commercial successes, along with the project for a joint venture with
GAMESA, confirm AREVA’s position as a reference player in the European
offshore wind market.
