First AREVA turbines installed at wind power farms offshore
First AREVA turbines begin installation at the Trianel Windpark
Borkum and GlobalTech I wind power projects offshore Germany. The
installation phase of the first AREVA M5000 turbines has begun for the
German offshore wind power 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.
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.
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.
