The wind energy of tomorrow will be generated on open seas. The development of high-performance offshore plants is the challenge for the industry. AREVA Wind has risen to that challenge – with the M5000.Since 2000 AREVA Wind has been developing, planning and producing the M5000, the first 5MW wind turbine designed exclusively for large-scale offshore wind farms. Highly qualified technicians - specialists from all areas of the wind energy sector – are working hand in hand with component suppliers. This expertise combined with many years of experience, has resulted in a powerful competitive edge, both in knowledge and technical know-how, which is consistently realized in production, startup, service and maintenance. AREVA Wind´s choice of location also shows consistency, with the development and manufacturing taking place directly at the Quayside in Bremerhaven’s. From a logistical point of view, this location is ideal for shipping the M5000 directly to the offshore wind farms.Wind energy is one of the four renewable energy technologies (wind, solar, bioenergy, hydrogen and energy storage solutions) offered by AREVA Renewables.
