Offshore wind: AREVA has completed 50% of Trianel Wind park Borkum

(PresseBox) (Paris, ) AREVA has successfully installed 20 of the 40 wind turbines at the Trianel Wind park Borkum, located in the German North Sea. Installation of AREVA's M5000 turbines began in September 2013. Located 45 kilometers off the german coast, the Trianel Windpark Borkum covers an area of 56 km². This park will produce its first megawatt-hour of wind power this year.

"The AREVA's proven technology and his experience in the installation of wind turbines give to the group undeniable credibility and know-how" said Louis- François Durret, AREVA Renewables CEO: "This new milestone offers to AREVA an advantage which will be particularly profitable for the French offshore wind tender where AREVA has been selected as turbine supplier by the GDFSUEZ/EDPR/Neoen Marine consortium."

By year-end, AREVA will have installed 120 offshore turbines in Germany providing electricity to around 600,000 households.
