Areva safely ships Trianel wind turbines

Energy company Areva has successfully shipped 40 wind turbines to the Dutch town of Eemshaven.

Areva wind turbines arrive in Eemshaven

Areva will store and monitor the turbines before installing them at the Trianel wind farm at Borkum, Germany in the spring.

“The safe and successful transport of the 120 big components of the M5000 wind energy converter was possible thanks to the good cooperation with Trianel. The successful execution is clear evidence for the necessity of strategic partnerships and for the safety spirit within the entire offshore industry.”

The 5 MW M5000 is the first wind turbine built solely for harsh offshore conditions, according to the fiorm.

The wind farm will be constructed 45km north of Borkum island. Installation of the foundations began in June 2012.
