The M5000 wind turbine, chosen to equip the first German offshore fleet

Construction site of the windfarm Alpha Ventus in the North Sea

Powerful and designed specifically for offshore, the M5000 wind turbine was selected for the first wind farm off the German coast, in the North Sea (Alpha Ventus Project). The six M5000 turbines for the wind farm were installed in record time and went into operation in November 2009. In 2011 and 2012, operating results for the Alpha Ventus project revealed a level of production 15% higher than the customer's expectations. The M5000 have proven reliable, with an availability rate of 98%.
