The M5000 wind turbine is the first 5 MW turbine specifically for offshore wind farms. Robust, light and compact, it is designed to withstand the constraints and severe conditions of the marine environment.
Today, offshore wind farm operators require strong partners offering large turbines with enhanced reliability, proven track record, high-performance and cost-effective design for higher water depths and greater distance to shore.
Find out how AREVA is helping utilities to make offshore wind projects successful.
With a rate power of 5 MW, the M5000 wind turbine is aimed at the large offshore wind farm market.
AREVA designs, manufactures, assembles and delivers the turbines. A five year maintenance program is provided as an optional extra. The group also supports its clients in the development of their offshore wind energy projects.
250 AREVA M5000 turbines have been chosen to equip European offshore wind farms.
A wind turbine suited to all types of usage: tripod, jacket, gravitary.
A turbine suitable for withstanding power grid fluctuations: the generator is synchronous to permanent magnets. It is connected to the grid using a 4 quadrant converter.
Light and rigid blades: the blades are made of carbon fiber. Their aerodynamics have been calculated for optimum yield and a reduction in noise emissions.
The innovative hybrid entrainment technology (a single multiplication bearing) combines the benefits of direct entrainment (simplicity and reliability) with that of reduced entrainment (compactness).
The ATMEA1™ reactor is a pressurized water reactor intended for all types of networks, especially mid-power electrical networks.
AREVA assists its clients in risk assessment and management. Its expertise is based on its familiarity with international standards.
