Iberdrola chooses Areva Wind as preferred supplier for its Wikinger Offshore Wind Farm in German waters.

Under the terms of the agreement, with construction scheduled for 2016 and 2017, Areva Wind will support Iberdrola on foundation and tower design optimization, project logistics, installation concept and project certification with regulator Bundesamt für Seeschifffahrt und Hydrographie (BSH).

The Wikinger offshore wind project, currently being developed in German territorial waters of the Baltic Sea, will have approximately 400 megawatts (MW) installed capacity.

The M5000, the first 5MW wind turbine designed exclusively for large-scale offshore wind farms, will be manufactured at Areva’s facilities in Bremerhaven (Germany). When signed, the contract will also include equipment transportation, installation, commissioning and maintenance.

This will be the first time that Iberdrola installs 5 MW turbines at a wind farm, representing a great technological leap forward for the company. The turbines will be located some 35 kilometres off the coast of the German Island of Rügen, covering an area of 34 square kilometres in the Baltic Sea. The wind farm will produce enough green clean energy to power 350,000 homes.

Spain-based Iberdrola has offices in Glasgow, London, Berlin, Madrid and Paris, the Offshore Business Division of Iberdrola is developing a project pipeline of over 11,000 MW across Europe.
