The 5M is due to be installed on a North Sea bank in October 2006 and will enter operation in November. The investor and operator is the energy company EWE AG, which is located in Oldenburg/Niedersachsen. The required approval for operation has just been granted by DEWI-OCC (Offshore and Certification) GmbH.
