The aeroMaster 5.0 offshore wind turbine developed by aerodyn Energiesysteme GmbH in Germany was fully installed on 24 February 2014. Hyosung Corporation installed the prototype on Jeju-island south of the Korean peninsula.
The wind turbine with a rotor diameter of 139 metres and 5MW power has a high-speed drive train with a medium voltage generator. The turbine was developed incorporating the aeroMaster drive train concept. The aeroMaster 5.0 is already the third 5MW offshore wind turbine from aerodyn. A second prototype of the 5MW turbine will be installed during the course of this year by a Chinese manufacturer. A fourth offshore design from aerodyn with 6MW power and an integrated drive train (SCD) will also go into operation this year.
