Iberdrola has signed with Areva a contract valued at approximately € 620 million, for the supply of wind turbines to its 350MW Wikinger offshore project in the Baltic Sea.
The French company will supply 70 M5000-135 5MW wind turbines, worth € 550 million. Under the terms of the contract, Areva will also provide maintenance services, valued at € 70 million, for a 5-year period which may be extended for another five years. Areva will deliver this contract within the framework of a joint venture recently agreed with Gamesa to combine both groups’ offshore businesses. Manufacturing will take place at Areva’s production sites of Bremerhaven and Stade, in the North of Germany, and the turbines are scheduled to be installed as early as 2017 on jacket foundations from the port of Sassnitz.
