Areva Wind, the wind turbine manufacturer from Bremerhaven, has teamed up with a development company Energiekontor Besides longer and slender rotor blades, Areva added several additional design features like a new nacelle design aimed at easier assembly, improved serviceability, and enhanced health and safety performance. The M will also provide significantly higher energy at lower wind speed sites, while remaining an ideal fit for the harsh conditions of high wind speed sites.

The new m rotor diameter, combined with a light design and an improved nacelle, reduces the cost of energy while maximizing customer revenues. This relatively low weight facilitates the transport and erection of the turbines; a crucial factor when working on the open sea.

The design of the M turbine, which is exclusively designed for offshore conditions, is a unique hybrid drive solution combining best-in-class quality standards and unique offshore services to meet customer needs.


The turbine was one of the first turbines with journal bearings in the gearbox, known for their compactness and long lifetime, high-load bearing capability and resistance to impact loads. The new light nacelle design, adapted to harsh sea conditions, offers simplified maintenance work and optimized health and safety. Areva Blades production facility is in Stade, near Hamburg, where the Areva nuclear division is dismantling a nuclear sreva station. Views Read Edit View history. But the Areva group’s liability insurance “may also be brought to bear”, implying it too will have to shoulder additional costs.
