For the first time, a REpower type 5M wind turbine has been set up on the open sea. In the Scottish North Sea, in the Moray Firth, the first of a total of two turbines for the Beatrice Demonstrator Wind Farm has just been set up on a lattice-like jacket structure, piled to the seabed at a depth of 44 metres. It is the biggest turbine offshore.
“We are very proud that the offshore premiere has been successful”, said REpowerÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s CEO Professor Fritz Vahrenholt. “The Beatrice Demonstrator Project for our customer Talisman Energy, to which we are the sole supplier of the turbines, is a giant step for the development of the 5M and offshore wind power.”
