Moventas wins contract to supply gearboxes to Areva

The Euro 80 million deal is for supply of the company's 5MW medium speed wind gear.

The new offshore gear will strengthen the Moventas product range, especially for the European markets, where
the demand for offshore wind turbines is showing promising signs of growth. But challenging offshore conditions set
extremely high requirements for both product design and manufacturing technologies

Moventas is set to provide AREVA Wind’s international offshore wind expansion with a reliable medium speed offshore wind gear.

With a rated power of 5 MW, AREVA’s M5000 wind turbine - with its innovative medium-speed concept - has now racked up three years operational experience in the German North Sea, and the group is now moving into serial
production with its confirmed backlog of 120 machines.

Beyond this, AREVA says it is aiming at strong international expansion, with a focus on the European markets, in particular the United Kingdom and France wind programmes.
