aeroMaster 5.0

Zhejiang Windey installs aeroMaster 5.0 prototype in China

The installation of the aeroMaster 5.0 offshore wind turbine developed by aerodyn was finalized on January 25th 2016. Zhejiang Windey, a leading Chinese wind turbine manufacturer, installed the prototype south of Shanghai at the Hangzhou delta. The wind turbine with a rotor diameter of 139 m and 5 MW power has a high-speed drive train with a low voltage generator based on the well-proven aeroMaster drive train concept. The aeroMaster 5.0 is aerodyn's third 5 MW offshore wind turbine.

aeroMaster gets B-Design Assessement

In June 2014, the B-Design-Certificate for the aeroMaster 5.0 MW TC2B Ø139m offshore turbine was granted by DEWI-OCC. We wish to thank all the suppliers for their cooperation in the development and certification of this turbine.

Final witnessing and documentation will follow soon, and aerodyn is awaiting the A-Design Certificate for this license product.

The Hyosung Corporation, a Korean power and industrial systems company and wind turbine manufacturer, installed the prototype on Jeju Island south of the Korean peninsula early this year.

Hyosung Corporation Installs aeroMaster 5.0 Prototype on Jeju Island, Korea

The aeroMaster 5.0 offshore wind turbine developed by aerodyn was fully installed on 24 February 2014. Hyosung Corporation, the Korean power and industrial systems company and wind turbine manufacturer, installed the prototype on Jeju Island south of the Korean peninsula. The wind turbine with a rotor diameter of 139 m and 5 MW power has a high-speed drive train with a medium voltage generator. The turbine was developed incorporating the well-proven aeroMaster drive train concept. The aeroMaster 5.0 is already the third 5 MW offshore wind turbine from aerodyn. A second prototype of the 5 MW turbine will be installed during the course of this year by a Chinese manufacturer.

Rotor blade for 5 MW offshore turbine tested successfully

The aerodynBlade 5.0 -68.0 has successfully passed the static blade test in Korea. The 68 m long rotor blade is to be used in aeroMaster 5 MW offshore turbines and is designed for a rotor diameter of 139 m and type class 2B. The positive outcome of the blade test is a further milestone in the development of the aerodynBlade family and the aeroMaster 5MW wind turbine.

In the test, the blade is subject to loads with maximum forces up to 80 tons, undergoing bending up to approx. 18 m in this process. The blade test was conducted by the Korean Institute KIMS on behalf of our client Hyosung. The blade was manufactured in China at the company of Aeolon. The test was supervised by the certifying company, Germanischer Lloyd Renewables Certification. Success of the test is due to the terrific cooperation between the companies involved.

Offshore wind farm Bard I inaugurated

The German Federal Minister of Economics and Technology, Rösler, opened Germany's largest offshore wind farm Bard I on 26 August 2013. Newspapers reported the Minister said that this shows that technological challenges can be mastered. "All of this is 'made in Germany' and offers tremendous chances", said the Minister. Not only is the production made in Germany but also the turbine design is made in Germany, made by aerodyn.
