Installation of the Multibrid M5000 successfully completed


December 02, 2004

Multibrid completes the installation of the first five-meawatt prototype with Multibrid Technology almost in record-breaking time.

In the late afternoon of December 1 the hub together with the 56.5 meter blades were mounted to the nacelle in a height of 102 meters – now the erection works are completely finished.

The installation of the M5000 was managed by the team of Multibrid in an almost record-breaking time of only eight days. The basis for the quick erection time, which is needed for offshore application, is the innovative drive train, which makes it possible to install the nacelle with only one lift – the nacelle installation only took half a day.

With a rated nominal power of five megawatts and a tower head mass of 310 tons, the M5000 is worldwide the lightest plant in this power category. Already this year the prototype, equipped with all offshore specific characteristics, will deliver power for the net in Bremerhaven.

The Multibrid Entwicklungsgesellschaft mbH thanks all persons and companies involved for their tireless participation during the installation of the plant.

PROKON Nord Energiesysteme GmbH from Leer has taken over Multibrid Entwicklungsgesellschaft mbH only in December last year from Pfleiderer AG.
