US AMSC receives order from turbine manufacturer Sinovel

CHINA: American Superconductor Corporation (AMSC) has received a $20 million order from Chinese turbine manufacturer Sinovel for wind turbine electrical systems for the company's 1.5 MW turbine.

The order follows a $70 million order received from Sinovel in July 2007 (Windpower Monthly, September 2007). "AMSC's wind power business continues to expand globally, with China serving as our largest market," says AMSC's Greg Yurek. "As Sinovel Wind continues its rapid production ramp, we are also working closely with two additional customers in China to help them initiate production of wind turbines." He adds: "We see strong potential to add a fourth Chinese customer this fiscal year and are working with other potential customers to expand our reach into other countries." The firm now has wind power clients in Australia, Canada, China, the Czech Republic, Ireland, Japan, New Zealand, South Korea, the UK and the US. "We expect to see continued growth in sales of our existing product line for the wind industry and to expand our offerings beyond power electronics going forward," says Yurek.
