The move by Moventas marks its first entry into the Chinese market. Dongfang is the third-largest wind turbine producer in the country, after Goldwind and Sinovel. Moventas chief executive Jukka Jaamaa says: "We have made an explicit plan to expand our business in Asia, particularly in China. This cooperation with Dongfang Electric is a milestone in our course of exploring the Chinese market." The first sample 3MW turbine will be completed in December 2010.
