China CNR’s wind turbine making branch, Yongji Electric Motor Co, has completed assembling the 100th 1.5MW direct-drive permanent magnetic wind turbine, to be exported to India.

China CNR said it spent two months to deliver the India export order, so far the largest wind turbine export deal to India.

The last batch of wind turbines will be loaded in Shanghai Port and shipped to India on 3 February, the company said.

Industry insiders say the wind turbines were produced by Xi’an Goldwind, previously a subsidiary of China’s largest wind turbine maker Goldwind.

In November, Goldwind sold 80% of its subsidiary Xi'an Goldwind Technology, for CNY 64.8 million ($10 million), to Yexx, a wholly-owned subsidiary of CNR.

CNR was unavailable for comment.

CNR's 1.5MW turbines are designed by Aerodyn while Goldwind's are developed with Vensys.

China CNR Yongji Electric Motor is a large component supplier of wind turbine manufacturing in China. It is able to supply power generators for 600kw through 5MW turbines, accounting for 30% of Chinese market share in 2012.
