Under the initial order, AMSC will deliver the wind turbine electrical control systems in 2011, and Dongfang plans to start volume shipments of the wind turbines, which were designed and jointly developed with AMSC, in 2012.
Ren Jiafu, Vice General Manager at Dongfang Turbine, says: “We look forward to utilising these electrical control systems from AMSC to manufacture our first 3 MW and 5 MW wind turbines while also exploring options to upgrade the 5 MW to 5.5 MW, and plan to begin making volume shipments in 2012.”
Greg Yurek, Found and CEO of AMSC, adds: “A powerhouse in China’s growing wind power market, DTC has partnered with AMSC to introduce its next-generation wind turbines. Having been designed for use both on land and sea, DTC’s 3 MW wind turbine has broad applicability while its 5 MW turbine is particularly well suited for the global offshore wind market.”
