Magnetek Receives First Order for Large Wind Power Inverters

Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin [RenewableEnergyAccess.com] Magnetek, Inc. received an initial production order for 60 wind power inverters valued at more than $7 million, for delivery in 2007. Magnetek’s digital wind power inverters transform variable-frequency alternating current (AC) from wind turbine generators into the steady flow of 60-cycle AC needed to feed the utility power transmission grid. These first 60 wind inverters are a result of Magnetek’s agreement with a leading wind power company made in 2003, to develop power inverters for large, multi-megawatt wind turbines.
