AMSC Signs Wind Deal in China

American Superconductor Corporation (AMSC) is set to supply 100 sets of its wind turbine core electrical components to China’s CSR Zhuzhou Electric Locomotive Research Institute Co. Ltd (CSR-ZELRI).

CSR-ZELRI will use the components in 1.65-megawatt (MW) wind turbines designed by AMSC’s wholly owned Windtec subsidiary. Under the terms of the multi-million-dollar contract, AMSC expects to ship all of the core electrical components by the end of calendar 2009.

“China’s wind industry continues to move forward at an aggressive pace through the global economic downturn, and further growth is projected for the next decade,” said Du Jinsong, general manager of CSR-ZELRI’s wind power business unit
