A-Power Receives 135-MW Wind Turbine Contract

A-Power Energy Generation Systems Ltd. announced that it has signed its second sales contract with China National Automation Control System Corp. (CACS) for the sale of fifty 2.7-megawatt (MW) wind turbines. This is in addition to a previously announced contract between A-Power and CACS for five of the 2.7-MW units.

These units are expected to be delivered by July, 2009. A-Power will supply the turbines for CACS’ projects in the Gansu province and the Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region. The wind turbines will be produced at A-Power’s wind turbine production facility in Shenyang, China, which has an annual production capacity of 300 units of 2.7-MW wind turbines and 420 units of 750-kilowatt wind turbines.

“We look forward to our expanded relationship with A-Power. Their 2.7-MW wind turbine has already been market tested by Fuhrlander in Europe and is currently the largest land-based wind turbine that is commercially available to us in China. These large turbines will help us achieve a greater amount of wind energy output in each of our new wind farms in Gansu and Inner Mongolia,” said Shenghang Wang, general manager of CACS.
