China Wind Systems Signs US $14M Contract to Supply Wind Tower Flanges

China Wind Systems Inc. has signed a $14 million contract to supply wind tower flanges to Chengxi Shipyard Co. Ltd. The agreement with Chengxi indicates that the company will deliver wind tower flanges from September 2009 to June 2010 in the amount of 800 to 1,200 tons per month, although the timing and price may be subject to adjustment by the Chengxi.

General Electric, one of Chengxi’s largest wind customers, will be the end customer for these wind tower flanges. Some of Chengxi’s other major wind customers include Vestas, Mitsubishi, and Mitsui.

“This contract is a significant milestone for China Wind Systems, since we began manufacturing forged products at our new facility earlier this year. We are confident that as production increases at our Wuxi facility, we will attract more significant orders,” said Jianhua Wu, chairman and CEO of China Wind Systems. “We will continue our efforts to position China Wind Systems as a leading components supplier to the wind power industry.”
