American Superconductor Corporation (AMSC) has announced that its wholly owned AMSC Windtec subsidiary has licensed its proprietary 2MW doubly-fed induction wind turbine design to Inox Wind Limited, part of India’s Inox Group of Companies (Inox).
The license provides Inox with the right to manufacture and sell the
wind turbines globally. Inox plans to begin series production of the
2MW wind turbines in 2010. In addition to providing licensed designs to
Inox, AMSC will help the company localize the supply of key wind
turbine components, establish its manufacturing line, and build and
test Inox’s first prototype wind turbines. AMSC will receive an upfront
license fee as well as royalty payments. AMSC also will provide the
electrical systems for the 2MW wind turbines manufactured by Inox.
