American Superconductor Corporation (AMSC) has announced that it has received two additional orders for its D-VAR voltage control solution to meet power grid interconnection requirements for wind farms being constructed in the USA and Scotland.
AMSC will deliver one of the D-VAR systems to a 60MW wind farm being erected in the state of Wyoming, which will utilise wind energy systems manufactured by Suzlon. The other D-VAR system will be delivered to a 48MW wind farm being constructed in Scotland, which will utilize Nordex wind energy systems. Installation of the D-VAR systems is scheduled for early 2008. Both wind farms are scheduled for operation within the next 12 months.
