American Superconductor Corporation (AMSC), an electricity solutions company, has announced it has received a follow-on order for its proprietary PowerModule-based wind turbine generator control systems for 150 wind turbines from Windtec Systemtechnik GmbH (Windtec).
Windtec is a supplier of large wind turbine components and system technology, based in Klagenfurt, Austria. The PowerModule-based control systems will be utilized in the electrical equipment of wind turbine generators, each rated at 1.5MW, which Windtec plans to ship to China in 2006. AMSC expects to ship the PowerModule PM1000 power converters, which manage and stabilize electricity produced by wind turbine generators, to Windtec by the end of 2006.
