American Superconductor Corporation (AMSC) has announced that it has received an initial order for 17 sets of full wind turbine electrical systems from Hyundai Heavy Industries Co., Ltd (HHI).
HHI will use the electrical systems in 1.65MW doubly fed induction wind turbines it will be producing under a license from AMSC’s wholly owned AMSC Windtec subsidiary. HHI installed and commissioned its first reference 1.65MW wind turbine near its manufacturing facility in Ulsan, South Korea in June 2009.? The company expects it will soon receive Germanischer Lloyd certification, and it plans to begin shipping wind turbines to customers by the end of 2009.
