American Superconductor Corp. received an order worth more than $10 million for wind turbine electrical control systems from South Korea’s Doosan Heavy Industries & Construction Co. Ltd.
The systems will be used in Doosan’s onshore and offshore 3 MW full conversion wind turbines. AMSC will ship thesystems to Doosan between the middle of calendar year 2011 and the middle of calendar year 2012.
Doosan is the seventh customer to place a volume production order for wind turbine electrical control systems or components with AMSC over the past 12 months. Doosan’s 3 MW pilot model has been in operation at Korea’s Jeju Island since October 2009.
In November 2010, South Korea announced a $10.5 billion project to develop 2.5 GW of offshore wind resources.
