for full wind turbine electrical control systems from China’s largest wind turbine manufacturer, Beijing-

based Sinovel Wind Group Co., Ltd. (Sinovel). The

systems will be deployed in Sinovel’s first 5 megawatt (MW) doubly fed induction wind turbines. AMSC expects to deliver the electrical control systems to Si- novel in the second half of calendar year 2010. Sino- vel is China’s largest wind turbine manufacturer and ranks among the top five wind turbine manufacturers in the world. In 2009, the company shipped appro- ximately 2,400 1.5 MW wind turbines and approxi- mately 100 3 MW wind turbines, or approximately 3,900 MW of wind power equipment. Each of these wind turbines contained core electrical components from AMSC.

Sinovel expects to have its first 5 MW wind turbines (branded the SL5000) erected within the next 12 months and to commence full production of the wind turbines in 2011. Sinovel’s SL5000 will be China’s largest and most powerful domestically pro- duced wind energy system.
