Devens, Mass.-based American Superconductor Corp. has signed a multi-million dollar contract to provide wind turbine designs to China's XJ Group Corp. Under the terms of the contract, AMSC's wholly owned AMSC Windtec subsidiary will provide XJ Group with designs for its WT2000df, a 2 MW doubly fed induction wind turbine. In addition to the up-front fee, AMSC also expects to provide core electrical components for the 2 MW wind turbines manufactured by XJ Group.

While XJ Group initially expects to produce wind turbines for the Chinese market, the company has the right to sell the WT2000df worldwide. XJ Group plans to have its first prototypes installed and commissioned by the end of 2009 and expects to begin shipping wind turbines to customers in 2010.

"XJ Group will be a strong partner to address the growing needs for high power, high efficiency wind turbines in China and around the world," says Greg Yurek, founder and CEO of AMSC.
