Devens, Mass.-based American Superconductor Corp. (AMSC) has signed a contract with Beijing-based Sinovel Wind Corp. Ltd. worth more than $100 million for core electrical components to be utilized in Sinovel's SL3000 3 MW wind turbines.

Sinovel's SL3000 features a 300-foot rotor diameter and tower height. The company has erected several 3 MW turbines off the coast of Shanghai for the Shanghai Donghai Bridge Wind Farm, China's first offshore wind farm.

AMSC expects to begin shipping sets of core components under the new contract in March 2010 and to complete all shipments by the end of 2011.
