Windtec, a subsidiary of American Superconductor Corp. (AMSC), will develop a portfolio of 2.5 MW wind turbines for Dongfang Steam Turbine Works Corp. (DTC), a wind turbine manufacturer headquartered in China.

"DTC has built a substantial presence in China's wind power market and is now looking to increase its market share through the production of higher power systems," says Wang Wei Min, DTC's vice general manager and chief engineer. "By working with an innovative organization like AMSC's Windtec, we can begin producing these units quickly and cost effectively."

In addition to development work, Windtec will provide project management during assembly and installation of the first prototype, the companies say. As is the case with its other licensing and development contracts, AMSC has a right of first refusal to sell all future 2.5 MW wind turbine electrical systems to DTC.
