American Superconductor forms AMSC India to serve wind, grid markets

11 September 2009 - American Superconductor Corporation (AMSC) has formed AMSC India to serve India's rapidly growing wind energy and power grid markets with its power electronics and superconductor-based solutions.

With its regional head office in Delhi and a service office in Pune, it will provide local applications engineering, sales, business development, and field service support.

"India is beginning to tap into its renewable energy resources and is making significant investments to vastly improve the throughput and reliability of its power grid," said Greg Yurek, founder and chief executive officer of AMSC.

"Our advanced power electronics and superconductor solutions are well positioned to address these needs both in the near and long term. AMSC India has been formed to provide high-quality local technical support for our new wind power customers and build a strong foundation for future sales into India's broader renewable energy and power grid markets."

AMSC's first two wind turbine manufacturing customers in India are Ghodawat Energy Limited and Inox Wind Limited. Both licensed AMSC Windtec turbine designs within the past 18 months.

AMSC, which is the exclusive power electronic system supplier for all Ghodawat and Inox wind turbines, announced today that it has received initial orders for five wind turbine electrical systems from Ghodawat and three wind turbine electrical systems from Inox.

Ghodawat, based in Kolhapur in the state of Maharashtra, India, will use the electrical systems for its initial production of 1.65 MW wind turbines designed by AMSC Windtec. Ghodawat, in collaboration with AMSC Windtec and AMSC India, has successfully erected and tested its first reference 1.65 MW wind turbine.

Inox, located in Noida in the state of Uttar Pradesh, India, plans to begin volume production of 2 MW wind turbines designed by AMSC Windtec in 2010. Inox is in the process of collaborating with AMSC Windtec and AMSC India to erect its first reference wind turbine prior to initiation of volume production in 2010.
