AMSC to supply wind turbine electrical systems for $15mn

AMSC received a $15 million order for wind turbine electrical systems from Inox Wind Limited, a unit of India’s Inox Group.

This is the seventh order that AMSC has received from Inox since the company began volume production of its 2 MW wind turbines, which were licensed from AMSC in May 2009. A majority of shipments under the contract are expected to happen during fiscal year 2015.

AMSC’s ECS are an integrated, high-performance suite of power electronics systems that include the wind turbine power converter cabinet, internal power supply and various controls. They help control the power flow, regulate voltage and monitor system performance.
