Inox Wind Places Follow-on Order with American Superconductor

American Superconductor, an international power technologies firm, has secured a follow-on order worth $9 million from Inox Wind, part of Inox Group of Companies based in India, to deliver wind turbine electrical control systems. Inox’s initial order was in August 2010.

The wind turbine electrical control system acts as the brain of the wind turbine. It observes and controls the operations of the wind turbine and the transmission of zero-emission electricity to the power grid. Inox is utilizing the control systems for 2 MW doubly-fed induction wind turbines that it produces under an international AMSC Windtec license.

Inox Wind can produce 400 numbers of 2 MW wind turbines at its plant in Una, India. As of now about 33% of India’s population does not have electricity, the requirements for wind and other forms of energy will grow tremendously in future.

Indian Wind Energy Association reported that India is in the fifth place in the global wind power market with an installed capacity of 11,800 MW of wind power as of March 2010. IHS Emerging Energy Research predicts that India would increase its installed capacity to 24,000 MW by the end of 2015 and to 34,000 MW by the end of 2020.
