AMSC begins system work for South Korean 5.5-megawatt wind turbinesJanuary 25, 2018
Energy grid and planning company AMSC of Devens has begun work on an electrical control system for a wind turbine manufacturer helping to build an offshore wind project in South Korea.
The company in November began working with South Korea's Doosan Heavy Industries and Construction on the development of an electrical control system for 5.5-megawatt wind turbines slated for a 2.5-gigawatt offshore wind project in South Korea.
Per the agreement, AMSC is the exclusive supplier of electrical control system's for Doosan's turbines.
The project is being developed by state-owned Korean Offshore Wind Power.
"Doosan's investment in AMSC's wind turbine design and proprietary ECS aligns with South Korea's commitment to renewable energy utilizing offshore wind power," said Daniel McGahn, president and CEO of AMSC.
