Sinovel is expected to begin installing its 5MW wind turbine prototypes within the next year with American Superconductor (AMSC) supplying the electrical guts of  the system.  AMSC announced it has received an initial order and expects to ship it out in the second half of this year. 

Sinovel is China’s largest wind turbine manufacturer, shipping out 2400 1.5MW and 100 3MW turbines last year.  It’s next generation 5MW turbine (the SL5000) is expected to go into full production in 2011 if all goes according to plan and would be China’s most powerful wind turbine.

AMSC CEO Greg Yurek commented: “Sinovel is a juggernaut in the wind industry with tremendous experience manufacturing turbines with the most advanced technology.  Building on the strength of the company’s 1.5 MW and 3 MW platforms, the production of the higher power-rated SL5000 systems positions Sinovel as a technology leader globally.”
