MY Completes Grid-connection of the First SCD Offshore Wind Turbine Prototype of 6.5MW Platform
ZHONGSHAN, China, March 16, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- China Ming Yang Wind Power
Group Limited ("Ming Yang" or "the Company") (NYSE: MY)today announced that
its super compact drive ("SCD") offshore wind turbine prototype of 6.5MW
platform, which is able to be expanded and developed to a series of wind
turbine generators ("WTGs") with capacity ranging from 5.0MW to 7.0 MW, began
commercial trial operation in Rudong, Jiangsu Province, China in March 2015.
This cutting-edge SCD wind turbine prototype features a two-blade design with
a light weight permanent magnet generator and is able to adapt to various
extreme offshore weather conditions, offering high reliability at a lower
weight to offshore wind farm operators, particularly in typhoon-prone regions.
"We are proud to see that the world's first SCD offshore wind turbine
prototype of6.5MW platform has been connected to the grid and put into trial
operation," commented Mr. Chuanwei Zhang, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer
of Ming Yang."Our unique model provides our customers with a cost-effective
solution for their offshore wind farm projects in typhoon-prone coastal areas
where extreme weather conditions prevail, for example the eastern and southern
coast of China, potentially one of the world's largest offshore markets."
Mr. Zhang continued, "Meanwhile, I am also pleased to announce that in
response to our customers needsandto meet China's complex offshore
conditions, Ming Yang is planning to develop an innovative three-blade SCD
wind turbine model, specializing in catching low speed wind. We expect that we
will be able to seize the huge market opportunities by providing a wider
product mix as well as value-added services, as the PRC government continues
to push for renewable energy solutions in an effort to combat air pollution.
