    AMSC Receives $15 Million Follow-On Order From Inox Wind

    AMSC Receives $15 Million Follow-On Order From Inox Wind
    DEVENS, Mass., Aug. 21, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- AMSC (Nasdaq:AMSC), a global solutions provider serving wind and power grid industry leaders, today announced that it has received a $15 million order for wind turbine electrical control systems (ECS) from Inox Wind Limited, part of India's Inox Group of Companies. The Company expects the majority of shipments under this contract to occur during fiscal year 2015. This is the seventh order that AMSC has received from Inox since the company began volume production of its 2 megawatt (MW) wind turbines, which were licensed from AMSC in May 2009.

    "Together with AMSC's wind turbine design expertise and smart electrical control systems, Inox is delivering wind turbines with some of the highest availability, reliably and power in India," said Devansh Jain, director of Inox Wind Limited. "We have been successful in growing our business and taking market share in India as we continue to work towards our goal of being the preferred wind solutions provider to independent power producers, utilities, and large corporations."

    According to Bloomberg New Energy Finance (BNEF), India has more than 20 gigawatts (GW) of installed wind capacity. The government recently restored a tax incentive that benefits the wind industry. BNEF expects this incentive to result in wind installations of 2.6 GW in 2014, which would be a three year high for the country. Wind installations are expected to increase steadily to 3.5 GW of installations in 2016.

    "The effects of this most recent order from Inox are to extend our existing backlog and provide us greater visibility into fiscal 2015 revenues," said Daniel P. McGahn, President and CEO, AMSC. "Inox continues to execute on its ambitious growth plan and its planned IPO later this year is expected to provide the capital needed to continue on its path of being a major player in the Indian wind market."

    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. Together, these systems serve as the "brains" of the wind turbine and enable reliable, high-performance operation by controlling power flows, regulating voltage, monitoring system performance, controlling the pitch of the wind turbine blades and the yaw of the turbines to maximize efficiency.

    AMSC reiterates its full year fiscal 2014 expectation of flat to slightly down revenues as compared to fiscal 2013.

  • India on pace to run an energy deficit, EIA finds
    by Daniel J. Graeber
    Washington (UPI) Aug 14, 2013

    Trilateral European talks to focus on energy security
    Brussels (UPI) Aug 15, 2013 - European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso said future trilateral talks with Kiev and Moscow would focus on energy and national security issues.
    Barroso said he spoke by phone with Russian President Vladimir Putin to discuss the overall context of the situation in Ukraine.

    Ukraine and Russia have historic differences over natural gas. Russian energy company Gazprom in 2006 and 2009 cut gas supplies through Ukraine, jeopardizing downstream supplies to Europe, in response to contractual woes. That problem was exacerbated when in late 2013 Ukraine, a former Soviet republic, started tilting toward the European Union through an association agreement.

    "It was agreed to hold consultations between the presidents of Russia, Ukraine and the European Commission on the issues related with the implementation of the association agreement as well as on the supply of gas, in parallel with the efforts to stabilize the political and security situation," Barroso's office said in a Thursday statement.

    Russia is Europe's top natural gas supplier and the bulk of those supplies run through Ukraine's pipeline system, which was built in the Soviet era.

    Barroso's office offered no time frame for the talks. Russia has suggested a September date.

    India ranks among the top energy consumers in the world, with demand increasing at a double-digit rate, analysis from the U.S. Energy Department found.

    The Energy Information Administration, a division within the Energy Department, said economic growth and modernization in India is leading to increased demand for energy.

    "India's dependence on imported fossil fuels rose to 38 percent in 2012, despite the country having significant domestic fossil fuel resources," EIA said in a Thursday brief.

    The government in April said it expected natural gas demand to more than double by the beginning of the next decade.

    According to the terms of a five-year energy plan, the Indian government has said it wants to add at least one transnational pipeline to the midstream sector from either Iran, Oman or Central Asia.

    "Because India has not been able to produce an adequate supply of domestic natural gas and has been unable to create sufficient natural gas pipeline infrastructure on a national level, it increasingly relies on imported LNG to meet domestic demand," EIA said.

    The administration said that, as of 2012, LNG imports accounted for 29 percent of its annual consumption of 2.1 trillion cubic feet of gas.

    Companies include: American Superconductor Corporation (AMSC) and many more

    In the following excerpt from the Alternative Energy & Utilities Report, the President and CEO of American Superconductor Corporation (AMSC) discusses company strategy and the outlook for this vital industry:

    TWST: When we talked back in 2012, India was really the key market for you. Is that still the case, and which other geographic regions are you focusing on at this point?

    Mr. McGahn: We're starting to see the fulfillment of the vision of a couple of years ago. We've seen INOX go from a prototype at that point to more than 10% market share. They are a top-tier player, and they continue to gain market share. We have been able to deliver with INOX a very nice business in India that has really good prospects for growth.

    The Indian market is predicted to grow from approximately 2,000 megawatts a year to something approaching 4,000 megawatts a year between now and end of the decade. So there is growth in the market, and through innovative technology, we're enabling INOX to take additional market share. Our wind business really starts in India. We see the Chinese market as an additional opportunity for us as well as the Korean offshore market as additional opportunity for the wind market.

    On the grid side, our markets have been more in North America, the U.K. and Australia. We've talked in recent conference calls about Australia and policies there. In addition, we are looking to expand the grid business's regional reach to include Southern Africa and Eastern Europe, both of which we've gotten first wins. We have also been exploring the Middle East as well as South America. We continue to expand our geographic footprint and the markets in which we participate.

    I've been very excited and pleased with the two new product offerings. These two new product offerings however are really focused first and foremost on the U.S. markets. The desire is to deploy Resilient Electric Grid in the U.S. and then be able to open up additional markets in the future. Additionally, the desire is to deploy the ship protection systems with the U.S. Navy and then look to be able to sell to allied navies in the future.

    Low wind speed turbines are expected to open up new markets in regions that are already saturated with wind farms, such as southern Germany and parts of the United States and emerging markets such as the Middle East and Africa. India has a large number of sites with low-wind resources. Additionally, turbines designed for low wind speed can also be ideally located close to population centers. In China, low wind speed turbines near urban centers can reduce the bottlenecks on the transmission system that can be caused by the long-distance transmission of electricity.

    "We believe that AMSC's new low wind speed turbine makes it possible to achieve a low cost of energy at the low wind speed sites that were previously inaccessible or not economically compelling. The new low-wind speed design is expected to lower cost of energy by as much as 12% compared to previous AMSC designs, increasing its competitiveness with traditional fossil fuels," said Daniel P. McGahn, CEO, AMSC.

    This new 2MW turbine design with a 113 meter rotor is expected to deliver nearly 20% more energy than AMSC's 2MW turbine design 93 meter rotor. The turbine design is available for all climate conditions and various hub heights. It is also available with doubly-fed and full conversion drive train architectures as well as with the proven and certified AMSC grid support solutions such as low voltage ride-through capability and wtWPC(TM) wind park controller for grid integration, both of which enable superior power quality and reactive power support. AMSC is an industry leader in grid interconnection, VAR compensation and voltage control.

    AMSC designs wind turbines from 2MW and higher. The new 2MW low wind speed turbine design benefits from the superior supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) and wind park solutions which enable the integration of wind turbines into existing wind farms or the upgrade of existing installations with the latest technology.

    Traders should now look for long-biased trades in AMSC if it manages to break out above its 200-day moving average of $1.70 a share to some more near-term overhead resistance at $1.78 a share with high volume. Look for a sustained move or close above those levels with volume that registers near or above its three-month average volume of 763,864 shares. If that breakout materializes soon, then AMSC will set up to re-test or possibly take out its next major overhead resistance levels at $2.20 to around $2.40, or even $2.68 a share.
