Ming Yang Wind Power
Making it as the first of its kind agreement, the China based Ming Yang Wind Power Group Ltd, in a recent cache has won a 150-MW order in India after which becomes the first Chinese turbine maker to receive approval to sell machines in Asia's second-biggest wind market. In the project the developer based in Maharashra will use 1.5 MW turbines, Chief Executive Officer, Ming Yang's India, Global Wind Power Ltd, Hiren Shah, said adding that the machine was approved for sale by the government-run Centre for Wind Energy Technology in October last year.

He said adding that the player is seeking to diversify beyond their home market. At least 88% of their sales in 2012 came from China, where wind installations contracted 42% in the first half of this year, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. In contrast, India is predicted to install 2,050 MW of wind capacity in 2013, surpassing the US to become the world's third biggest market. Global Wind, a venture between Ming Yang and billionaire Anil Ambani's Reliance Capital Ltd, expects to get Indian approval to sell a second 1.5 MW turbine around mid-2014. Ming Yang's newer machines are able to generate more power from lower wind speeds, making them attractive to Indian wind-farm developers who are increasingly choosing turbines based on their efficiency rather than price, he added.
