Menomonee Falls, Wis.-based Magnetek Inc. has received a follow-on production order for wind power inverters valued at $11 million. Magnetek's modular utility-scale wind power inverters regulate and transform DC power generated by wind turbines into utility-grade AC power, which is distributed to the power transmission grid. Magnetek's E-Force Wind Inverters are to be delivered to its customer beginning in December through November 2010.
‘We believe renewable energy provides growth opportunities for Magnetek,’ says Peter McCormick, Magnetek's CEO. ‘We look forward to fulfilling this order for our customer, as we continue to work on the development of additional advanced power conversion solutions for both the wind and solar markets.’
