Magnetek receives major renewable energy orders

Over the past five weeks, electronic power products manufacturer Magnetek has received production orders valued at more than $8m (£5.1m) for its E-Force power inverters.

Magnetek’s modular utility-scale power inverters regulate and transform DC power generated by renewable sources into utility-grade AC power, which is distributed to the power transmission grid.

The orders received include inverters for wind turbines as well as an initial production order valued at nearly $1m for inverters to be used in the operation of variable-speed turbine generators for combined heat and power (CHP), a new market for the company. 

Order delivery is currently scheduled between April and July 2011.
