Magnetek wins wind-power inverter contract

Magnetek, a provider of digital power and motion control systems, has announced that it has received a production order for its E-Force wind-power inverters valued at approximately $6m (£4m).

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.

The order is scheduled for delivery between September and December 2010.
