Baoding Tianwei Wind Power Blade Standardizes on PTC

  Baoding Tianwei Wind Power Blade Standardizes on PTC Pro/Engineer for Its
  Design Platform

    Dramatically Improves the Accuracy and Efficiency of Its Product Data

Business Wire

NEEDHAM, Mass. -- April 07, 2009

PTC (Nasdaq: PMTC), The Product Development Company®, today announced that
Baoding Tianwei Wind Power Blade Co., Ltd. (TWPB), a subsidiary of Baoding
Tianwei Baobian Electric Co., Ltd., has successfully deployed PTC®
Pro/ENGINEER® as its standard platform for fan blade design. TWPB develops,
manufactures and provides after-sale services for blades of in-grid wind power
units. It currently works with Denmark-based blade mold manufacturer SSP to
develop MW-level fan blades.

As the airfoil section of fan blade design is diversified and complex,
traditionally it took a long period of time to complete the 3D modeling for
fan blades. However, with the powerful surface design features and
associativity of Pro/ENGINEER, the system can automatically generate each
section according to relevant parameters, and update calculation modules and
3D modeling accordingly. In addition, by allowing different types of data
import, Pro/ENGINEER also supports seamless integration with TWPB’s analysis
software. With the software and service support from PTC and its channel
partner Beijing Link-on Technology Co., Ltd., TWPB has as a result improved
its product data accuracy and design efficiency.

“PTC’s 3D, parametric CAD software, Pro/ENGINEER has greatly reduced our
workload and shortened new product development time and cost. We are very
satisfied with the pre-sale and after sale services and training provided by
Beijing Link-on Technology,” said Nie Yongjun, Vice General Manager of Baoding
Tianwei Wind Power Blade Co., Ltd. “We look forward to working with PTC and
Beijing Link-on Technology to deploy additional PTC solid modeling
technologies and relevant solutions.”

The global energy shortage has brought unprecedented opportunities for the
development of new types of energy, and as a result, China's wind power
industry is expected to see tremendous growth in the next few years. In 2007,
the number of new wind power units globally increased 32.1%, amounting to the
capacity of 20.073 million kilowatts. In China, the number climbed by 121% to
2.96 million kilowatts and the total capacity reached 5.56 million kilowatts,
an increase of 114%, the highest growth rate in the world. The number of
Chinese wind power equipment manufacturers has increased from half a dozen to
more than 50 in the past five years. In addition, the Chinese government has
attached great importance to the issue with a number of energy-saving,
emission reduction and new energy policies.

“We are very pleased that TWPB has selected PTC's product, Pro/ENGINEER, as
its powerful design features will help TWPB design team to improve product 3D
modeling efficiencies, ensure product quality and reduce production time,”
said Sin Min Yap, director, product and market strategy, PTC. “PTC is
committed to help enterprises such as TWPB use Pro/ENGINEER to achieve their
product development objectives and maximize their ROI.”
