China’s Highest Court to Hear Sinovel Case This Week, AMSC Says

American Superconductor Corp. (AMSC), a U.S. maker of wind-turbine components, said China’s Supreme People’s Court will hear a copyright infringement case Oct. 26 against Sinovel Wind Group Co.

AMSC is seeking $6 million in compensation from the Chinese turbine maker, the Devens, Massachusetts-based company said in an e-mailed statement today.

This is one of four cases AMSC is pursuing against Sinovel, seeking a total of more than $1.2 billion in damages for allegedly violating sales contracts and stealing its technology. Sinovel stopped accepting contracted shipments from AMSC in March 2011.
