    MY Completes Grid-connection of the First SCD Offshore Wind Turbine Prototype of 6.5MW Platform

    PR Newswire

    ZHONGSHAN, China, March 16, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- China Ming Yang Wind Power

    Group Limited ("Ming Yang" or "the Company") (NYSE: MY)today announced that

    its super compact drive ("SCD") offshore wind turbine prototype of 6.5MW

    platform, which is able to be expanded and developed to a series of wind

    turbine generators ("WTGs") with capacity ranging from 5.0MW to 7.0 MW, began

    commercial trial operation in Rudong, Jiangsu Province, China in March 2015.

    This cutting-edge SCD wind turbine prototype features a two-blade design with

    a light weight permanent magnet generator and is able to adapt to various

    extreme offshore weather conditions, offering high reliability at a lower

    weight to offshore wind farm operators, particularly in typhoon-prone regions.

    "We are proud to see that the world's first SCD offshore wind turbine

    prototype of6.5MW platform has been connected to the grid and put into trial

    operation," commented Mr. Chuanwei Zhang, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer

    of Ming Yang."Our unique model provides our customers with a cost-effective

    solution for their offshore wind farm projects in typhoon-prone coastal areas

    where extreme weather conditions prevail, for example the eastern and southern

    coast of China, potentially one of the world's largest offshore markets."

    Mr. Zhang continued, "Meanwhile, I am also pleased to announce that in

    response to our customers needsandto meet China's complex offshore

    conditions, Ming Yang is planning to develop an innovative three-blade SCD

    wind turbine model, specializing in catching low speed wind. We expect that we

    will be able to seize the huge market opportunities by providing a wider

    product mix as well as value-added services, as the PRC government continues

    to push for renewable energy solutions in an effort to combat air pollution.
