Multi-Millions Gone With The Wind in Massachusetts That Installed Known Stolen Technology

As a Massachusetts resident I feel sorry for our Northern neighbors burdened by our policies.

It's pretty bad when 60 Minutes finds interest in the renewables sector here.

Jan. 2016

Massachusetts' American Superconductor AMSC became the subject of CBS 60 minutes “The Great Brain Robbery” regarding the theft by China’s Sinovel of AMSC wind turbine technology.  This is an International industrial espionage thriller yet to be written.  AFTER the turbine technology was STOLEN by China, Massachusetts installed Sinovel wind turbines with full knowledge it was stolen.  And this stolen technology failed!;

AMSC would be the second MA green company involved in industrial espionage and that has prompted national security concerns.  MA A123 Systems is equally scandalous, and filed for bankruptcy, with more technology owned or stolen by foreign countries but paid for by U.S. citizens.

Following the money....former Energy Secretary Ian Bowles gifted to FloWind as FloWind Advisor-

Massachusetts former energy secretary was Ian Bowles who restructured the MA energy market SEVEN times with the help of his former Governor's Appointed Advisor First Wind CEO Gaynor.  And, Bowles left office to join First Wind as Director.   

The very powerful former energy secretary Bowles is Founding Chairman of the MassCEC that invests ratepayer surcharge dollars in green schemes. 

Let the Games Begin!

MassCEC (Bowles) granted FloDesign $3 million while Ian Bowles served as Advisor to FloDesign and as Executive Secretary of Energy and Environment and as Founding and Acting Chairman of the MassCEC under the Deval Patrick Administration. 

During 2010, Ian Bowles of MassCEC granted FloDesign $3 million, including a 5-year $700,000 forgivable loan, and $1.7 million from MassCEC’s Renewable Energy Trust (that is now called MassCEC). Flo was the beneficiary of about $11 million in state grants and loans. 


The term expired in 2015 for MassCEC grant/loan to FloDesign of 2010.  While, FloDesign changed their name to Ogin (of the Netherlands) in November of 2013.  MassCEC terms required “FloDesign” to create or retain 150 jobs in Massachusetts.  “… contingent on the company maintaining its corporate headquarters and primary R&D facility in Massachusetts, creating or retaining 150 jobs in the next three years (2013) and maintaining those jobs for an additional two years,(2015), according to the Patrick Administration. 


During November of 2013 FloDesign changed their name to Ogin. 

MassCEC then granted a share of $2.3 million grants to Ogin. 

Flo-Design CFO Matthew Commons held several positions at Enron.

Note that each of two "FLO" DUNS has been awarded exactly $8,325,400 and each are in two different Congressional Districts.  Please note the federal government DOE has not paid Dunn and Bradstreet to continue use of DUNS numbers according to the Wall Street Journal, thus the public federal stimulus tracking links below no longer operate.  I copied FloDesign Inc., and FloDesign Wind Turbine Corp awards information before this DUNS service interruption.:

So, during November of 2013 FloDesign changed their name to Ogin. And, MassCEC (Bowles) then granted "a share of" $2.3 million to Ogin. 


FloDesign Inc., and FlowDesign Wind Turbine Corp., Massachusetts Foreign Corporation(s) with a name change during November of 2013 to “Ogin Inc.” based in the Netherlands; and, New Dimension Energy Company, LLC (NDEC) a California Foreign Limited Liability Company (LLC) and subsidiary of Ogin, Inc. 

So, WE funded shrouded wind turbine intellectual property now owned by Montenegrin. 

While Ogin Intellectual Property is listed in the “Official Gazette of the Montenegrin Intellectual Property Office’ 2014/15.

Alphabiota Environmental Consulting, LLC (AEC) understands that New Dimension

Energy Company (NDEC, Project Applicant) is proposing the repower of wind energy

        FloWind Corp., a major wind plant operator based in San

Rafael, Calif., said in a statement that it has filed for

protection from creditors under Chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy

Code due to "difficulties in liquidating its wind turbine

inventories or repowering or selling its wind power plants

in a timely fashion."


        The company said it had accumulated an inventory of

components for the AWT-27 wind turbine (designed and

produced by a subsidiary, Advanced Wind Turbines, Inc.)

after receiving an order from customers in India, but that

the customers subsequently proved "unable to make required



        "Subsequent attempts to sell this inventory to

alternative buyers have been frustrated by the absence of

international trade financing competitive with the

concessionary financing and trade support offered by foreign

competitors," the company said, adding, "Approximately 20

AWT turbines are operating in India and two in China.  The

wind turbines are operating as warranted and are considered

reliable and cost-effective."


        FloWind said it expects to use the balance of the AWT

inventory to supply turbines for the 25-MW wind project

planned by the Conservation and Renewable Energy System

(CARES), a consortium of several public utilities, in



        The company said it has attempted to sell its Tehachapi

wind plant in recent months, but has been unable to finalize

a sale.


        It added, "Immediately prior to the Chapter 11 filing,

FloWind entered into a codevelopment arrangement with a

European turbine manufacturer and its construction partner

to fully develop its Altamont and Tehachapi wind power

plants.  This arrangement is expected to be finalized over

the next 18 months.


        "The repowering and sale of its existing California

wind power plants, with the aid and credibility of its

codevelopment partner, will allow FloWind to emerge as a

vital contributor to the international wind energy

Maine Center For Public Interest Reporting – Three Part Series: A CRITICAL LOOK AT MAINE’S WIND ACT


(excerpts) From Part 1 – On Maine’s Wind Law “Once the committee passed the wind energy bill on to the full House and Senate, lawmakers there didn’t even debate it. They passed it unanimously and with no discussion. House Majority Leader Hannah Pingree, a Democrat from North Haven, says legislators probably didn’t know how many turbines would be constructed in Maine if the law’s goals were met." . – Maine Center for Public Interest Reporting, August 2010 Part 2 – On Wind and Oil Yet using wind energy doesn’t lower dependence on imported foreign oil. That’s because the majority of imported oil in Maine is used for heating and transportation. And switching our dependence from foreign oil to Maine-produced electricity isn’t likely to happen very soon, says Bartlett. “Right now, people can’t switch to electric cars and heating – if they did, we’d be in trouble.” So was one of the fundamental premises of the task force false, or at least misleading?" Part 3 – On Wind-Required New Transmission Lines Finally, the building of enormous, high-voltage transmission lines that the regional electricity system operator says are required to move substantial amounts of wind power to markets south of Maine was never even discussed by the task force – an omission that Mills said will come to haunt the state.“If you try to put 2,500 or 3,000 megawatts in northern or eastern Maine – oh, my god, try to build the transmission!” said Mills. “It’s not just the towers, it’s the lines – that’s when I begin to think that the goal is a little farfetched.”
