News Release 19-077
The United States International Trade Commission (USITC) today determined that there is a reasonable indication that a U.S. industry is materially injured by reason of imports of utility scale wind towers from Canada, Indonesia, Korea, and Vietnam that are allegedly sold in the United States at less than fair value and subsidized by the governments of Canada, Indonesia, and Vietnam.
Chairman David S. Johanson and Commissioners Rhonda K. Schmidtlein and Jason E. Kearns voted in the affirmative. Commissioners Irving A. Williamson and Meredith M. Broadbent did not participate in these votes.
As a result of the Commission’s affirmative determinations, the U.S. Department of Commerce will continue with its antidumping and countervailing duty investigations concerning imports of this product from Canada, Indonesia, Korea, and Vietnam, with its preliminary countervailing duty determinations due on or about October 2, 2019, and its preliminary antidumping duty determinations due on or about December 16, 2019.
The Commission’s public report Utility Scale Wind Towers from Canada, Indonesia, Korea, and Vietnam (Inv. Nos. 701-TA-627-629 and 731-TA-1458-1461 (Preliminary), USITC Publication 4952, August 2019) will contain the views of the Commission and information developed during the investigations.
The report will be available after September 20, 2019; when available, it may be accessed on the USITC website at: https://www.usitc.gov/commission_publications_library. Read More →
