The Anti-Dumping Commission of Australia (ADC) has initiated an investigation into alleged dumping of wind towers imported from Viet Nam.

The investigation follows an application lodged by Australian wind tower manufacturers Keppel Prince Engineering Pty Ltd and Ottoway Fabrication Pty Ltd.

The investigation will examine transactions that took place from January 1, 2015 to December 31, 2016.

The application alleges that goods were exported to Australia from Viet Nam at prices less than their normal value and that the dumping has caused material injury to the Australian industry.

ADC estimated a dumping margin on VN’s wind towers is 15.7 per cent and ADC may apply temporary anti-dumping duties but not earlier than 60 days since the initiation date of June 8, 2017.

A statement of essential facts will be placed on the public record by September 26, 2017 and interested parties have 20 days to response to this statement.

Prior to this, in 2014, Australia also had a dumping investigations on wind towers imported from China and Republic of Korea (RoK), with dumping duties on China’s exporters at 15 - 15.6 per cent and on RoK’s ones ranged from 17.2 to 18.8 per cent. — VNS
