SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Scope.— For purposes of these investigations, Commerce has defined the subject merchandise as certain wind towers, whether or not tapered, and sections thereof. Certain wind towers support the nacelle and rotor blades in a wind turbine with a minimum rated electrical power generation capacity in excess of 100 kilowatts and with a minimum height of 50 meters measured from the base of the tower to the bottom of the nacelle (i.e., where the top of the tower and nacelle are joined) when fully assembled. A wind tower section consists of, at a minimum, multiple steel plates rolled into cylindrical or conical shapes and welded together (or otherwise attached) to form a steel shell, regardless of coating, end-finish, painting, treatment, or method of manufacture, and with or without flanges, doors, or internal or external components (e.g., flooring/ decking, ladders, lifts, electrical buss boxes, electrical cabling, conduit, cable harness for nacelle generator, interior lighting, tool and storage lockers) attached to the wind tower section. Several wind tower sections are normally required to form a completed wind tower. Wind towers and sections thereof are included within the scope whether or not they are joined with nonsubject merchandise, such as nacelles or rotor blades, and whether or not they have internal or external components attached to the subject merchandise. Specifically excluded from the scope are nacelles and rotor blades, regardless of whether they are attached to the wind tower. Also excluded are any internal or external components which are not attached to the wind towers or sections thereof, unless those components are shipped with the tower sections. Merchandise covered by these orders is currently classified in the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) under subheading 7308.20.0020 or 8502.31.0000. Wind towers of iron or steel are classified under HTSUS E:\FR\FM\16APN1.SGM 16APN1

reason of imports of silicon metal, provided for in subheadings 
2804.69.10 and 2804.69.50 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the 
United States, from Bosnia and Herzegovina and from Iceland, that have 
been found by the U.S. Department of Commerce (``Commerce'') to be sold 
in the United States at less than fair value (``LTFV''), and from 
Kazakhstan, that have been found by Commerce to be subsidized by the 
Government of Kazakhstan.\2\

    \1\ The record is defined in Sec.  207.2(f) of the Commission's 
Rules of Practice and Procedure (19 CFR 207.2(f)).

undermine seriously the remedial effect of the antidumping duty 
order on silicon metal from Iceland.
