Wind Farm to Japan

A group of companies concluded a basic agreement with the Kitakyushu city office Thursday to lease a land lot for building wind power plants at a cost of some ¥3 billion (US$22.7 million), said Japan Wind Development Co., the consortium leader.

KITAKYUSHU, Japan – April 15, 2002 [SolarAccess.com] The group will build 10 wind power plants, each capable of generating 1,500 kilowatts of electricity, on a lot in Hibikinada in the city’s Wakamatsu Ward, the Tokyo-based venture business said. With the biggest wind power facility in western and southwestern Japan starting to operate in March next year, the consortium will sell 35 million kW, enough to power 10,000 households a year, to Kyushu Electric Power Co. annually. The project is expected to bring in annual sales of more than ¥350 million yen (US$2.6 million), Japan Wind Development said. The company has built wind plants in Hokkaido and Chiba prefectures already.
