Japanese wind projects developer, Eurus Energy Holdings Corp, announced the commencement of commercial operations at the 42-MW Kabaoka Wind Farm in Hokkaido. Situated in the municipality of Wakkana, this wind park marks the fourth facility to be commissioned as part of the larger Dohoku Wind Power Generation Project. Eurus Energy intends to deploy a total of 107 wind turbines across six sites in northern Hokkaido.
The newly operational facility boasts ten wind turbines supplied by GE Vernova, each with a 4.2-MW capacity. Collectively, these turbines have the capability to generate sufficient power to meet the electricity consumption needs of approximately 31,000 average households.
Highlighting the regional collaboration, Japanese utility Hokkaido Electric Power Network Inc stands as the exclusive purchaser of the entire wind park's output, as indicated by Eurus Energy.
This milestone signifies progress in Japan's renewable energy landscape, with Eurus Energy contributing to the country's clean energy goals through the development and operation of the Kabaoka Wind Farm.
