Japanese wind projects developer Eurus Energy Holdings Corporation has announced the commissioning of two wind parks with a combined capacity of 127.5 MW.
The 47.5-MW Hamasato Wind Farm and the 80-MW Kawaminami Wind Farm are located in the northern Hokkaido region and feature a total of 33 Siemens Gamesa wind turbines each of 4.3-MW. The two wind farms were constructed by Dohoku Wind Farm LLC, an Eurus group company. The new wind parks are part of the Dohoku Wind Power Generation Project, which aims to install a total of 107 wind turbines in the region. All electricity generated by the facilities will be sold to local utility Hokkaido Electric Power Network Inc. The combined power generated by the two projects is equivalent to the electricity consumed by approximately 93,000 average households, and is expected to reduce CO2 emissions by 145,000 tonnes per year.
