A group led by Japanese wind developer Cosmo Eco Power has ordered GE Vernova turbines for the 90MW Abukama South wind farm in Japan’s Fukushima prefecture.
Cosmo is developing the 28-turbine project in its Abukuma South Wind Power joint venture with Nemoto Tsusho, Maruto and Tohoku Electric Power. Kandenko is EPC contractor on the project.
Steve Swift, chief commercial officer in GE Vernova’s onshore wind business, said: “We appreciate the confidence that Cosmo Eco Power has shown in our 3 MW class turbine line and value the continued opportunity to advance the government’s renewable energy goals with wind power.”
Sayuri Hashikawa, director and executive officer of business development at Cosmo Eco Power, said: “This project was planned to support the introduction of renewable energy, as one of the priority areas of the national project to rebuild the country following the Great East Japan Earthquake and the tsunami that occurred in 2011 with a goal to build a new industrial base. In implementing this project, we aim to coexist and prosper with the local community and key stakeholders, including GE Vernova by cooperating with local businesses in construction, operation and maintenance.”
