No. 150: Japanese wind generation technology goes to Norway (September 1, 2010)

Eurus Energy, Japan’s leading wind generation company and a subsidiary of Tokyo Electric Power, decided to develop a large-scale wind-power station in Norway to make the best use of winds of 8 meters per second on average. The station is scheduled to have a generation capacity of 60,000 Kw and start operation next fall. The construction cost is about 15 billion yen, third of which is the subsidy from the Norwegian government. The company will install 26 generators from Siemens AG, and each generator has a generation capacity of 2,300 Kw. The local company of Eurus will hold 66% of the right and take care of the operation of the station. Eurus is in the middle of survey on the possibility to construct a wind-power station in other three places in Norway, and it plans to expand the business in North Europe. Generated electricity will be sold to the European market through the intermediary of distributors.
