Remote island of Ukujima in line for 100 MW plant

The remote Japanese island of Ukujima off the south-western island of Kyushu is in line as the location for a 100 MW wind farm made up of 50 turbines to supply power to Kyushu Electric Power Co. The project's reported developer, Japan Wind Development (JWD), declines to comment on reports that the wind farm is expected to cost about JPY 26 billion ($266 million) and that operation is due to begin in 2011. JWD is the third largest wind farm operator in Japan with an installed base of about 200 MW, representing just over 10% of Japan's wind power capacity. JWD has plans to increase its installed capacity in Japan to more than 800 MW by March 2011.
