Tomen Power Holdings Corporation (TPHC) is to build four more wind farms, with a combined capacity of 107 MW, in Japan. They are the Odanosawa Wind Farm (13 MW) in Aomori, Kamaishi Wind Farm (42.9 MW) in Iwate, Nishime Wind Farm (30 MW) in Akita, and Kihoku Wind Farm (20.8 MW) in Kagoshima. All are to be on-line in November 2004, except Kihoku Wind Farm, which is scheduled for start-up in February 2004. All will use Vestas 1.7 MW turbines. TPHC has four wind farms already in operation and one under construction which will bring its wind power capacity up to 78 MW -- the wind farms planned for operation in 2004 will bring this to 185 MW.
