Construction begins on Japan's largest wind farm

Japanese wind project developer Ecopower Co Ltd will start construction of the country's largest wind farm this month. The 40 NEG Micon 1.5 MW turbines will be installed on two sites, with 22 turbines at Rokkasho and 18 in Iwaya. Both will be on the Shimokita peninsula in Aomori, northern Japan. The plant is due to start production in December 2002. NEG Micon, which holds a market share of around 25% in Japan, also has orders this year for 20 wind turbines (13 MW) -- mostly smaller projects in various prefectures.
