Vestech Japan Corp, the Japanese agent of Danish wind turbine maker Vestas, has won two orders for a total of 24 Vestas V66-1.65 MW wind turbines. Fifteen have been bought by semi-public Electric Power Development Co (EPDC) for a 24 MW wind farm near Nikaho town in Akita prefecture in northern Japan, while Marubeni Trading Corp is using the remaining nine units for a 15 MW wind farm, called Sarakitomanaie Wind Farm, near Wakkanai in the main northern island Hokkaido. The turbines for both projects will be installed from April and the wind farms will be on-line by November 2001. One of the shareholders in Vestech Japan Corp, Matsuo Bridge Co, has the capacity to make the turbine towers in Japan, but it has been decided that all components will be shipped from Denmark.
