Subsidies from Japan's New Energy Development Organisation have been awarded for two further wind farms of turbines from Lagerwey the Windmaster, both to consist of 28, 750 kW units for two 21 MW wind farms. One plant is for a site at Esashi town and these turbines, now being manufactured, are to be shipped in February. The second plant is for Horonobe in the northern island Hokkaido. Last month the final details were being settled for the order, though the units must also be shipped by the end of February to comply with subsidy regulations. Commissioning of both projects is scheduled for November 2001. Lagerwey is currently supplying six 750 kW turbines for a 4.5 MW wind farm in Kyoto prefecture if all goes according to plan. Confirmation of the order was due last month.
