Japanese wind power developer, Electric Power Development Company (EPDC), has begun construction on three wind stations in Japan. With a combined capacity of 51.5 MW, all three projects will use Vestas turbines. Ten 1.75 MW units are being installed at Kumamoto, Kyushu and 11, 2 MW turbines will be installed for a project near Nagoya. Both are due to start production by February 2005. A further six Vestas 2 MW units are to be installed for a 12 MW project in Hokkaido, for completion by December 2005. EPDC has eight wind farms with a capacity of 144 MW either under construction or in the pipeline in Japan. This includes plans for a 50 MW development. If realised, it will be the biggest wind farm in Japan.
