Japanese trading house Marubeni Corp has finalised its plan to construct a 26 MW wind farm in the southern Kagoshima prefecture. The project will use 20 Nordex 1.3 MW turbines and will be built in two phases. Construction of the first phase started in Nejime last month and is expected to go on-line in March 2003. The second part of the wind plant will be in neighbouring Sata. Marubeni is hoping to sell the output to Kyushu Electric Power Co, which is expected to issue its yearly tender for wind energy in February. If Marubeni is successful in its bid for the supply contract, the wind plant will begin operation in March 2004. It will be managed and run by Minami Kyushu Wind Power Co.
