Eurus begins 30 MW Japan wind farm reconstruction

The power plant has been operating for almost 20 years since November 2004.

Eurus Energy Nishime started the reconstruction of its 30-megawatt (MW) wind farm in Akita Prefecture and is expected to start commercial operations in February 2026.

In a statement, Eurus Energy said the Eurus Nishime Wind Farm started operations in November 2004 and stopped operations in March 2023 in preparation for the complete reconstruction.

The facility’s 15 wind turbines with a capacity of 2 MW each will be replaced with seven wind turbines with a capacity of 4.3 MW each which is one of the largest models in Japan.

Once completed, the electricity produced will still be sold to the Tohoku Electric Power Network Co., Inc. which could provide power to around 22,000 average households annually.

The project will also reduce carbon dioxide emissions by around 31,000 tonnes every year.
