Wind turbines are installed in the waters near the coast of Ibaraki Prefecture and produce up to 159.6 megawatts. This is enough renewable energy to supply 70,000 households annually. The start date of the project has not yet been decided.
The 680-hectare wind farm, which will be built near the coast 1.6 kilometers from Kashima Port, is also funded by the Ibaraki-based wind farm and Bena Energy Holdings, a renewable energy company in Singapore. ..
In a press release, Tokyo Gas President Takashi Uchida said, “We aim to lead the growth of renewable energy that contributes to the realization of a sustainable society.”
