JERA, GPI bring largest commercial wind farm in Japan online

by Kali Persall

JERA and Green Power Investment Corp. (GPI) have commenced operations at the Ishikari Bay New Port Offshore Wind Farm — the largest commercial wind farm in Japan — which they own through Green Power Ishikari GK, a special-purpose corporation.

Located in Hokkaido’s Ishikari Bay New Port, the wind farm has a total output of 112,000 kilowatts with 14 installed wind turbines manufactured by Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy.

Onshore construction was carried out by Kajima Corp. and offshore construction by a joint venture between Shimizu Corp. and Nippon Steel Engineering Co.

All electricity generated will be supplied to Hokkaido Electric Power Network (HEPN) for a period of 20 years after being routed through a project transformer substation with 180,000 kilowatt hours of battery storage capacity, and then through HEPN’s Nishi Sapporo Substation.
