The largest onshore wind farm has been launched in Japan. The generated energy will go to approx. 90 thousand customers. The power plant was built on the northern coast of the island of Honshu. It covers a distance of over 12 km and is consists of 38 General Electric turbines with a unit capacity of 3.2 MW. Construction took 2.5 years. So far, the largest farm in Japan was the Aoyama Plateau with a capacity of 95 MW.
Now this title has taken over the Tsugaru project, which recently started the commercial electricity production. The main contractor for the wind farm was the American company Pattern Energy. The advisory Mott MacDonald cooperated with the creators. It is a project with a social significance, because of about 90 thousand households, power supplies with energy from a wind farm.
