Supplying 4.2-117 onshore wind turbines for 79.8 MW

GE Renewable Energy is collaborating with Green Power Investment (GPI) as the supplier for the Fukaura Wind Farm in Fukaura Town, Nishi Tsugaru District, Aomori Prefecture, Japan. The project will feature 19 units of GE’s 4.2-117 onshore wind turbines. The deal also includes a ten-year full-service contract.

The Fukaura Wind Farm will operate the onshore wind turbines at 4.2 MW with a rotor diameter of 117m and a hub height of 110m. The installation of the wind turbines at the project site will commence in Q2 2023 and the turbines are targeted to be operational in 2024.

Japan’s onshore wind capacity stands at 5.3 GW. The Japanese Ministry of Economy, Trade, and Industry (METI) estimates a 15-16 GW growth potential for onshore wind by 2030.
