The French company will supply and supervise the installation of 29 of its ECO 74 wind turbines for Green Power Hamada Corporation.
The wind farm is estimated to be fully operational in 2016.
Alstom has adapted its turbine with seismic towers to improve availability in view of Japan’s seismic activity. In spite of strong typhoons that attack the country three to five times a year, Alstom says its previously installed wind turbines have not been affected
“This new contract is a true recognition of our technology and expertise and further demonstrates Alstom’s ability to adapt to local constraints,” says Alfonso Faubel, senior vice president for wind at Alstom.
The French group said the latest deal will bring its installed capacity in Japan to 100MW.
