Dutch utility Eneco says Japan’s Mitsubishi Corporation (MC) is investing in its Eneco Luchterduinen offshore wind project at the start of a "long-term partnership" in the sector.

The Japanese group will take a 50% stake in the 129MW Eneco Luchterduinen project, 23km offshore between Noordwijk and Zandvoort.

MC will additionally take an interest in Eneco's already-operational 120MW Prinses Amalia wind farm, also in the Netherlands.

“Participation by MC in wind farms in Belgium and the UK fully- or jointly-owned by Eneco is up for future discussion,” says a statement from Eneco.
