April 22 (Renewables Now) - Japan’s Eurus Energy Group said today it has held on Thursday a groundbreaking ceremony for a 27.35-MW wind project in Japan's Hokkaido Island.

The so-called Eurus Tokoro-Notoro Wind Farm will be located between the towns of Kitami and Abashiri. It is expected to be up and fully operational in April 2024.

Tokoro-Notoro will be comprised of seven wind turbines supplied by Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy SA (BME:SGRE), each of 4.3 MW. It will be capable of producing enough power to meet the annual consumption of about 20,000 homes, offsetting some 34,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions per year.

The wind park's output will be sold to local electricity provider Hokkaido Electric Power Network Inc, Eurus said.
