July 1 (Renewables Now) - The Dutch subsidiary of Japan’s Eurus Energy Holdings Corporation announced today that a 21-MW wind park in South Holland has initiated commercial operation.
The so-called Windpark Spui facility is located in the municipality of Hoeksche Waard and comprises five 4.2-MW Enercon E-126 EP4 wind turbines. Yard Energy, which is a minority shareholder in the project, managed the construction process. Enercon, in turn, served as the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contractor.
Local utility Eneco is buying the power generated by the wind park.
Tokyo-based Eurus Energy is a joint venture between Japanese trader Toyota Tsusho Corporation (TYO:8015) and utility Tokyo Electric Power Company Holdings Inc (TYO:9501). With Windpark Spui, the renewable energy projects developer has now achieved 1,020 MW of total wind power capacity in Europe. Globally, it has over 2.8 GW of wind and solar parks.
“We will continue to expand our European project portfolio and contribute to further progress in Europe’s energy transition,” said Tetsuya Suwabe, Managing Director of Eurus Energy Europe.
