Marubeni Unit to Build Small Hydropower Station in Fukushima

A unit of Marubeni Corp. (8002) will build a 175-kilowatt hydropower station in Fukushima prefecture.

The plant will be operated by Mibugawa Electric Power Co., a wholly owned unit of the Japanese trading company, and will start running in April, Marubeni said in a statement today.

The project will be Mibugawa’s eighth small hydropower plant in Japan. The company plans to develop about 30 hydropower stations by 2020, according to the statement.
