Cosmo Energy’s Eco Power Plans 18MW Wind Farm in Northern Japan

Eco Power Co., a Tokyo-based Japanese wind developer affiliated with Cosmo Energy Holdings Co., will build an 18-megawatt wind farm in the northern Japanese prefecture of Iwate.

The plant will start operating in April 2019, Cosmo Energy said in a statement Wednesday.

The project will cost about 6 billion yen ($58 million) to build and will use turbines by Hitachi Ltd., according to Eita Ushioda, a spokesman for Cosmo Energy.

Cosmo Energy Holdings and Cosmo Engineering Co. own about 89 percent of Eco Power, according to Ushioda.
