Japan to Put Operation Restriction on Wind Project, Nikkei Says

Japan’s Ministry of Environment will put restrictions on the operation of the nation’s largest proposed wind project due to bird migration patterns in the region, the Nikkei reported without giving any attribution.

The ministry will approve a plan to build the 803.3 megawatt wind project spread over seven locations in the northern island of Hokkaido with the condition that operations are suspended during migration season, the Tokyo-based newspaper reported Saturday. The power stations will be operated by Eurus Energy Holdings Corp., with the goal of starting it up around 2022 or 2023, the Nikkei said.
