Invenergy’s Japanese On Shore Energy Plant Starts Production

Invenergy Wind LLC has achieved a significant milestone by commencing the commercial operation of its inaugural onshore wind power facility, the Rusutsu Wind Power Plant, on March 14, 2024.

Situated in Rusutsu Village, Abuta District, approximately 60 km southwest of Sapporo, Hokkaido, the Rusutsu Wind Power Plant operates at an altitude of 800 m.

Despite facing challenging geographical and meteorological conditions, including heavy snowfall, the project has successfully maximized the region’s renewable energy generation capacity. With a total output of 63 MW, the plant comprises 15 cutting-edge, large-scale wind turbines manufactured by GE Vernova in the United States, each boasting an output of 4.2 MW.

This initiative is expected to curtail carbon emissions by 64,000 tpy while supplying electricity to approximately 35,000 households in Hokkaido.

Masayuki Oya, Japan General Manager of Invenergy Wind LLC, expressed pride in the company’s achievement, stating, “We are proud that Invenergy has begun commercial operation of the Rusutsu Wind Power Plant as its first wind power project in the Japanese market.

We would like to thank our partner companies for their understanding and cooperation, which made it possible to complete the project. We will continue to work with the communities in the development area to provide more clean energy generated from wind power. We will work hard to make it possible.”

Having established a presence in Japan for over a decade, primarily focusing on the development of a solar power project portfolio, Invenergy has now ventured into onshore wind power with the Rusutsu Wind Farm.

This expansion underscores the company’s commitment to supporting Japan’s clean energy objectives. In 2023, Invenergy reinforced its domestic leadership team by appointing Masayuki Oya to spearhead its Japan operations and cultivate a pipeline of future wind projects.
