JERA and Green Power Investment Corporation have commenced operational activities at the Ishikari Bay New Port Offshore Wind Farm in Japan, boasting a capacity of 112MW. Positioned 3 km off the coast of Hokkaido, the wind farm is equipped with 14 Siemens Gamesa turbines, each with an 8MW capacity.
The ownership of the Ishikari Bay New Port Offshore Wind Farm is held by the partners through the special purpose company Green Power Ishikari GK. Kajima Corporation managed onshore construction, while offshore construction was a collaboration between Shimizu Corporation and Nippon Steel Engineering.
The electricity generated will be supplied to the Hokkaido Electric Power Network (HEPN) after passing through a project transformer substation with a 100MW battery storage capacity, and then routed to HEPN’s Nishi Sapporo substation.
The successful completion of the project was made possible through extensive collaboration and understanding from local communities and government entities, including Hokkaido Prefecture, Ishikari City, and Otaru City, throughout the development and construction phases, as noted by JERA. In May 2023, Pattern Energy, headquartered in the United States, finalized an agreement with JERA and NTT Anode Energy Corporation for the joint acquisition of Green Power Investment Corporation.
