C&F Green Energy Japan has installed its first wind turbine in Japans Fukushima Prefecture.

The 19.5kW wind turbine will provide a clean source of renewable energy to the area which was devastated by the 2011 earthquake, tsunami and nuclear meltdown.

It was this devastation that prompted the people of Fukushima to reassess their energy sources; leading to renewable energy being considered as the way forward. The Fukushima prefecture now has an official commitment to source 100% of its primary energy demands from various renewable energy sources by 2040.

C&F are working with and supporting local manufacturers by sourcing components such as the towers direct from Japan. C&F have also trained local installation companies in the operation and maintenance of its machines.
