Partial transfer of the shares of two wind farms in the Netherlands



As of November 16, 2021, Eurus Energy Group has completed a partial transfer of its shares in two wind farms operating in the province of Groningen, the Netherlands, Windpark Mauve and Windpark Mondriaan, to Groningen Seaports NV.


Groningen Seaports is a public enterprise that manages and operates the Ports of Delfzijl and Eemshaven, as well as adjacent industrial estates. We will continue to manage the operation of the two wind farms, both of which are located near the Port of Delfzijl. Furthermore, Eurus and Groningen Seaports have entered into a long-term collaboration to develop renewable energy projects in the region, including new businesses such as the production of green hydrogen.


Groningen Seaports CEO Cas König is proud of the collaboration: “Eurus is a major player in sustainable energy worldwide. It opens doors to new markets and collaborations. We are pleased that such a large company endorses the importance of the northern seaports and sees opportunities in our area.”


Koji Tsuchimoto, Managing Director Eurus Energy Europe, sees this as an important step: “With Groningen Seaports as our partner, we will redouble our commitment to the responsible operation of Mauve and Mondriaan wind farms, as well as further expansion of sustainable energy business in Groningen.”


Aiming to realize our corporate philosophy of “Helping to Preserve the Global Environment by Disseminating and Expanding Clean Energy Technologies” and to contribute to the creation of a sustainable economy and society, Eurus is accelerating our efforts to create new business opportunities besides the power generation business.

Construction of Photovoltaic Power Plant in Chile

By Uncategorized

Eurus Energy Group has begun its construction of 10 Photovoltaic Power Plants in Chile, with total power output of approximately 68MW AC or 80MW DC.

All power plants are planned to be built within a range of 50 to 400 km from Santiago, the capital of Chile, and will be promoted based on PMGD* model, a small-scale distributed generation support system. The construction will start sequentially from June 2021, with all projects scheduled to start commercial operation in 2022.

Eurus Energy Group has operated 2 Photovoltaic Power Plants in Chile since 2017, and when these new projects are completed, the total power output of Eurus-owned power plants in Chile will reach 86MW AC (approximately 100MW DC).

Chile has a governmental goal of completing decarbonization by 2050, and is actively introducing renewable energy. Furthermore, Chile has one of the highest amounts of solar radiation in the world.

We are looking forward to helping realize the expansion of renewable energy in Chile.

*PMGD (Pequeños Medios de Generación Distribuída): Designed for smaller, distributed generation projects.

Amsterdam and Amersfoort, the Netherlands – 1 October 2019
Eurus Energy Group (“Eurus”), a leading Japanese renewable energy company, and YARD ENERGY Group (“YARD”), a Dutch-based developer of wind energy projects, jointly announced today that they have achieved financial close for the construction of Windpark Mauve, Windpark Mondriaan and Windpark Vermeer, with a combined capacity of 155 MW, in the province of Groningen in the Netherlands. Eurus acquired the projects from YARD prior to financial close. YARD will remain as a minority shareholder in the projects.
Windpark Mauve and Windpark Mondriaan will be built near the Port of Delfzijl and will consist respectively of seven and nine wind turbines. Both projects will be financed by Rabobank and Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Corporation. Windpark Vermeer, consisting of 20 wind turbines, will be located approximately 20 km to the south of the two other wind farms, and will also be financed by the two banks, together with ABN AMRO Bank and BNG Bank. Eneco will offtake the renewable electricity from all three wind farms, in an amount equivalent to the annual consumption of approximately 200,000 households.
The three wind farms will bring the total wind capacity of Eurus in the Netherlands to 303 MW by 2021, when all three wind farms are expected to start operation. Hidenori Mitsuoka, Managing Director of Eurus Energy Europe, stated: “Thanks to the successful partnership with YARD ENERGY, our portfolio in the Netherlands will soon become our second largest in Europe after Spain. We hope to grow our Dutch business further and thus contribute to achieving the EU target of 40% greenhouse gas reduction by 2030.” YARD has been working on the development of the three wind farms since 2014, and will also manage their construction. Kevin Dijkers, CEO of YARD, commented: “Reaching financial close of these three wind farms again proves that entering into a strategic partnership with Eurus Energy was the right decision. Working together with our reliable partner, we were able to accelerate our development process and reach financial close earlier than anticipated. The three projects significantly contribute to the Dutch targets for renewable energy, and we are very proud of this result”.
