Toshiba, Mitsui Complete 56MW Wind and Solar Plant in Japan

Sept. 30 (Bloomberg) — Toshiba Corp., Mitsui & Co. and
partners completed a power station in central Japan that
combines solar and wind power technologies.

The Aichi prefecture plant, with 50 megawatts of solar
capacity and 6 megawatts of wind, will start operations
tomorrow, the companies said in a statement today.

Six other companies are taking part in the project,
including Toray Industries Inc.
