Sumitomo Corp. Launches Wind Power Generation Project in Kashima.

Tokyo, Japan, Oct 18, 2005 - (JCNN) - Sumitomo Corporation will engage in a wind power generation project in Kashima, Ibaraki Prefecture, under the sponsorship of the Agency for Natural Resources and Energy, the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry.

The project will construct 10 turbines, each with a power generation capacity of 2,000kW, the largest in Japan, will be built in the city's industrial complex. The entire electricity generated by the turbines, which will amount to 42 million kW annually, will be sold to Tokyo Electric Power.

Sumitomo signed a full turnkey contract with Kashima Corporation, in which Kashima will procure, install and test wind turbines, which are supplied by Spanish wind turbine manufacturer Gamesa through its Japan distributor Toshiba Plant Systems.

Sumitomo's wholly-owned subsidiary, Summit Wind Power Kashima, started construction of the power plant in October, with commercial operation slated to begin in February 2007.
