BEIJING -- Mingyang Smart Energy Group will become the first Chinese player to supply turbines for an offshore wind farm in Japan as the cheaper equipment helps lower hurdles for the country's new renewable power projects.

Mingyang recently reached an agreement to provide three 3-megawatt turbines for a wind power facility off the coast of Nyuzen, a town in central Japan. The company will soon sign a formal contract with general contractor Shimizu Corp., and will seek third-party certification for its equipment, a source familiar with the matter said.
