Offshore Wind Power Generation

Overview

In order to establish the technology suited to the harsh natural environment, such as typhoon and earthquake, we built the first offshore wind power plant in Japan, and has researched its safety and environment effects.

Research period

Aug.2009 - Mar.2017 (Commercial operation is in planning)

Main Results

The Demonstration Project World's First Offshore Wind Power Station in the Pacific

  1. Completion of Deign and Construction in sever natural conditions.
  2. Confirming the safety to breaking wave in typhoon and low pressure.
  3. Demonstrate the large wind energy near the coast of Japan based on Capacity Factor.
