Fukushima’s 7MW Floating Turbine almost There

Assembly works of the 7MW oil pressure drive-type wind turbine on the three-column semi-sub floater at Onahama port has been completed and delivery of the floater to testing area is going to start shortly as part of the second phase of the Fukushima Experimental Offshore Floating Wind Farm Project.

Installation of chains, anchors and undersea cables for the 7MW turbine at the testing area has also been completed. Delivery of the system from Onahama and mooring operation in the testing area is scheduled for June 30 and the turbine is expected to be operational in December.

For the 5MW downwind-type floating wind turbine, laying and burying of the dynamic cables at the testing area has been completed, while parts procurement and construction of the turbine is in progress.

In the experimental offshore floating wind farm project, sponsored by Japanese Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry, a consortium comprised of Marubeni (project integrator), the University of Tokyo (technical advisor), Mitsubishi, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Japan Marine United, Mitsui Engineering & Shipbuilding, Nippon Steel & Sumitomo Metal, Hitachi, Furukawa Electric, Shimizu, and Mizuho Information & Research, has been participating since March 2012.
