[Updated article] The 5MW wind turbine mounted on a floating platform, dubbed Fukushima Hamakaze, was installed at the site off Fukushima Prefecture on 20 July. The turbine left Sumoto port on Awaji Island on 2 July, according to a marine notice issued by the Fukushima Forward consortium. It arrived in the testing area on 10 July and was then […]
The Fukushima Hamakaze construction, built for the 14MW Fukushima Forward floating wind farm demonstration project, was completed after a 5MW Hitachi downwind turbine was mounted on an advanced spar floater in the port of Sumoto, Japan. The construction is expected to be towed to the demo site off Fukushima in July. The 51-metre wide floater started its journey from […]
The advanced spar floating foundation built to support the 5MW Fukushima Hamakaze structure off Japan has recovered stability after it tilted while under tow in Osaka Bay last week. The advanced spar floater was en route from Hitachi-Zosen’s dockyard in Sakai to the Sumoto port when it tilted due to an uncontrolled water ingress during the planned […]
