Japan’s largest power company Tokyo Electric Power Company Holdings, Inc. (TEPCO) and Ørsted have signed a memorandum of understanding to work jointly on offshore wind projects. TEPCO and Ørsted will work jointly on the Choshi offshore wind project near Tokyo, for which TEPCO has been carrying out a seabed survey to examine its feasibility, and […]
Tokyo Electric Power Company Holdings (TEPCO) is mulling a 1,000MW project in Japan that could be built off Choshi in Chiba Prefecture, The Japan News (The Yomiuri Shimbun) reports. TEPCO plans to set up an offshore wind farm comprising 200 5MW wind turbines, installed on fixed-bottom foundations, according to The Japan News, which further writes that the Japanese […]
Tokyo Electric Power Company Holdings Inc. (TEPCO) is launching its first commercial offshore wind turbine in Choshi, Japan, on 1 January 2019.
Tokyo Electric Power Company Holdings (TEPCO) has begun a seabed survey off the coast of Chiba Prefecture, Japan, to ascertain the bedrock structure of the seabed for a possible offshore wind farm.
Japan’s offshore wind capacity is expected to reach 4GW in 2028, a 62-fold increase from 2018, according to a new research by Wood Mackenzie. Wood Mackenzie estimates that Japan will see a power generation shortfall of more than 10GW by 2030, as it struggles to restart 30 nuclear reactors to meet the national nuclear target, and […]
A big turbine started spinning off Choshi in Chiba prefecture, writes Kyodo News. The 2.4 MW turbine produced its first power on Monday, as it was previously announced that the operation will commence this month. It has been installed within a research project with Tokyo Electric Power Co. (TEPCO). This 126 meter high turbine has […]
Japan is set to collect power generation information from two offshore wind turbines, installed in different locations, in order to overcome technological barriers in this energy sector and use its offshore wind resources as an alternative to nuclear power, Bloomberg cites Masaharu Itoh, director of the new energy technology department of Japan’s New Energy and […]
A wind turbine was erected off the coast of Choshi, Chiba Prefecture in Japan, in order to test the behaviour of offshore wind technology in rough conditions there. This area is known for its frequent typhoons and the fact that two tidal currents also meet there. The demonstration project will help figure out what system […]
MIT analysis suggests generating electricity from large-scale wind farms could influence climate — and not necessarily in the desired way. Wind power has emerged as a viable renewable energy source in recent years — one that proponents say could lessen the threat of global warming. Although the American Wind Energy Association estimates that only about […]
