Fukushima Floating Offshore Wind Farm Demonstration Project



Participated in WIND EXPO 2017

WIND EXPO 2017 was held as a part of the Smart Energy Week 2017 from March 1st to 3rd in the Tokyo Big Sight. At the venue of the Smart Energy Week, the exhibition of the field including hydrogen, fuel cell, a rechargeable battery, solar power, wind energy and the thermal power was shown, and the person concerned as well as the general visitor had deep interest in those. According to the organizer, 62,395 people visited the venue in 3 days.

Fukushima offshore wind consortium participated in the EXPO, in order not only to introduce the world’s first offshore floating wind farm demonstration project broadly to people in and out of Japan, but also to exchange information with people involving wind power. Approximately, 4,800 people visited the exhibition booth of the Fukushima offshore wind consortium in 3 days.

At the booth of the Fukushima offshore wind consortium, a large display showed movies of the construction record of the demonstration project, and the power generation of the 2MW wind turbine. Those panels and brochures in English were prepared for the overseas visitors in order to explain about the summary and the progress of this demonstration project. Newly, the model of an advanced spar equipped with 5MW called “Fukushima Hamakaze”, and a large panel which overlooks the project site, were displayed, and those of which could make it possible to realize the completion of the largest offshore floating wind farm in the world for the visitors.

As large investment in offshore wind turbine farm is expanded in Europe, the interest of the visitors concerned is increasing now in Japan. The seminars on the offshore wind farm were held every day in the corner of the offshore wind area and many visitors came to our booth and many questions were raised about the progress of the Fukushima demonstration and the future industrialization with their great interest.
