Japan to Try Floating Wind Turbines #japan

This experimental project consists of three floating wind turbines and one floating power sub-station off the coast of Fukushima. The first stage of this experimental project will begin this year and consists of one 2MW floating wind turbine, the world’s first 66kV floating power sub-station and undersea cable. In the second stage of the project, two 7MW wind turbines will be added between 2013 and 2015.
