Japan is installing the biggest floating wind turbine ever near Fukushima. The blades are 270 feet long. It will generate enough power for at least 3,500 homes. The photo and video show a smaller 2 MW turbine that was installed in 2013. The new turbine is much larger.
A mere 12 miles from the wrecked Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant will soon sit a 620-foot, 1,500-ton windmill atop a 5,000-ton podium. It’ll be the biggest floating wind turbine on Earth, and it could usher in a new age of green energy.
The turbine will generate up to 7 megawatts of electricity, making it Japan’s most powerful wind turbine, and the most powerful floating turbine in the world.
This truly is amazing technology.
