Fukushima Experimental Offshore Floating Wind Farm Project

1. Outline of construction works in the second term:
- Assembly and setting of 7MW oil pressure drive-type and 5MW downwind-type floating
wind turbines, delivery of the facilities to the testing area, and connection to the undersea cable.
- Operation & Maintenance of the facilities
- Data acquisition and analysis.

2. Work progress to date:
<7MW oil pressure drive-type floating wind turbine>
- Preceding works i.e. installation of chains, anchors and undersea cables at the testing area has been successfully completed.
- Delivery of the three-column semi-sub floater from Nagasaki to Onahama port has been successfully completed.
- Installation of 7MW oil pressure drive-type floating wind turbine on the floater at Onahama port has been successfully completed.

<5MW downwind-type floating wind turbine>
- Procurement of chains and anchors, and production of high-voltage riser cable have been successfully completed.
- Parts procurement and construction of 5MW downwind-type floating wind turbine is in progress.

3. Next Step
