The first wind turbine in an experimental project by the University of Tokyo and 10 companies started generating electricity Monday off the coast of Fukushima Prefecture.
The turbine, equipped with 80-meter-long blades, floats on the sea some 20 km off the town of Naraha. It will deliver up to 2,000 kilowatts to Tohoku Electric Power Co. through a floating substation and underwater grids, according to the Fukushima Offshore Wind Consortium.
The Fukushima Floating Offshore Wind Farm, or Fukushima Forward, is also funded by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry. The consortium plans to install two more 7,000-kw turbines by March 2015.
