Following the Fukushima disaster, Japan has hunted for alternative energy solutions without neglecting any source: the Japanese government has invested heavily in geothermal power plants, in photovoltaic systems and inwind power, all this in order to replace his nuclear reactors. Eliminate the need for nuclear power plants, for Japan, it is not an easy task but a further step forward will be taken with theoffshore wind energy.

In Japan, thenuclear energy it satisfies the energy needs of a large portion of the population. Recently, Japanese officials unveiled plans for staging what has been described as the wind farm largest in the world. It will be set up 10 miles off the coast of coast of Fukushima, a symbolic position for the country.

Here's what you read on PhysOrg:
“Currently, the largest wind farm in the world is located off the coast of Suffolk, UK. This is the Greater Gabbard plant and produces 504 megawatts of energy with 140 turbines. "

In Japan, off the coast of Fukushima, it is planned to set up a offshore wind farm of 143 turbines, with a capacity of 1 gigawatt. The PhysOrg portal, as well as the Italian press, has forgotten that a offshore wind farm even bigger, always off Suffolk, the plant of theEast Anglia Offshore Windfarm. That of Fukushima it could be the offshore wind farm largest in the world for its kind: le wind turbines they will not be implanted directly into the ocean floor but will stand on steel frames that will act as a support platform.

The choice of location is not ideological. The coast of Fukushima was not chosen for its symbolic value, off the coast there was already an infrastructure used to transport energy from the Daiichi nuclear power plant, the same infrastructure that, modified, will be the basis for wind turbines.

The prefecture of Fukushima has a very specific goal: to achieve energy self-sufficiency by 2040, the wind farm 1 gigawatt is just one of many pieces of the puzzle.

    In general, it's funny.
