Abstract

The floating type wind turbine demonstration project has been promoted in Japan. In 2012, a 1:2 scale model was installed off Kabashima Island in Nagasaki Prefecture. And a year later, a full scale model was installed. For the design of the wind turbine's floating body, winds, waves and other parameters were analyzed. For the construction and daily management, a prediction system was developed and the predictions and observations of winds and waves were compared and the agreement between them was good.
