After the nuclear accident at Fukushima and several protests targeting NATO to senior officials took steps to gradually bring this potentially dangerous source of energy of the country, the Japanese government finally agreed to start investing in the development of the power industry, engaged in production of renewable energy.
By July 2013 the final version of the project will be the world's largest wind farm. Ironically, this same farm will be located about 16 km from the coast, which is Fukushima. The structure of the farm will include 143 turbines that will generate 1 gigawatt of power. All of the received energy will be integrated into the national grid and fill exactly the amount of electricity, which was lost after the explosion of two nuclear power plants in Fukushima.
Many skeptics about when a wind farm is a place where natural disasters occur frequently, which eventually destroyed Fukushima, the question arose about the feasibility of its construction in this earthquake-prone areas of the sea and a tsunami. But designers are assured that every effort to create a turbine design that helps maintain their integrity in all forms of extreme weather.
It is expected that work on this wind power plant will be completed at the latest by 2020.
