Abstract

The potential of offshore wind power in Japan is high, because Japan is surrounded by the sea on all sides. For this reason, proving research and planning of wind farms have been conducted in various locations. However the introduction is delayed compared with Europe due to severe natural conditions such as typhoons and swells unique to Japan. Offshore Choshi is one of the suitable sites for wind power generation on the Pacific side, but there is no data about characteristics of high waves required for setting the design conditions and characteristics of low waves required for the construction onsite. Therefore in this research, we aim to establish the design and construction of offshore wind farm adapted to Japan, using wave data obtained by proving research offshore Choshi, to investigate the wave characteristics for wind farm design and construction.
