    Launch of Japan's 16.8-MW offshore floater delayed by two years

    September 25, 2023 - SeeNews Renewables


      September 25 (Renewables Now) - The companies developing the 16.8-MW Goto City floating wind farm project off the coast of Japan have postponed the commissioning of the facility to January 2026.

      The floating offshore wind plant was originally scheduled to come online in January 2024, but the plan was changed due to construction delays caused by the discovery of defects in two floating structures.

      The wind park will be located off Nagasaki Prefecture, featuring eight machines of 2.1 MW each.

      Toda Corporation (TYO:1860), the company leading the consortium behind the project, investigated the causes, considered countermeasures, and has now taken corrective measures. Thus, construction work at the onshore yard was restarted.

      To avoid more delays, Toda will inspect a floating structure already installed off the coast of Sakiyama. According to the press release, the integrity of one of the three floating structures installed will be verified in the yard at Fukue Port where, based on the results, Toda will decide whether to inspect the remaining two floating structures.

      In addition to Toda, the Goto consortium includes Japan Renewable Energy Corp (JRE), Osaka Gas Co Ltd (TYO:9532), Inpex Corp (TYO:TYO:1605), Kansai Electric Power Co Inc (TYO:9503) and Chubu Electric Power Co Inc (TYO:9502).
