BW Ideol and Tohoku Electric Power have jointly initiated a series of feasibility studies necessary for the development of a commercial-scale, floating wind farm off the coast of Kuji city in Iwate prefecture.

The two companies intend to work on this project as a first step towards the commercialisation of cost-competitive floating offshore wind power in Japan.

The Iwate project will utilise BW Ideol’s patended damping pool foundation technology, which was developed to optimise turbine stability and performance even under extreme conditions.
