Outline

This project is the first floating offshore wind turbine in Japan and is the latest experimental demonstration. We installed this system in a bay off Kabashima island in Nagasaki prefecture, and we were able to provide more than enough energy for the whole island. As the population is small we were able to use the excess energy to produce hydrogen. We then created Japan's first Fuel Cell powered boat. The only resources we used were the sea and the wind. We need to hurry up and combat global warming and this technology can be used throughout Japan and finally all around the world.
