As a part of the ongoing demonstration research efforts on offshore wind turbines with fixed foundations, NEDO has released observational data on wind conditions, marine conditions, and wind turbine electrical generation for offshore wind turbines located off the coast of Choshi in Chiba Prefecture and Kitakyushu in Fukuoka Prefecture.

With the expectation that the data indicating the characteristics of external offshore conditions will be utilized for the introduction of offshore wind power generation in the future, NEDO will continue to publish observational data collected until the end of project operations during fiscal year 2016.
