Ocean wind is larger and more suitable for wind farm than inland wind. Recently, ocean wind farm has been constructed in Europe using 5MW wind power facility. Japan is surrounded by ocean and seems to be suitable for construction of ocean wind farm. However, the amount of the shallow and low wave energy area for ocean wind farm is limited except semi-enclosed bay like Tokyo bay.
When we see Tokyo bay, shallow area (shallow more than 15m) is located north of Futtsu Point in Chiba prefecture. Such a shallow area is near to urban area, so the construction cost seems to be lower. In this paper, feasibility study on the ocean wind farm north of futtsu point in Tokyo bay is done compared with the other coasts of Japan.
