what do you guys think of this


Japan’s devastated Fukushima prefecture may be the site of the world’s first offshore, floating wind farm.

The government announced it would install two 7-megawatt turbines and another 2-megawatt turbine off the coast of the prefecture. Construction of the smaller turbine will begin later this year, and the larger ones will begin in 2013 and 2015.

“Fukushima Prefecture expects this experimental project to spawn a new industry in renewable energy and create employment as part of recovery efforts” in the wake of the devastating earthquake last year, according to a release from Mitsubishi, one of the companies involved in developing the wind farms

im going to chalk this up to a plus...

.. depending on what the radiation level would be off shore.

once they are hit by radiation they stay that way. any maintenance workers would be exposed. from the sea or the air.

might be a good job for robots.

It would seem pretty stupid building anything off the coast Japan, but then again, where else would they put a floating wind farm, in the centre of Tokyo.
