The Fukuoka Prefectural Government (FPG) is planning to construct an offshore wind farm in Fukuoka Prefecture, Japan.
The project involves the construction of an offshore wind farm with a total generation capacity of 229MW. It includes the construction of a substation, access roads and wind tower platforms, the installation of generators, transformers and 44 wind turbines, and the laying of transmission lines.
In 2015, the Ministry of the Environment (MoE), in partnership with the city of Kitakyushu was instructed to study the potential for up to 700 MW of offshore wind energy, in the waters off Hibikinada.
In May 2016, City of Kitakyushu suggested four possible sites – Zone A, 1,367 hectares; Zone B, 720 hectares; Zone C, 533 hectares and Zone D, 67 hectares – totalling 2,687 hectares for project development.
In August 2016, tender documents were issued to lease a 2,687-hectare nearshore area, currently controlled by the city’s port, to developers interested in establishing an offshore wind farm.
In February 2017, a consortium of Kyuden Mirai Energy, Kyuden Corp (Kyushu Electric Power), Hokutaku Renewable Energy Service, J-Power, and Saibu Gas, lead by Hibiki Wind Energy was appointed as the project developer.
The environmental impact assessment (EIA) study is expected to take three to four years to complete. Construction is expected to commence in 2022.
The project involves the construction of an offshore wind farm with a total generation capacity of 229MW in the Port of Hibikinada, off the coast of Kitakyushu, Fukuoka Prefecture, Japan.
The US$1,540 million project includes the following:
1. Construction of a substation
2. Construction of access roads
3. Construction of wind tower platforms
4. Installation of generators
5. Installation of transformers
6. Installation of 44 wind turbines
