Recently, the Japanese national project “Floating form of offshore wind power research” of the launching ceremony was held in Fukushima Onahama Port. The project of floating form offshore wind platforms mounted on 20 kilometers outside of Port Onahama, shipped from Chiba of 2MW wind power equipment will be combined with the 66kV substation floating body binding shipped from Yokohama, and recently officially to run and generate electricity.
This project is participated by NSSC, Japan JMU (Japan Marine United) company, Mitsui shipbuilding etc. 10 enterprises and the University of Tokyo. NSSC is primarily responsible for the development of high-performance steel. The project of 2MW Floating form of offshore wind power equipment requires high strength plate of 2000 tons. In the field of ocean energy steel, NSSC can take advantage of shipbuilding plate processing technology, in achieving high welding workability, cost reduction at the same time, fully considering the impact of wind wave adaptability, and the development of new steel materials.
The project is scheduled to start 7WM floating form of wind power projects in next year, each machines required 3,000 tons of plate, with wire and rod totally mounted about 20,000 tons. As new materials of the world’s largest offshore wind power equipment, required both the performance of high strength and high toughness to meet structure requirement of marine wind power. In the process of popularity of offshore wind power, the production cost is also very important, so it must vigorously reducing costs while ensuring excellent performance. Meanwhile, in the offshore construction need to consider the weather conditions. In order to shorten the construction period should greatly improve the steel welding performance and workability. The strength of steel must have resistance of seawater and wind. Britain is studying the construction of seabed fixed wind power, this requires more steel, therefore, the global offshore wind power market prospects timber.
NSSC engineering company is very concerned about offshore wind power project, in order to exert its marine towing and tethered etc. marine construction advantages to explore new markets. In this project, 2MW Floating form of offshore wind power equipment from Tokyo sea lead to Fukushima fixed, now is taking enhanced measures. The company will focus on strengthening the development of marine wind power projects, intends to use existing strengths to enhance the design, equipment manufacturing and construction, especially for floating form of offshore wind power from traction to fixed mooring of the main construction work carry out full summary, to promote the rapid development of the company’s business.
