Japan is a country with limited energy resources; however, in the waters around Japan, we have a variety of ocean energy resources. In particular, the potential of offshore wind energy is enormous, and also the development of new energy resources such as methane hydrate is their infancy. For Japan who relies on foreign countries for the majority of energy resources, to proceed with the development of these ocean energy resources is very important, not only in order to contribute to the improvement of Japan's energy self-sufficiency, but also to fulfil the entry into the ocean development markets of the world. Therefore, we shall work on the following two themes:

Floating Offshore wind Turbine
