World's largest floating wind turbine nearly complete in Fukushima

The world's most powerful offshore wind turbine rises at the port of Onahama in Iwaki, Fukushima Prefecture.

TOKYO -- Construction of a skyscraper like floating wind turbine, the world's largest-class, is expected to be completed June 22 in Japan's northeastern Fukushima Prefecture. 

     The government-sponsored project, carried out by some of Japan's best-known companies and university, is touted as a symbol of the rebuilding of Fukushima, which was devastated by the 2011 earthquake, tsunami and nuclear meltdown. The turbine will have the largest generating capacity of any offshore windmill in the world.
