Floating Offshore Wind Turbine Plant is generally considered to have less impact for the scenery, sound and low frequency noise, because windmill is placed offshore far from land.
Since this is the first case of the demonstration project for the floating system in Japan,
environmental impact assessment including observation of wind velocity, wave, water quality and bird strike have been done in advance.
