New Fukushima – wind power instead of nuclear power plants

After the accident at the Fukushima nuclear power plant in 2011, Japan has decided to opt out of this type of energy, close all nuclear power plants in the next few years. Here, in order to cover the shortage of energy, and will open the world's largest wind station, which will receive all the same name Fukushima.


Japan has twice suffered from nuclear disasters. The first time was during the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945, the second in connection with the accident at the Fukushima nuclear power plant in 2011. And it is no wonder that this nation has developed a fear of radiation and nuclear reaction itself. In this regard, the state even took the difficult decision to close over time, all nuclear power plants operating in the country.

To replace the lack of electricity is planned with other types of energy, including solar and wind energy. As evidence of the seriousness of these plans can result in project to build the world's largest wind farm, located very close to closed now Fukushima.


The process for the implementation of this project will begin in the very near future and by 2020, as planned, the new plant will consist of 143 giant turbines that produce a total of 1 GW of energy. That's about half of the atomic power station Fukushima-1. Moreover, the launch of the first phase of this wind farm is planned to be implemented in 2015. And bring it to its full capacity in 2020.
