Japan's largest wind turbine, a 2.4 MW machine being developed by Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI), is to be installed at Yokohama by the spring. The turbine will go up at MHI's Kanazawa facility at its Yokohama Dockyard & Machinery Works. The electricity generated will be sold to local utility Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO). Mitsubishi says the turbine has a double-fed generator and will operate at variable speed with an individual pitch control system for each blade. It is designed to survive typhoon conditions.
