Japan is dropping a massive 330-ton turbine power generator onto the ocean floor just off the country’s coast

in a bid to source theoretically limitless renewable energy.

Japan’s new 330-ton subsea power generation system can float in strong currents to generate renewable energy.
The 100-kilowatt-class “Kairyu” system completed a 3 1/2-year-long demonstration of the machine in February, and will now move toward commercial use.
Dual-turbine blades both generate energy and keep the machine steady in one location.
