In this paper, we describe the analysis of the dynamic response of a 2 MW floating offshore wind turbine (FOWT) at the time of typhoon attack in the actual sea area. In order to introduce floating offshore wind turbine in Asia, it is essential to evaluate the influence of typhoon attack accurately. This FOWT, named HAENKAZE is the only FOWT to operate commercially in areas where typhoons occur. On July 3rd, 2018, the strongest typhoon (Prapiroon) at the installed area of the FOWT since its installation approached the HAENKAZE. The central atmospheric pressure of the typhoon at the closest time was 965 hPa, the maximum instantaneous wind speed at the hub height was 52.2 m/s, and the maximum wave height was 7.1 m. In this paper, the dynamic response of the floating body at the time of typhoon attack is compared for the measured and the simulated values. As a result of the comparison, basically a good agreement has been obtained between the measured and the simulated values except for yaw response, for which the simulated values considerably overestimate the measured values.
