Background Webinar

Japan announced this summer its sixth Strategic Energy Plan in which a significant increase in renewables will be part of the energy mix, including offshore wind energy. Japan has commissioned its first tenders for bottom-fixed windfarms and in the next decade more than 10 GW is going to be realized.  For the construction are less invasive technologies developed, such as gentle piling. In this webinar, silent foundation technologies for offshore wind farms are introduced.

Japan is also targeting floating constructions for offshore wind farms. Since the country is surrounded by deep sea, floating turbines can be installed in deeper waters compared to bottom-fixed turbines. The infrastructure for floating wind is in a starting stage, but the Japanese government supports more technological research for this via the Green Investment Fund.  The Dutch floating wind supply chain could be a great partner in Japanese market.
