Accordingly, the three partners will provide a comprehensive service for the offshore wind energy industry in Japan through the combination of the joint operation of an offshore geotechnical investigation vessel by NYK and Fugro.
Fugro will have its own role in the partnership, providing its knowledge and experience in site investigations for offshore wind farms, and OYO’s insights into the Japanese geoscience market.
Referring to the partnership, Jerry Paisley, Fugro’s Marine Site Characterisation Director for Asia-Pacific, stated that
OYO’s mission to contribute to the creation of a safe and secure society blends perfectly with Fugro’s vision to create a safe and liveable world, and increasing the proportion of renewable energy generated in Japan is our joint investment in Japan’s greener future.
The project began on 2020, as NYK collaborated with Fugro Singapore Marine Pte. Ltd. and Fugro Japan Co. Ltd., on an offshore geotechnical investigation vessel business related to offshore wind power generation.
