Universal Foundation and Hitachi Zosen team up to push competitive offshore wind in Japan
“We are very pleased with the trust shown to us by Hitachi Zosen and the project partners. This project enables early engagement in the developing offshore market in Japan. We can provide support with our knowledge from Europe and the US on suction technology and how the Mono Bucket technology can be applied in Japan”, said Søren A. Nielsen, Head of Technology at Universal Foundation.
Hitachi Zosen Co. Ltd. is executing the works under a partnership with Kyoto University (comprising of Kyoto City, Kyoto University, Kyoto University) and Toyo Construction Co. Ltd.
The decision to engage Universal Foundation in the feasibility study was based on a comparative assessment of various foundation types for a wind farm of 15 wind turbines. On an EPCI cost assessment the Mono Bucket was concluded to be the most cost effective and it has the potential to shorten the length of the construction period, making it an attractive overall solution for the specific wind farm.
