Under the MoU, the companies will provide pre-construction, operations and maintenance (O&M), and vessel services to offshore wind projects in Japan.

“By partnering with SOMAC, a company with a deep heritage and extensive experience across multiple industrial sectors in Japan and the wider region, OEG Renewables has a strong credible strategic partner with which to grow and develop its integrated service offering in Japan’s growing offshore wind sector,” said Kevin Wu, Regional Director (OEG Renewables) APAC region.

In the coming years, 3.5 GW is planned to be added to the existing 259.5 MW installed capacity as Japan targets 10 GW by 2030 and up to 35-40 GW by 2040, including from floating offshore wind, as part of its goal to reach net-zero emissions by 2050, OEG said.
