Shimizu Corporation and Heerema Marine Contractors have entered into a cooperation agreement for the Japanese offshore wind market.
The cooperation is primarily focused on installing turbine foundations, where Heerema will support Shimizu with engineering and offshore construction expertise. Shimizu is one of the largest General Contractors in Japan and the company has been involved in the first Japanese offshore wind pilot projects. Shimizu is currently building a Self-Elevating Platform with a 2500t crane suitable for offshore wind construction. The vessel will be delivered late 2022.
