The Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Japan, together with the Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO) has commissioned Blix to perform a floating offshore wind market study in Japan.
The goal is to strengthen offshore wind collaborations between the Netherlands and Japan, and to obtain a better understanding of the floating offshore wind market in Japan. Blix will perform the market study over the course of the coming months, after which a seminar will be organised to present the results to companies and organisations based in the Netherlands. Japan has an offshore wind target 30-45 GW installed capacity by 2040. Because Japan has limited shallow-water sites where bottom-fixed offshore wind turbines can be installed, there is a strong demand for practical floating offshore wind supply chain solutions for deep water further from shore.
