The agreement covers the provision of the port facilities to the project company and specifies on the roles and responsibilities each of the two parties carry. It also lays out the basis for benefits to be brought to the local community and responsibilities towards the community with regard to the project, such as keeping the stakeholders – including the local residents – updated on the works on the project.

In February 2017, the government of Kitakyushu City selected the consortium comprising Kyuden Mirai Energy, Kyuden Corporation (Kyushu Electric Power), Hokutaku Renewable Energy Service, J-Power, and Seibugas to build the offshore wind farm off the Port of Hibikinada. Shotly after that, the consortium established the special purpose company Hibiki Wind Energy to lead the development and operation of the 44-turbine wind farm.

The Hibikinada offshore wind farm is being set up to support the Green Energy Port Hibiki in Kitakyushu City, accelerate the development of marine renewable energy, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and contribute to energy security, according to the consortium behind the project.
