Offshore Wind Consultants (OWC) is setting up an office in Tokyo to support the Japanese offshore wind market.
OWC stated that it had previously worked in Japan’s offshore wind sector from its office in Taipei, Taiwan.
“The Japanese government has announced big ambitions when it comes to renewables in general and offshore wind specifically. We want to be part of that vision and be available for offshore wind developers here, while also contributing towards local job and value creation,” said Will Cleverly, OWC Managing Director. “Setting up an office in Japan is an obvious next step for us.”
To head up the new office, OWC appointed Isao Terasawa as its first country manager, coming from Mott MacDonald’s Japan office where he held the role of general manager.
According to OWC, Terasawa was involved in several offshore wind projects in Japan, including the Akita, Kashima and Hibikinada offshore wind farms.
