GLOBAL energy consultancy Xodus Group has agreed a partnership with Japanese firm E&E Solutions to deliver in-depth advice and analysis for the fast-developing offshore wind market in Japan.
The collaboration will bring together Aberdeen-based Xodus Group’s international track record in helping clients address industry challenges to enable offshore wind, alongside E&E Solutions’ extensive experience of providing environmental and renewable energy consulting services across Japan.
Adrian de Andres, Xodus Group head of offshore renewables development, said: “Japan is becoming one of the world’s leading countries in offshore wind development, driven by the need to accelerate the energy transition in this country and the rapid cost reduction of offshore wind technology worldwide.
“As pioneers in the floating wind sector, delivering work for the Hywind Scotland project, we are confident that by bringing our practical expertise and combining it with the local experience of E&E solutions, we can share lessons learned from global developments, maximise technical solutions and efficiencies and ultimately support Japan’s carbon reduction goals.”
Tomohiko Ike, E&E Solutions director, added: “With a background of providing support to renewable energy projects around the world, the cooperative arrangement with Xodus Group will allow us to provide a holistic service covering engineering, environmental and commercial advice.”
