Universal Foundation is proud to announce that the company is engaged in Japan together with Hitachi Zosen. The cooperation is focused on a feasibility study to assess the application of Mono Bucket technology for a Japanese offshore wind power generation project. The project is looking to combine the achievements from commercial projects in Europe and the US, with the specific conditions and requirements relevant to the Japanese offshore wind industry. The work aims to support cost reductions for offshore wind projects in Japan.
“We are very pleased with the trust shown to us by Hitachi Zosen and the project partners. This project enables early engagement in the developing offshore market in Japan. We can provide support with our knowledge from Europe and the US on suction technology and how the Mono Bucket technology can be applied in Japan”, said Søren A. Nielsen, Head of Technology at Universal Foundation.
Hitachi Zosen Co. Ltd. is executing the works under a partnership with Kyoto University (comprising of Kyoto City, Kyoto University, Kyoto University) and Toyo Construction Co. Ltd.
