Penta-Ocean partners with DEME

Penta-Ocean Construction and DEME Offshore have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to collaborate on the construction of offshore wind farms in Japan.

The development of offshore wind projects has gained considerable momentum throughout Japan. However, DEME said that these projects can face very complex subsoils due to mixed sandy and rocky, sometimes soft grounds, together with severe metocean conditions like typhoons and bomb cyclones.. In addition, seismic forces need to be considered.

By combining DEME Offshore’s experience and technological know-how in Europe with those of Penta-Ocean in Japan, the two companies said that they will be able to provide comprehensive solutions to these challenges. 

“We believe that our collaboration will make a significant contribution to the further expansion of Japan’s offshore wind industry, through the realisation of safe and highly efficient construction methods,” added DEME and Penta-Ocean.

“As a first step, we will start with the introduction and development of advanced technologies that are deemed useful and beneficial to the Japanese market, leading to joint execution of offshore wind farm projects in Japan.”
