After Fugro and NYK already partnered on providing offshore geotechnical services in Japan, the two companies have now also joined forces with leading Japanese geoscience specialist OYO Corporation. Together they hope to profit from the growing offshore wind site characterisation market in Japan.

Fugro, NYK and OYO will provide a comprehensive service for the offshore wind energy industry in Japan through the combination of the joint operation of an offshore geotechnical investigation vessel by NYK and Fugro, Fugro’s global knowledge and experience in site investigations for offshore wind farms, and OYO’s insights into the Japanese geoscience market.

‘We’re delighted to welcome OYO to the team alongside Fugro and NYK and view this as another positive step forward for the Japanese offshore wind industry,’ says Jerry Paisley, Fugro’s Marine Site Characterisation Director for Asia-Pacific. ‘OYO’s mission to contribute to the creation of a safe and secure society blends perfectly with Fugro’s vision to create a safe and liveable world, and increasing the proportion of renewable energy generated in Japan is our joint investment in Japan’s greener future.’
