TEPCO & Orsted to Establish JV Company for Offshore Wind

Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 3/18/2020, Location: Asia

Tokyo Electric Power Company Holdings, Incorporated (TEPCO), the largest power company in Japan, and Orsted A/S, the world's leading offshore wind developer, announced that they have agreed to establish a joint venture company, Choshi Offshore Wind Farm K.K., with the intention of working towards a joint bid in the Choshi-city offshore wind promotion area.

In January 2019, TEPCO and Orsted signed a memorandum of understanding to work jointly on offshore wind projects and have since then been working together to establish a framework and organizational structure for joint development of the Choshi Offshore Wind Project.

TEPCO and Orsted, having formalized their collaboration to develop the Choshi Offshore Wind Project, will submit a joint bid in the Round 1 auction once the Japanese government officially designates the Choshi-city offshore wind promotion area, and further work together on future offshore wind opportunities in the area.

TEPCO Representative Executive Officer and President, Tomoaki Kobayakawa, says "TEPCO and Orsted have been making excellent progress in developing our partnership and we are ready to see successful development of the Choshi Offshore Wind Project. Our two companies have agreed to establish a unique framework that enables us to effectively integrate and leverage strengths and expertise from both sides. We are confident this is key to succeed in the Choshi Offshore Wind Project."

"In April this year, TEPCO will launch its renewable energy business arm, TEPCO Renewable Power, to make renewable energy a core generating source. The partnership with Orsted and the establishment of Choshi Offshore Wind Farm K.K. will help drive business growth for the TEPCO group and TEPCO Renewable Power."

Orsted Chief Executive Officer, Henrik Poulsen, says "I am pleased to see our close collaboration with TEPCO for more than one year has led to the successful establishment of the joint venture company for the Choshi Offshore Wind Project. With Orsted's strong global capabilities and TEPCO's local expertise, we are well prepared and dedicated to participating in the upcoming auction."

"This joint venture is not only a significant step in Orsted and TEPCO's efforts to deliver on Japan's ambitions for domestic renewable power generation, but also a landmark moment for Orsted's market entry in Japan and for our aspirations to help Japan become a leading offshore wind market in Asia Pacific."
