Fugro and NYK Group (NYK) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to provide offshore geotechnical services in Japan.

They will also collaborate on a feasibility study into jointly operating a specialist investigation vessel for renewables projects. This strategic partnership will benefit from Fugro’s technical and operational expertise in offshore wind and NYK’s knowledge of the Japanese market.

Japan’s burgeoning offshore wind industry is predicted to increase national demand for geotechnical investigation vessels. By joining forces, Fugro and NYK will be able to meet this demand and contribute to the successful development of offshore wind as a sustainable energy source for the country.

Akira Kono, NYK’s Senior Managing Executive Officer, said: “Fugro’s expertise in geotechnical investigations and NYK’s knowledge of the Japanese market will be essential for supporting our customers and this partnership will contribute to the positive development of offshore wind business in Japan.”

Jerry Paisley, Fugro’s Marine Site Characterisation Director for Asia-Pacific, said: “This strategic partnership with NYK further demonstrates our Geo-data expertise in the renewables sector. As a market leader, Fugro has over 25 years’ experience in European offshore renewables and has been delivering offshore wind projects in Asia-Pacific since 2016. Offshore wind developments in Japan are accelerating and this partnership with NYK positions Fugro at the forefront of these developments that support our vision to create a safe and liveable world.”
