Ramboll Wins Five New Offshore Contracts in Asia
Ramboll is gaining momentum on the Asian offshore wind market. The Danish engineering company has secured five new contracts for offshore wind farms located in Japan, China, Taiwan and South Korea, and opens new office in Tokyo to secure a more permanent footprint in the region and serve its clients better. The five new contracts cover site condition assessment, project development and design services for offshore wind farms located in the emerging markets of Japan, China, Taiwan and South Korea. They were awarded over a period of ten months and have a total value of DKK 60 million for Ramboll. With a cumulated capacity of over 1500MW the five offshore wind farms will significantly contribute to the countries’ transition from coal and nuclear power to low-carbon energy.
The environment in the Asia-Pacific region is extreme and designing reliable foundations requires cutting-edge expertise.
Ramboll expects the installed offshore wind capacity in Japan, South Korea and Taiwan to grow from around 2 GW today to 25 GW by 2030.
This expected rapid growth of wind energy production as well as governmental climate policies supporting the increase of renewable energy in the region has led Ramboll to open a new office in Tokyo, Japan.
