Offshore wind project to be accelerated by Tokyo Gas, Wind Power Group, and Vena

The Kashima offshore wind plant in Japan is expected to be developed quickly by three energy firms. The plant, which will have a potential capacity of 159.6MW and cover a 680-hectare area in Kashima Port, Ibaraki Prefecture, will be built. The project will be started in 2024 by Japanese firms Wind Power Group and Tokyo Gas, as well as Singapore-based Vena Energy. The wind farm is projected to have enough renewable energy to fuel over 70,000 Japanese households per year until it is built.

It’s still anticipated to back the government’s carbon-neutrality policy for 2050. “Wind Power Group is a local organization that has been constructing onshore as well as offshore wind power generation ventures in the Ibaraki Prefecture for twenty years,” said Wind Power Group Chief Executive Officer Komatsuzaki Mamoru. ” Wind Power Ibaraki, one of our schemes, was particularly resilient during the Great East Japan earthquake as well as the tsunami of 2011.”

“Once finished, our local residents will see clean energy in action from the 19 offshore wind turbines in front of our main office, and we will leverage our expertise to contribute to the construction of this large-scale offshore wind project through our collaborators. In Japan, wind power production is entering a new period.” “The Kashima Port offshore wind venture is a major achievement for Vena Energy’s offshore wind plan, and we are pleased to enhance the construction of this venture with our partners,” stated Vena Energy CEO Nitin Apte.

Japan is a crucial market for Vena Resources, accounting for over a third of our 16GW clean energy portfolio in the Asia-Pacific area and the remainder of our offshore wind pipeline.” “To accomplish our Net Zero CO2 goal as laid out in our Compass 2030 group development vision, we at the Tokyo Gas are extending our clean energy sector to meet the aim transaction volume of 5GW by 2030,” stated Tokyo Gas president as well as representative director Uchida Takashi.

“Among the generation technologies, we will focus on offshore wind power, which we will develop in collaboration with local communities. “The mixture of gas and renewables helps us to have a sustainable and reliable electricity supply,” says one of our key companies, “Gas-fired generation has an edge in managing demand fluctuation in power produced by renewable energy.” We want to lead the way in green energy growth, which will help us achieve a more prosperous society.”
