Two companies have joined forces to support cost reductions for offshore wind projects in Japan.

Hitachi Zosen and Universal Foundation is working on a feasibility study to assess the application of Mono Bucket technology for a Japanese offshore wind generation project.

A concept in offshore wind engineering, the Mono Bucket is said to be suitable for a wide range of soil profiles, uses 25% less steel compared to similar structures and installation is noise-free.

The project is looking to combine the achievements from commercial projects in Europe and the US and apply specific conditions and requirements relevant to the offshore wind sector in Japan.
