The 7th edition will be attracting 160 exhibitors from 13 countries and held

inside "World Smart Energy Week 2019". Along with the other energy-related

concurrent shows, 1590 exhibitors and 70,000 industry professionals are

expected to gather for the 3 days.

The highlight of this year is the field of offshore wind power which is already

common in Europe. While in Asia, Taiwan is a promising market, though Japan

also has considerable potential. In Japan, the revision of Port and Harbour Law

in 2016 led to introduction of a system guaranteeing occupation of a port area

for 20 years for offshore wind power generation. In addition, a new law was

come into effect last November stipulating the rules for occupying the general

sea area for 30 years. According to Japan Wind Power Association, offshore wind

power projects currently under the environmental assessment procedure are

expected to be 5 GW and the new bill to use the general sea area has created

room for another possible 7GW. Therefore, the association considers the goal of

10 GW of offshore wind power generation by 2030 would be achievable. For

instance, Japanese electric power companies and overseas power generation

operators such as Ørsted are also jumping into the growing market. Offshore

wind power market in Japan at the dawn will develop bright futures.

Following the rise of such market trends, Offshore Wind Power Zone in WIND EXPO

2019 has accommodated a large number of related technologies such as SEP ships,

cable laying ships, seabed ground survey, offshore wind power generation

system, and floating foundation, etc. In addition, major Japanese and overseas

companies such as MHI Vestas Offshore Wind, GE, Seajacks, Senvion, Penta-Ocean

Construction, and Nippon Steel & Sumikin Engineering, etc. will be exhibiting

their latest technologies.

The show also features a wide array of Technical Conference. On the second day,

the Special Session will be delivered by Cabinet Office, Government of Japan

about the current situation of offshore wind power generation, while Ministry

of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism will introduce its policies and

initiatives to promote expanded introduction in Japan. Penta-Ocean Construction

will also mention its offshore wind projects in the same session. Besides, more

sessions by the industry leaders from Japan and abroad will be delivered

throughout the show.

With the line-up of exhibitors and conferences, WIND EXPO is sure to be the hub

for business in the growing Japanese wind energy industry. Save your dates and

do not miss this indispensable opportunity to expand business in Japan.
