Japanese offshore wind with great potential for future growth

Japanese offshore wind with great potential for future growth

Currently, projects under preparation for construction and environmental assessment procedures are more than 12GW and expected to grow at a rate of about 1 GW / year. The government has set a goal of introducing 10 GW of offshore wind power in 2030, which is considered achievable.
Human resource shortage is a critical issue in Japan

Human resource shortage is a critical issue in Japan

On the other hand, there is a concern that there will be a shortage of marine development engineers with practical technologies and know-how that will be the driving force for incorporating such growth. In order to further expand the market in the future, the training of these engineers is now essential. On the sea day in July 2015, Prime Minister Abe stated that the goal was to increase the number of marine development engineers from about 2,000 to 10,000 by 2030.
  • Current engineers involved in offshore development in Japan: Approximately 2,000
  • Human resources required in Japan for offshore wind power in 2030: Over 8,600.

Establish and operate an academy in collaboration with the Nippon Foundation and Nagasaki Prefecture

Establish and operate an academy in collaboration with the Nippon Foundation and Nagasaki Prefecture

Therefore, in order to promote all-Japan efforts to cultivate marine development engineers required in the marine development market, with the cooperation of Japanese companies, universities, public organizations and governments who intend to enter and expand the marine development market, we decided to establish Nagasaki Ocean Academy as part of Nippon Foundation Ocean Innovation Project.
As well as grasping the needs of companies related to the training of marine development engineers and matching with education for adults and universities, education and practical training that are difficult to implement only by individual universities and companies are conducted in the academy.

Our Vision and Mission

Vision
-Creation of new value -
In Nagasaki, we will create a place for learning, exchange and experience that aims to create and promote a new offshore industry (mainly offshore wind power generation) and create new values that attract many people from all over Japan and Asia.
Mission
  • In addition to basic learning and specialized learning, people can learn practical issues such as on-site experience and the latest information, creating an attractive and continuous field of practical learning.
  • Provide a meeting place where business can be accelerated by building a network with domestic and foreign experts.
  • In addition to excursions with fishermen who live with offshore windmills in Goto and tours of offshore windmills, etc., we will provide information on the ecological behavior of offshore windmills and fishes, creating an attractive place unique to Nagasaki.
