A2 – Offshore Wind Project Development

This course will provide you with a set of knowledge to manage and work on projects.

The course covers farm life cycle, bidding, consortium structuring, farm design, assembly, transportation, profitability management, HSE and more.
In addition to the nine lectures, the course includes group work on wind farm development and operations management. Working in teams, students will simulate site selection, layout decisions, logistics and assembly, installation, operation and insurance. We will learn about profitability and risks in a concrete way by carrying out the project.
We also provide a workshop that utilizes a VR system to learn more about each component of the offshore wind turbine and learn about the hazards and the risks of offshore work.

”On-Site” is a hands-on training program that is unique to Nagasaki, which has actual sea areas.

We are planning to visit offshore wind turbines and their installation vessels, have an exchange meeting with fishermen who live in harmony with offshore wind turbines in Goto, acquire data using offshore floating observation equipment and experience ROV operation, etc.


Day 1: 9am-5pm (followed by a social event in the Academy. (Drinks and light refreshments will be provided)
Day 2: 9am – 4pm.
Day 3 (on-site program): It will vary from time to time, but the program will be held from 7:00 am to 3:00 pm, with a visit from Nagasaki City to Goto City and ending in Nagasaki City.
