A2 – Offshore Wind Project Development

In order to prevent the spread of coronavirus, we are offering the course online for the time being.

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 eight 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.

Here’s what some of the participants from across the country saying about the Offshore Wind Project Development Course.

Even though it was only two days, it was a systematic program with a lot of useful information for future business execution. (Major shipbuilding company)
It was a very useful course to learn concrete and practical contents for business development. (Renewable Energy Developer)
I think VR video is a very useful tool. Not only the visual representation and images, but also the sounds of waves and wind turbines were reproduced, which I felt made the simulation very close to reality. (Renewable Energy Developer)
I learned a lot from the lecturers who are actually involved in the development of offshore wind. All the lectures were meaningful, but I felt I learned a lot, especially about manufacturing and construction methods. (Technical consultant)
The lecture materials and explanations were easy to understand and I felt that the seminar was very good to learn. (Oil exploration)
The course was very useful for me to learn concrete and practical contents of business development. I think the course will be even more valuable if the workshop program is added to this content in a real lecture room. (Renewable Energy Developer)
