A6-Floating Offshore Wind course

We are sorry, but this course is offered in Japanese only.In order to prevent the spread of coronavirus, we are offering the course online for the time being.

Participants will learn about market trends in floating offshore wind power, techniques such as floating structures and moorings, and installation and maintenance methods.

This course was jointly developed by Vryhof of the Netherlands, a company involved in Oil&Gas offshore platforms and demonstration projects of floating offshore wind turbines around the world, DOB Academy of the Netherlands, an educational institution for working people, and Nagasaki Ocean Academy. Japanese lecturers from the academy and university professors specializing in naval architecture and ocean engineering will give lectures in Japanese. The course is a two-day intensive course on marketability, selection of suitable sites, fabrication/installation techniques, operation and maintenance, etc., which are different from those of the bottom fixed foundation type.

”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.

<Schedule>

Day 1: 9am-5pm (followed by a social event in the Academy. (Drinks and light refreshments will be provided)
Day 2: 9am-5pm
Day 3 (on-site program): Depart Nagasaki Port at 07:40am, visit Goto Islands, exchange views with the fisheries cooperative, etc., and return to Nagasaki Port at 18:15 (Possible to break up the tour and remain in Goto Islands)
