WOOD THILSTED OPENS NEW OFFICE IN TOKYO
We are excited to announce that WOOD THILSTED has established a Branch Office in Tokyo, Japan following our positive experience in the Asian offshore wind industry in Taiwan. Our branch demonstrates the commitment that WOOD THILSTED is making in supporting the rapidly growing offshore wind industry in Japan. Japanese authorities have recently legislated a new law allowing for extensive development of offshore wind in the aim of achieving at least 10GW additional wind energy capacity by 2030. The offshore regions of Japan are challenged by restricted areas of shallow water, poorly understood geology and with the offshore structures and turbines being affected by earthquakes and typhoons. WOOD THILSTEDs local presence combined with industry leading support from offices in Denmark and UK will be key in providing optimized solutions to our clients in these exciting yet challenging conditions. Lead Engineer and Branch Manager, Amir Shajarati will be heading the Tokyo branch, and has relocated from Copenhagen to Tokyo as of September 2019. Amir is looking forward to learn about the Japanese culture, and especially to support the rapidly growing market for offshore wind while attracting local talent to expand WOOD THILSTEDs new Japanese office.
