Installing monopiles at Akita-Noshiro project

IQIP is proud to support the Akita-Noshiro offshore windfarm project. This first Japanese large-scale offshore windfarm project is being developed near the Akita and Noshiro port.

For this project, IQIP will deliver installation equipment for the foundations of the wind turbines. In total 33 monopiles will be installed, of which 13 will be installed near the Akita port, and 20 near the Noshiro port.
