Japan has strong ambitions to grow within renewables, and Statoil has therefore established a country office here to explore renewable and low carbon business opportunities and build our position within the Japanese offshore wind industry.

How to find us in Japan
Hywind floating wind turbine
We developed the advanced Hywind floating offshore wind technology which has recently been deployed in the 30 MW Hywind Scotland project, the world’s first floating offshore wind pilot park. The wind farm opened in October 2017.
We are also developing a small-scale battery storage facility, BatWind, to be linked to the Hywind Scotland project to test future business models that can maximise value of offshore wind through storage.
The future is afloat
Floating offshore wind will become cost competitive with bottom-fixed offshore wind as economies of scale contribute to cost reductions. Floating offshore wind and bottom-fixed solutions can take advantage of technology synergies in technology such as turbines and towers.
