Samkang M&T has bagged its first Japanese offshore wind project “Fukuoka Kitakyushu Hibikinada” where the company will supply jacket components for Nippon Steel Engineering
Samkang M&T is an important contributor to the offshore wind market in Asia (excluding China) where it already has been part of several projects in Taiwan. Now as Japan and South Korea are accelerating their offshore wind development, developers are looking to companies like Samkang M&T to fabricate their foundations. For the project just awarded Samkang M&T will fabricate steel components for the jacket at “Fukuoka Kitakyushu Hibikinada” which will support a Vestas V174-9.5 turbine. This turbine model is something Samkang M&T is familiar with after doing jackets for “Changfang & Xidao Phase 1 and 2” supporting the same turbine.
