Global energy consultancy Xodus opens first Asian office in Japan

By Cara Lyttle

UK-based Xodus has opened its first Asia office in Japan to better support the growth of the offshore wind industry in the country. The company has also appointed Itsuka Ogawa as the company’s Japan country manager.

Ms Ogawa explained in a company press release: “Japan’s ambitious targets of 10GW by 2030 and 30–45 GW by 2040 are encouraging, but the lack of clarity on the policy, including process of the auction rounds and financial incentives, makes investment in local manufacturing and infrastructure high risk.

“This will not only cause delays in offshore wind farm developments, and hence failing to achieve their net-zero targets, but it will also make Japan miss its opportunity to revitalise the manufacturing industry and to create a driver for green economic recovery.”

Xodus was established in Aberdeen, UK, in 2005. It offers a host of services to the energy sector including process and facilities engineering, subsea engineering, environmental services, safety risk management, vibration engineering, wells project management and integrity management. The company’s new office adds to existing bases in the UK, US, Australia, the Middle East and Africa.
