Toshiba and General Electric (GE) collaborate to generate a domestic supply chain for offshore wind power equipment.

This alliance comes as Japan focuses its efforts to augment renewable energy sources and attain its zero-carbon goals.

Japan has put aspirational objectives for its offshore wind power market, with plans to establish up to 10 GW of offshore wind capacity by 2030 and up to 45 GW by 2040.

These targets are under the government’s broader decarbonization initiatives to minimise dependence on fossil fuels and combat climate change.

Toshiba plans to commission production in 2026, with the target of assisting Japan’s growing offshore wind industry.

Under the collaboration, GE will manufacture a total of 134 wind turbines, each with a capacity of 13 MW, for three offshore wind projects that were secured by Mitsubishi-led joint ventures in the first round.

The outputs of the second round of offshore wind power tenders, which invited tenders for the development of 1.8 GW of capacity throughout four areas, are yet to be announced by the government. However, the alliance between Toshiba and GE marks the acceleration in Japan’s RE sector and the rising investment in offshore wind power.

With these joint efforts, Japan is moving towards attaining its RE targets and running the transition to a more sustainable and eco-friendly power generation system.
