Simec Atlantis looks to Japanese expansion with new Nagasaki office

A Scottish renewable energy firm is looking to expand its reach into Japan with the creation of a new office in Nagasaki.

Edinurgh-headquartered tidal firm Simec Atlantis Energy confirmed today that it was creating a new entity called Atlantis Operations Japan (AOJ),

The firm’s Japanese arm will manage the construction works due to be carried out under Atlantis’ EPC contract with Kyuden Mirai Energy.

Simec Atlantis will supply a 500 kilowatt (kW) tidal turbine and deliver all onshore and offshore construction.

The new turbine will be launched between the southern Japanese islands of Hisaka and Naru.

Tim Cornelius, chief executive of Simec Atlantis Energy, said: “This is an important step in the continuing growth of the Atlantis Group into new and expanding Asian markets.

“We will be exporting Scottish tidal technology and expertise to Japan as well as importing Japanese combustion technology into the UK.

“This is cross-border technology transfer that will aid the energy transition and is a fantastic example for how governments, both national and local, can work together to achieve zero net carbon targets whilst at the same time creating local, long term, sustainable employment.”

Simec Atlantis Energy operates the high profile Meygen tidal project in the Pentland Firth in the north of Scotland.

It also announced last year it plans to build the AR2000 tidal generation system – which would be the largest and most powerful single axis turbine in the world.
