As part of the penetration into strategic markets for wind resource and metocean campaigns, EOLOS continues to secure partnerships in order to offer the turn-key offering it is known for, using its FLS200 integrated buoy.
Spain based EOLOS and Japanese Windpal have signed an agreement for securing business in the Japan by combining EOLOS FLS200 technology and digital services with Windpal environmental marine services expertise and proven quality excellence in executing safe and sustainable operations at sea.
EOLOS will provide Windpal the necessary technology and digital data services insight for offering the most attractive and sustainable wind and metocean measurement services to offshore wind developers. Windpal will be monitoring regulatory frame progress closely as well establishing permanent contact with local stakeholders to effectively execute campaigns from an early stage.
“Windpal is an exceptional partner to attend the demanding standards that the Japanese market is known for. Their proven experience in the offshore sector, demonstrated through their competence with geotechnical surveys, together with their strong technical capabilities and appetite for being part of the ambitious offshore wind development plans in Japan made them the an ideal partner candidate”, describes EOLOS Business Developer Sergi Roma.
