J-Power are one of Japan’s largest power generation companies and intend to build the country’s first major offshore wind farm in Kitakyushu-city in the early 2020s as part of a plan to decarbonise and rebuild Japan’s electricity industry. J-Power asked JLL to help them gain know-how by investing into a European offshore energy project.
Our understanding and experience of the offshore wind market were key for supporting J-Power in a successful competitive auction bid to acquire a 25% share of Triton Knoll.
This £2bn offshore wind project which will be constructed by innogy, one of Europe’s leading developers and operators, will provide J-Power with invaluable experience in delivering offshore wind projects in Japan. J-Power confirmed their satisfaction with JLL’s support as Financial Advisor in achieving this great milestone.
