Takeshi Ishihara



Unique opportunity to learn from Japans’ experts for floating offshore wind on September 23rd, 10:30 to 17:00.


  • Floating offshore wind turbines are the most promising technology for offshore energy generation. Japan is one of the countries that are leading this technology. CENER has invited experts from Japan to join a technical session about floating offshore wind in Spain.

  • Never has been easier for companies in Spain and Europe to access the state of the art of floating offshore wind technologies know how, than in this unique event.

  • CENER and ClassNK, the leading global certification society from Japan, invite the wind energy industry to participate in this exciting event.

Date: September 23rd, 10:30 to 17:00

Fees: Seminar fee: EUR 260/Person. Free seats are all taken. Participation with registration before September 22nd is now available at a reduced price of EUR 150/Person. We kindly ask for your understanding.
